Remembering Karen

 

Fun loving, friend, mother, adventure seeker, Karen was on my board in December of 2015. She loved walking her dogs.

Her husband asked me to create this portrait as a gift for himself, his son and two daughters at Christmas time.

He was kind enough to write me a follow up letter after the portrait was opened Christmas morning.

"Dear Sarah, my family and I would like to thank you for the amazing portrait of Karen. You captured her beauty and soul. It was a pleasure to work with an artist that cares about details and perfection. I recommend everyone to have Sarah draw a portrait of your special someone, so they may live on in her work and in your hearts. Gord. "

Her spirit is very much alive.

Thank you for sharing this special lady with me Gord. May the portrait of your lovely wife trigger story telling episodes with your family, keep your memories fresh, and her spirit alive with you all.

Sarah
