For Pippen

We were saddened to read of the passing of Pippin (or Pip) as her Mom called her and we are sending big hugs across the seas to Molly (Pips protector) and her Mom.

Over the weekend Mom watched a TV show where an artist was talking about his work and he mentioned how he always paints the eyes last as he says when the painting has eyes it can look back into your soul. A light bulb went ping above Mom's head when she heard that as she too ALWAYS paints the eyes last and spends the most time on them trying to capture that 'certain look'. When the eyes are finished Mom feels a special connection with the doggie - she says it is hard to explain but it is there and she feels it especially strongly in angel doggies she has painted and ones that become angels. Run free over the rainbow bridge Pip.....and watch out for the other Pip...we hear he still hasn't got the hang of his wings yet :) Please call on by Molly's page and leave a hug.


  1. that is just a beautiful painting and you are so right about the eyes. Hugs from all of us

  3. Bree thank you for your kind words. Our hearts are broken. We will treasure both Pips portraits forever. We look at them and try and remember better times.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. That was a wonderful post. I love what your mom said about the eyes and I love the way your mom paints the eyes. I was so sad as I read about Pip at Mollys blog...

  5. Hugs to Pip's family.

    Your paintings will be treasured forever.

  6. What a BEAUTIFUL Post fur our PIPPIN. AND you are SO right... She needs to keep her EYES on the OTHER Pip... beclaws he is Crashing and Banging all around the Bridge with those Wings of his... We think that LESSONS are in order fur him.
    BOTH PIPs will be missed SO much.

  7. We are so sad about Pip.
    Love your picture. It is strange you should say that about when you finish a picture. Whenever I finish a mini-me, it almost feels like there is a little soul inside it.

  16. What a gorgeous painting...your mom just blows us over with her arooootiful artwork!

    We LOVE your Christmas baubles with your pics in them!

    We hope your mama is getting stronger and stronger each day.

  17. Yes, you're right. It is the eyes. And they know it. My dad says that we look away from the camera and refuse to look into it. Really????? :)

  18. The eyes are the window to the soul, my friends. I believe most artists save the eyes for last. The eyes add the "final touch" and make the painting most resemble the subject.

    I love mom's painting of Molly & Pippin. It is perfect!

  19. What a beautiful tribute and a beautiful painting! You have our mom in tears because you were so sweet with so many gifts for Maggie when she crossed.
    Your mom is a gem, Reilly and Denny. Take good care of her ♥
