Sophie is our neighbors yellow lab, a real sweetheart. I see her from my studio window out playing and when visiting with our neighbors she comes over to me for an ear or chin scratch. This painting was done as a surprise thank you gift to her owners who clean the snow from our driveway and are just plain exceptional neighbors which I am sure they have an exceptional dog like Sophie. Here in Minnesota the winter especially throws curves at us with severe weather changes , sometimes bringing more snow than our little machine can handle and our good neighbor steps in at the crack of dawn to make sure we can get in and out. So we have two pleasures from these good people, a blown out driveway and a delightful dog to enjoy as well.
How lucky can we get?
