I also wanted to share a very special painting by Alice Boston who is 11 years old and lives in the UK.  She and her class have been studying my work and she sent me a photograph of the oil pastel painting she did of her dog “Storm.”  I love this painting with the expressive eyes and eyelashes and the wonderful use of color.  When I look at this artwork my heart immediately connects with the artist and her subject and I know that this adorable dog is loved.  I want to thank Alice for taking the time to send me a photo of the painting and for giving me permission to share it with you.
