This painting was commissioned to be given as a gift.
Within a year's time, the recipient of the painting lost her beloved dog, Oscar, and her horse, Scooter.
What a huge loss. My heart always hurts when hearing of the loss of another person's pet. I hope my art will help soothe their pain. If not now, hopefully in the future when their heart is healing.
I asked the gift giver to share a little bit about Oscar and Scooter, this is what she told me:
Oscar was a rescue that my friend Christy took in many years ago. Oscar did agility but as Christy would say, he did it because he wanted to please her. Oscar was retired after receiving his PACH and was Christy’s constant companion. He loved going to the barn to be with his horse, Scooter, but most of all he loved Christy. Oscar was an easy going dog that was loved by all that knew him. Unfortunately, Oscar died suddenly earlier this year and left us heartbroken. He was one of a kind and is missed each and every day.
Hoping Oscar and Scooter are running again, together, in lovely green pastures.
