my name is Ellen

Tonight I went to the Pedigree site to donate money to their Adoption Drive. I read about Ellen, a sweet little Terrior mix who is being treated for heartworm and waiting to be adopted. After I cried, I sketched her. It was my attempt to honor her and all dogs.

Your work really brings out the personaiities of the animals. And the colors really add to the life-likeness.

What a lovely portrait, Ellen does look like a real sweetie. I hope she is adopted soon too. Could your drawing of her be used as a fund raiser for the animal shelter? Might be a project.
