When I lost my precious Luke, I went into a major funk. He was my painting buddy, my muse and we were together constantly. I found a little book, "Rescuing Sprite" by Mark Levin. I read it in a day, cried the whole time, and came out the other end ready to go on again. Don't know why it was such a cleansing experience, but it really made a difference for me.
The cover photo of Sprite is the topic of my dog painting today. I will try to find a way to send it to Mr Levin in appreciation for the book.
