Portrait and My Puppy

I was contacted by an animal portrait artist named Connie Bowen just a couple of weeks ago, asking if she could paint my dog "Molly Grace" from a picture I had uploaded to my flickr account when Molly was just 12 1/2 weeks old.   I of course said yes and to my surprise I opened my email and found this beautiful painting of Molly Grace from when she was a puppy.  

Original Picture of My "Molly Grace"

I just love it!  She captured Molly so beautifully right down to the expression of her eyes.  The picture she used is on the right. The detail of her collar and ID tag she wears too.  She has many other paintings and from what I see on her site you can have her do paintings as well.  The site is  www.ConnieBowen.com please go and check it out she does such beautiful work.  

Today, Alan is off from work so we have a few errands to run but then we will be having a meeting later this afternoon with a woman from the American Heart Association regarding this years "Heart Walk".  I am excited to meet with her and discuss our fundraising efforts.  We walk every year in honor of our daughter Kaylee Rose who was born with congenital heart disease.  Her story can be found at www.KayleesHeart.com.

Have a great day!! 


  1. Wow DAWN!!! That is an amazing portrait!!! I love it!! Have a great day!! ((BIg HUGS))!!

  2. Hi Dawn, thank you so much for coming by my blog and taking the time to leave a comment. I love that portrait of Molly, wow! I've enjoyed reading through of your other posts and wanted to say I'm so sorry about Misty. I lost a cat years ago after we'd only had her for 4mths (she was hit by a car) and it broke my heart, I can only imagine the loss you feel after 19 years. Sad to say I found out some years ago that I am allergic to cats so we can't have any more. We have a little shih tzu named Boo :)
    Hope you come visit again.

  3. HI Dawn lucky you to get a photo painting of Molly! wow that is gorgeous! I love it so much.
