When we think of our beloved pets, particularly those who have departed, most of us will conjure a favorite visual image (or two) permanently seared in our brain. For me, the image is of a late December afternoon, when the low San Antonio sun soaked the fields and intensified the majestic colors. I will never forget my wonder that nature could create such a beautiful palette of light, shadows, and color.

McGee sat patiently in those fields (a rare occurrence) as if she, too, were absorbing nature’s artistry. I thought at the time that this was a “Monet moment” when natural beauty and canine companionship coalesce to form an unforgetable image.

To preserve and enhance my memory, I have given the original capture an impressionistic flair. Although both have passed on, McGee and Monet remain two of my very favorites and have forged an inexorable bond.

Long an avid admirer of artistic beauty, I have only recently embarked on the process of creating art. It is a passion, indeed, and one that provides nourishment for the soul.

Thank you very much for the visit, and I hope you enjoy the final product as much as I have enjoyed the creative process.
