This is my Emmah. My Emmah is the MOST wonderful dog in all the universe! She has many “favorite” things in her life. Eating is her favorite! Playing is her favorite! Walking is her favorite! But one of her greatest delights is, “Going for a ride in the car!” She runs to her leash and bounces about like she’s still a pup (She turned 10 in May, this year).

I just had to capture the moment in time, so rather foolishly, I pulled out my iPhone and maneuvered my hand and “trigger-finger” just so, and began rattling off photos galore. They almost all came out fuzzy; all but one! And that wonderful shot is what I painted from. I’m so thankful that I get to capture this memory in time, since it happens to be one of my favorites!
