CUSTOM PET PORTRAIT GIVEAWAY WINNER – LOLA

ABOUT A MONTH AGO – My friend Melaine at MY SWEET SAVANNAH hosted a

 “LESLI DEVITO CUSTOM PET PORTRAIT GIVEAWAY ”

The winner was Lisa, and the beautiful dog that I got to paint is a golden retriever named “Lola”. Lola was 2 years old when she was adopted by Lisa and her family…which included her 4 year old son, Parke.

“She has been with us since she was 2 years old. She was living with a military family that was being sent overseas and we were able to adopt her. My son, Parke, had just turned 4 and he was afraid of dogs at that time. My husband and I wanted a gentle dog that Parke could grow up with.”

LOLA – such a beautiful special girl….

When Parke was 10, his father died unexpectedly and Lola was a source of great comfort during that very difficult time.

LOLA still gets around despite her advanced years.

  1. Parke and I just received our beautiful portrait of LOLA this week! Lesli, you are incredible! When we opened the box, tears jumped into my eyes! You perfectly captured LOLA in a portrait! We will have her with us forever! Thank you again for this precious gift!

    1. Lisa,

      I mean this sincerely when I say…the pleasure was all mine…I loved painting LOLA…she is beautiful and such a very special dog…as you well know!!! Enjoy these precious few weeks before Parke heads to college!!! xo

  2. You did a beautiful job with Lola’s portrait. Lisa is my sister. I was lucky enough to win a portrait (by Sue Scoggins) of my 16 year old long-haired dachshund, Boogie, a couple of years ago. Boogie passed last year at 18. Parke and Lisa will love having a portrait of Lola for years to come.

  3. Wow – your talent is amazing. And what a sweet, lovely subject Lola is. Her sweetness is so evident in both the photograph and the painting.
