Norma Wilson Original Soft Pastel Keesha Portrait

14" by 18" original soft pastel on wallis sanded paper

Tonight's post is from my private collection and is not for sale. It is a tribute to my dog Keesha who passed away today after being a faithful friend for the past 17 years. She has been with my family since my college age sons were in pre-school and has moved all over the country as we moved with the military. She loved to spend many hours out in the back yard chasing squirrels or the boys as they played. She loved to circle the yard and did her runs so many times that she wore a path into the grass. In recent years she could be found at my feet as I painted in my studio....always ready to follow me if I needed to put in more laundry or get a cup of tea. Bailee, our other dog. loved to be her eyes and ears when she began to fail and would coral her and nip at her heels when it was time to come in from the yard. They both loved their snacks that they would get when they came into the kitchen. We will miss you Keesha!
