WE LOVE OUR PETS
did a giveaway of one of my Custom Pet Portraits last year…
5,431 people entered to win!
LETS FACE IT…WE LOVE OUR PETS.VERY MUCH.
I MEAN, WE REALLY REALLY REALLY LOVE OUR PETS.
…………and why? because ALL our PETS ask OF US ..is that WE let THEM LOVE US.
It is as simple as that. I am convinced that the crazier the world gets…the more we turn to our pets…those in our orbit that have no time for politics or pride…popularity or money…they keep us warm and give as a place to wipe our tears. They seem to know exactly when we need them most…
We LOVE our pets.
CUSTOM PET PORTRAITS are such a great gift. I say that NOT just because I paint them…but because IT IS TRUE. We spend so much money On gifts…and quite often, even as we are signing the check or typing in our pin numbers..we KNOW that we are falling short…that we have just gotten STUFF and have not gotten a TRUE GIFT.
I believe a true gift comes from the heart…it makes a connection and it says, “I thought about you and what makes you happiest…”
I cannot tell you how many times I have gotten this sentence in an email …
“My husband…who NEVER cries…wept when he saw …..”
“My Mom was so surprised…we all cried…you brought ….back to us!”
“The kids said…MOM IT LOOKS JUST LIKE….”
I LOVE LOVE LOVE what I do. I get to connect to people at the heart…bypassing all of the millions of things that we do not have in common…and cutting straight to the chase…
…to the divine meeting ground…
…I feel so blessed that I get to meet people where their hearts live…
….in the eyes of their dogs and cats and horses and cows…in the warm fur or puppy breath..
A new friend of mine, whose dog recently passed away, wrote “.
“…but God did give us a glimpse of Himself in the face, heart & soul of that dog”
I meet people through their pets..introduced by the faces that know who they really are and love them even more…despite all of our imperfections and foibles, even though we yell and squabble, are petty and gossip, keep score and far too often – fall short of our better selves.
They love us.
They Just LOVE us.
…..and keeping them nearby, in the form of a piece of Art that captures their special-ness…
….how can that be anything BUT?
THE PERFECT GIFT!
