Alaskan Malamute - Mable

9x12 Acrylics on Wrapped Canvas
Mable - Alaskan Malamute

This was a commission I finished last Summer, but the dog's human just got the gift. She was so kind to write to me how much it means to her. This moves me more than I can say.

Hello Elizabeth,

            I am an old friend of your sister Pam’s , from our “halcyon”  Ulmstead days.. and she was kind enough to have you paint a portrait of my dear dog Mable.

           It is simply lovely, and I want you to know that you caught the color and cast of her beautiful amber eyes to a T. I am not an artist...but imagine this is truly the hardest thing to capture. I am confident you get a number of these testimonials to your talent, but I wanted you to know that this work of art, goes to the top of my “what would you save, if God forbid, your house caught on fire”. The subject herself would be first ( of course) ..but your painting is a very close second. I will enjoy and treasure  it for many years to come, and it was most kind of both of you.      

                                           Thank you so much again,
