One of my clients, Gretchen, sent me a video of her sister Heidi opening a gift; the portrait I had painted of Heidi’s beloved, departed cat, Baldwin. Only once before have I seen a person receive one of my portraits as a surprise (it was you Ann Mintz!). If you want to watch but cut to the moment, it’s at about 3:45. She first gave her a print of a dapperly dressed Bearded Dragon, and then the commissioned portrait of Baldwin. Such a gift to me to see my paintings land in appreciative hands.
