TWEEDLES x 2


Look at what I got in the mail! Several postings back I posted this painting of Tweedles, which I had painted from a photo from James Parker's blog. In addition to these photos of a very photogenic Tweedles, I also received a beautiful & sincere letter of thanks that made me cry & smile all at the same time...this is why I love to paint!

Tweedles, you are the best; please tell your moms hello for me!

Wow! Seeing Tweedles sitting next to his portrait just shows how awesome your work is, Angela! In fact, it almost looks like an album cover! Maybe Tweedles can launch a whole new career!! Something about Tweedles' eyes...So beautiful!

Angela, To have such a response to your painting has to be the eptiome of compensation for the artist, you. They stand as "large" as your painting does. How adorable these two photos and what is said of you as a person and artist when you shared them and your emotions when opening them up. No words can measure up to what is "written" in these two photos.
We all aspire to receive such an accolade. You certainly deserve it. (I love what Sheila wrote, too. Pooches can't speak humanspeak, but they do have their own dogspeak.) Ruth
