"I am Michael Utkus' wife and Baxter's mom. Words cannot express how much I love the oil painting of Baxter!! It is wonderful and it certainly was a fabulous Mother's Day present. The painting hangs prominently in our dining room and it makes me smile every time I walk by.What is particularly striking is how you captured his spirit/expression. His eyes are soulful and he's looking at me in that picture the way he often looks at me - as if to say "what's up?" or "when are we going for a walk?" or " A TREAT???"Thanks again! You did a fantastic job and I love it!! Best, Fran"
And I think Baxter also looks quite pleased with his portrait.
I can work with you to keep your portrait a surprise. Barbara
