Pet Pride: portrait of a pampered pet

Portrait of Lindy by well-known Canadian plein air artist Aleta Karstad. Lindy's mom commissioned the portrait as a gift for Lindy's dad.

Posted for
Pet Pride
hosted by Lindy's friend Bozo and his family
at their Pets Forever blog in Mumbai, India.
Lindy says, "Hi there, Bozo. Isn't this a wonderful surprise?
I didn't even know my mom's friend Aleta was painting a picture of me.
I didn't have to sit still to pose for it or anything.
She painted it from a photograph, and it looks just like me."
