Ben Kilt

This is a painting I created yesterday, Mothers Day here in the UK.
It was painted for a very special dog 'mum and dad' .

Lynne and Stuart loved Ben so much, he was a part of their wedding day. This watercolour and ink was from one of the wedding photographs.
Sadly, early last week, Ben was found to have multiple cancerous tumours. Lynne and Stuart lost their beloved dog. They had seen him through sudden onset spinal injury, got him the best care and saw him walk again. He was a well travelled dog, going on many holidays with them both.
There are a raft of happy memories of the much loved Ben.
I hope this painting will become another.

    Thanks, Judy. I have painted Ben before, after his op when he could walk again and from a boat trip in the arms of each owner, which I gave to them as a wedding present! Well remembered!
