I have commissioned Gwen to paint a portrait of Riley to go with the one I have of Allie. She is going to use the photo below to paint from She'll change the pattern on the collar to make it less season specific. I cannot wait to share it with all of you when it is done.

For those of you who were not members when Gwen painted Allie, here is her portrait. I love it so much!
