Did you know that Vancouver has a watercolour painter who is making beautiful pet portraits? Tara @paintandpins made this great painting of my friends dog Sophie who sadly passed away. If you’re wondering what kind of gift to give a loved one or to yourself, consider commissioning a pet portrait from Tara.

I don’t make work for myself. Having an inability to hold images in the mind’s eye means when a loved one dies, I can’t grieve with visual memories for comfort. Drawing Shine really helps integrate her death and it’s helping me grieve properly.
As some of you may know, my oldest dog Shine died in December. She was my service dog, and my rock. Living with an acquired brain injury and Complex PTSD can be challenging, and Shine stepped up to the challenge with an instinct I’ve never known. She is greatly and painfully missed. Rest well sweet girl. You were the best. Lynallan’s Brushwood Xcel - call name “Shine” July 18th, 2005 - December 17th, 2018 • We Let You Go Into the darkness and warmth of the earth We lay you down Into the sadness and smiles of our memories We lay you down Into the cycle of living and dying and rising again We lay you down May you rest in peace, in fulfilment, in loving May you run straight home in God's embrace Into the freedom of wind and sunshine We let you go Into the dance of the stars and the planets We let you go Into the wind's breath and the hands of the star maker We let you go We love you, we miss you, we want you to be happy Go safely, go dancing, go running home
