Picture1When Elvie was a baby I did a pastel painting of a white dog holding a sign saying “Elvie’s Room.”  At some point through many changes and moves, I’m not exactly sure how or when, the picture was lost.  In the busyness of life, work and raising two daughters, my artistic endeavors came to a screeching halt.  Elvie had suggested that I should try to duplicate the picture.  Now that I am retired and with a little room to breathe, although my skills are quite rusty, for Elvie’s birthday this year I gave it a shot.

doggieIt is not a duplicate.  The dog and sign are different and I used watercolors this time. It certainly is not a masterpiece, but it was done with as much love as the original.

Happy Birthday Elvie!
