The painting, “Athena” came about in the most unusual way. A very nice lady, named Teresa was admiring some of my work on my “Facebook Artist’s page”. I happened to notice her profile picture next to her comment. It was an absolutely beautiful photo of a German Shepherd. I immediately got in touch with her and asked for permission to paint her beloved dog. She graciously agreed; and the rest is history. She enjoyed Athena’s portrait so much, she had to have it. So, the portrait will go to live at Teresa’s house. What a happy ending to a great story.
