Off topic: "Gentle Friend"

This little girl just got me, so here she is with the "Gentle Friend", which recently passed. I hope it touches you.

Wess, why is it I feel like I haven't seen anything from you in a coon's age?
It's a very soft, sentimental piece. It's a shame she lost her "gentle friend," and I hope this piece helps the family commemorate.

It's always such a touching thing when a pet & little one take to one another, isn't it?

College Bound

Thanks PurpleMonkeyWrench.

My wife's bday is coming up so this past weekend I locked myself away while she was out of town and got completely consumed on one of her favorite subjects, my son! This is the shot when we dropped him off at college and were about to leave. I sure hope she cries. LOL

I sure hope you like it too!!!!

I'm pretty sure she will love it! The detail is amazing. Have you sold any of your pieces?

So, so beautiful.

**I must not forget to thank the difficult horses, who made my life miserable, but who were better teachers than the well-behaved school horses who raised no problems.**
