I meant to share this a while ago but I couldn’t post too early and ruin the surprise, then it got lost in the shuffle of the holidays.

Take a look at what an amazing job Portland, Oregon artist Kellee Beaudry did on the portrait I commissioned of  my sister’s sweet little dog, Pikala! I was amazed at how well she captured her expression.

Kellee also has a great video on her web site showing original photos and the paintings she’s made. I hope you’ll check it out and support this talented artist! Thanks Kellee.
