Loving on Rosie, New contemporary Pet Portrait by Sheri Jones


Loving on Rosie
10x8 oil on linen panel

Now, during these times of required stay-at-home guidelines and pent-up frustrations, I cherish my precious pet, Rosie who provides us with unconditional love and happiness.  Making the decision to bring home our Mini Aussie during this time was the best decision we could have made.  We were fortunate to adopt her at 10 weeks old in early February before the Covid-19 pandemic had set in. She is helping us get through the isolation period and will help us have good memories of this difficult time. 


This is Rosie enjoying a belly rub in the warm sunlight.
This will be part of an on-line show centered on the Covid 19 pandemic with Dutch Art Gallery.
