Carol poses with a very charming Hutto Hippo. She painted the concrete statue in the team's colors. This hippopotamus was a Christmas gift from the client to his wife. Carol enjoys tackling unusual projects. Her motto: "If it'll stand still I'll paint it."

This client's beloved golden labrador was very old.
He commissioned a folk art style portrait by
another artist in oil pastels.

Disappointed with the portrait the client brought it to us for additional work.  The owner was delighted saying that his grief at losing his best buddy was much lessened by the new portrait.
