ABOUT A MONTH AGO – My friend Melaine at MY SWEET SAVANNAH hosted a
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.”
When Parke was 10, his father died unexpectedly and Lola was a source of great comfort during that very difficult time.
LOLA AND PARKE HAVE GROWN UP TOGETHER….
…NOW PARKE HEADS TO COLLEGE THIS FALL AND LISA HOPED HE COULD TAKE “LOLA” WITH HIM, AT LEAST HER PORTRAIT….
I WAS HONORED TO BE PART OF SUCH A SWEET GIFT FROM MOTHER TO SON…
