Baxter portrait finished!
I finished the portrait of Baxter for Brian C. and Frank A.
While I was working on it Frank sent this cute story about Baxter:
“I thought I’d let you know about something Baxter does that really connects the two of us. I was sitting with him one day on the couch, and he looked at me so intently. I grabbed his face in my hands, very closely, and stared into his eyes. We were locked. I “flicked” my tongue out and back in quickly. He repeated it. I did it again. He copied. I “flicked” twice. He mimicked me. I repeated, one, then two, and mixed it up and he never missed a beat. It ends by me giving him a big comfort hug and telling him how special he is to us. Our family and friends are always surprised at this connection. He is so smart.”
