I’ve known Shelby, my friend and neighbor, for almost 7 years.  We’ve watched each others’ pets while the other is on vacation.  That’s trust right there.  She has been such a good friend to me, and helped me with the deaths of two of my kitty pals over the years.  To express my thanks, I wanted to surprise her with portraits of her furry family.  One of her friends conspired with me; she snapped pictures of her gang and sent them my way to work from.  See the finished project below.  The canvases are small; four inches square and an inch an a half deep.  The surprise unveiling was a success!
