Olivia - Australian Shepherd

Olivia's charismatic photos were found while I was browsing Aussies on Flickr one evening. As soon as I saw those arresting eyes, that face, I knew I had to paint her. Who was she? Where was she?
I contacted the photographer and sadly, Olivia had passed away months ago. She was 11 and had contracted vestibular cancer.
The photographer graciously shared not only photos of Olivia, but a moving memorial slide show that had me sniffling.
My own aussie Risa is the companion I love to be with and spoil. Risa is now 10 1/2 and I am enjoying every golden day with her.

Love this one too. But then again, I'm very partial to Aussies.
