“Heart and Soul” is a pastel pencil sketch pet portrait. I was commissioned to create this as a gift for a special employee who recently retired. These are two of her pets. As they are her heart and soul, I felt this woman was also a large part of the heart and soul of the place she dedicated so many years to.
