A Wonderful Gift

I had a wonderful 4th of July holiday last week for numerous reasons. Not the least of which was my brother had this piece of art commissioned as a surprise gift for me. There was no occasion, my brother is just thoughtful and awesome! The work is of my dog Duncan, who I still miss immensely and will always be a part of me even though he has been gone for some years now.

The drawing was done from one of my favorite photos of Duncan. You can see the bond we shared reflected in his eyes.

The piece now resides in my office at work so I can enjoy it there. The portrait was done by a family member in my brother’s extended family. Thanks Chris Whitaker! I would recommend Chris if you are interested in something similar of one of your own furry or feathered family members. He has an Etsy Shop called WHITSwhiskers.

Hope your days are blessed with such thoughtful and talented family as well.

The Artist

This is my little artist, Zekie. He uses many mediums and is especially into repurposing.

This is his fiber art piece. It’s the jacket he moved his crate across the room and took off a chair. Then he pulled it through slats in his crate and shredded it. Anything for his art.

This is one of Zeke’s repurposed metal sculptures . As you can see he is creative and quite the determined worker.

Personally, I am hoping he will take a hiatus from future projects. I have my doubts but time will tell.
