I was shopping around on Etsy and found this wonderful artist, L.A. Shepard. She really captures the spirit of the dog and she has a large body of work. I love all of her dog prints, especially the German Shepherds 🙂 And her story is wonderful too. She began her full time painting career to be able to support her family while taking care of her husband (who was suffering from brain cancer) at home. Her husband, Gary, had an idea to start a movement for people to celebrate their birthdays by giving a gift to someone in need. You can read more about it on L. A. Shepard’s “About” page. What a wonderful idea and one I plan to see through on my upcoming birthday. Gary ended up passing away, but his idea lives on and you can help make it bigger by incorporating it into your birthday celebration.
Visit L. A. Shepard’s Etsy Shop, TheDogLover, and check out all of her beautiful prints.
