‘I have been holding off on posting this artwork for several weeks until the owners came to the gallery to see it for the first time. Tammy and Daniel gave me a totally open brief to do whatever I felt best showed the real DC and Titan (on the right). I popped in for a 'get to know you session' with the brothers (Australian shepherds) and was truly blown away by their marvellous character. DC was as he appears....a total and irrepressible ball of fun and energy while Titan was the Zen master.....he absolutely flawed me with his serene, gentle and open presence. I have spent time with Buddhist masters who also emanate that same mill pond energy. Calm surface and deep presence. Loved spending time and getting to know them both and will cherish the memory always.
When the owners came to view and collect the finished work there were many tears all around and for them the artwork truly evoked the spirits of both boys who will now live forever in their hearts through the medium of art.
This is my mission in life....to bring joy and awareness of the blessings that other beings give us so freely. Thankyou Daniel and Tammy for trusting me to do what it takes.’
