Chloe - with a heart as big as an elephant


This beautiful watercolor of a Boston Terrier named Chloe profoundly portrays the best friend of Desiree's daughter,  Jennifer.  Shortly before Jennifer's 24th birthday she was the victim of an accident and through no fault of her own was left wheelchair bound. Though the circumstances of Jennifer's story are difficult to accept, she remains a young woman who doesn't give up, who loves life and who enjoys a very special relationship with her constant companion, Chloe. 
Chloe' s expressions bring joy and amusement as they reflect her boundless love for Jennifer.  This special dog is all of the characteristics that are inscribed around the edge of the card and much more. 
Desiree thank you so much for this very special card mit herzlichen Gruessen, auch an Jennifer and Chloe - the dog with a heart as big as an elephant. Albrecht

This is a lovely study of this little dog. Even though she's much loved it's not a sentimental painting - rather ir shows her character. I love it.

Brava, Desiree, I agree with Bridget this little dog speaks from the page. Beautiful animal sketch.

What a great painting, Chloe's character totally captured in just a few brush strokes. I love it when watercolour can convey so much.
