I ADORE KATIE COURIC.
LOVE HER. And in addition to all the obvious reasons I love her….here are two more stories
Katie Couric was the KEY NOTE speaker at my very ever first blogging conference. She is so adorable and sharp and beautiful and flexed her muscles and I felt like she was talking to ME!!!
And when it came time for the question and answer portion…a woman raised her hand and said:
“Sometimes it is hard …when you get to a certain “older” age…as a woman….NOT to feel Invisible…”
and Katie Couric replied – “So JUST DON’T BE INVISIBLE!!!!”
It was not MEAN and it was NOT dismissive…it was just a great advice…and what I took away from that was that YOU/ME/I am have limited control over how others see us but CAN control how we see ourselves…..sure..aging can be a serious pain…on all fronts….on the other hand…aging is a GIFT!!!! Many people don’t get to grow older, fix mistakes, see grandkids or just another sunset…I JUST LOVED her!
She inspired me to be VISIBLE!!!
I took Phoebe to see the Katie Couric show for her 16th Birthday. And afterward, Katie walked over to us and asked us where we were from and when we said “Charlottesville!” She got so excited and we talked about UVA and she wished Phoebe GOOD luck and told her “Happy Birthday!” and to study hard!!! Also, at that show, sweet adorable little Cooper paid a visit and was so happy to be onstage he did a little pee pee on Katie and she had to change during the break!!!! and I vividly remember saying to Phoebe “Someday/ I am going to paint a portrait of Cooper for Katie.”
LIFE IS GREAT !!
KATIE COURIC ROCKS AND PAINTING HER DOG COOPER WAS A BLAST!!!!

So exciting, Lesli! I love the wind blown look in Katie’s portrait!
Thank you Caley! the painting is called “Cooper on the Beach” !
Hi, Lesli. Love, love, love your dog portraits! I was just in for a haircut this morning with Will at Salon R in Crozet and saw your work there. He said you live, I can’t remember- Batesville or Greenwood? I am in Old Trail. I have a dog that looks very similar to Katie Couric’s but is a totally different breed. He is a Coton de Tulear. I am wondering what you charge for your pet portraits. Do you work from photos? My daughter does phenomenal dog portraits, and I have several that she has done of my past dogs, but she can’t seem to find the time for this one.
All the best, Claire Ober
