Best Friend

“Best Friend” is a 24×20″ acrylic painting on canvas. This piece is a dedication to my beloved black lab, Ebony, who passed away.  I wanted to convey the happy, bubbly, friendly spirit she had, so i used happy pastel colours and painted her with an emphasis on her “cuteness”.  This painting makes me smile and feel happy about her, instead of reminding me how much I miss her.

The collar is actually a collage element from scrapbook paper that has sayings about love and friendship on it.  I thought it was fitting because she was not just my best friend, but was a central element to my little family.  She will be missed dearly, but I know she had a happy, loving life, and is waiting patiently for the day when we can see each other again.

You can watch the creation of this painting here (part1) and here(part2).
