A Saving Angel...

10" x 8"
oil on panel

I had the honor of painting a true hero. Last year an artist friend's house caught fire. Reba saved the family by barking and waking everyone up to get to safety. Sadly, Reba passed away in the fire. She will be missed by all. Somehow I feel I got to know her by painting this little remembrance. 
You were a good dog, Reba and you will not be forgotten.


  1. Such a sad story but an amazing portrait of this beautiful hero!!

  2. Thank you for the wonderful photo of your painting. Reba looks like she was truly and angel.
