Golden Friendship

12 x 12
Oil on panel backed canvas

Sam's parents set out to find a therapy dog for him, but when they found Shadow, they knew he was going to be part of their family.  Shadow was just a puppy at the time but was already disfigured from untreated mange.  Still his incredible serene and angelic personality was apparent and to know him is to love him.  I just finished this last night, just in time for it to dry and be wrapped for my sister ( Sam and Shadow's mother ), for Christmas.  Hopefully this isn't the one time she looks at my blog!
