Wanted to share a commission I had done...

Hey guys,

So as some of you may remember, last month a former horse of mine named Murphy died of severe colic very unexpectedly. She was only 14 and it was devastating to both her owner and I. Babu's Charm "Murphy" 1996-2010

I wanted to immortalize her in some way but at first, I didn't know how. Murphy was the sweetest horse I have ever owned and all of her emotions were in her eyes. I needed a way to convey that so, I asked our very own Liz Norris to do a drawing of her

This was the result. To see the original, go to the link I posted above.

A++++++++ reviews for Liz. She is an amazing artist who does her commissions in a timely manner and always keeps in contact about the progression of the drawing.

Thank you, Liz! Her owner will be so surprised!

What a wonderful job Liz, you are very talented and gifted!

Drew *HUGS* I wish I could take the pain away, but you have an amazing drawing of your beautiful, loving, talented girl to keep her with you always.

I am soooo pleased with the drawing. I can't imagine what Liz (her owner) is going to do when she sees it. Actually, I know exactly what she's going to do... Cry!
