Portrait of Bear
Look at this lovely portrait of Bear! Liz G. who is a regular commenter here, had a friend do this watercolor of my sweet girl and surprised me with it.
The artist's name is Soko Okada and I think that she captured Bear's look perfectly. The watercolor sketch below was done by Soko's teacher, Robert Stott. (Liz said that Soko asked for his help in painting a dog she'd never met.)
And this charming German Shepherd below is more of Soko's work -- Liz's dog Sky, adorning a note card taken from the original.
I'd say Ms. Okada has a real knack with dogs! Many thanks to her and to Liz!
And many thanks to all of you who commented or emailed with condolences. The loss of a beloved pet is never easy -- but your kindness and concern has been heartwarming.
