Linda's Precious Poppy

Many of you may know Linda from The Briar Rose Gate blog and her beautiful art work. I was saddened to read that her dear Poppy had passed on. I just wanted to make a little painting to show my vision of Poppy happy and frolicking and looking over Linda.

I'm sad whenever someone close to our heart passes away.I haven't seen the wings of the dog first but when i read i realised. Like an angel he'll always remain close to our heart.Your thought of this painting is wonderful and far more touching.

Oh Shelia...this almost brought me to tears. What a beautiful painting! Love that yellow and the fluttering wings.

Sheila, you are all heart! I love this piece and you certainly suggested that this little angel is watching over her owner.

Also, I checked out other work done while I was on vacation. You were very prolific in spite of life's time challenges. I especially like your "plane art" from your Minneapolis trip.

How sweet, Sheila!

I love the wild brushstrokes in the background. It makes everything look more lively and creates a sense of motion.

Poppy is smiling down on this one.
