Wishing for Spring.

"Cherry Blossoms"

For years, Springtime entered my world with cherry trees lining our street - each resembling parade floats of tissue paper pinks. It was a glorious sight, made somewhat more spectacular as the blossoms began to fall. As we walked under the branches, we would be showered with confetti petals of pink.

Jasper is one of those blessed little creatures who is a work of art in himself. There was not one photo of this boy that didn't show his 'best angle' while illuminating his adorable personality. I sought to capture his intelligent and sweet nature by focusing on the alert brown eyes and their steady, confident gaze, his relaxed expression and lolling, bubble gum tongue. Even in repose, he looks ready to sprint at a moment's notice. The ears are slightly cocked forward reflecting his curiosity, his back legs thrust behind him suggesting a dog who is completely relaxed and comfy in his little universe.

Jasper's mom was the winner of the portrait auction to benefit the Stratford Animal Rescue Society (S.T.A.R.S.) annual event held October 2013.
