This one was so fun to paint! Dang- those eyes- I'm enjoying just looking at it sitting here in front of me- that Ruby must have been an incredible creature! Her owner has this to say about Ruby~
"I lost my heart to Ruby Dee the moment I met her, but over the years it became clear we may have just been the same person in 2 different bodies.Every pet is unique and beloved in so many ways, but in a lifetime one or two come along that are so perfectly fitted to be yours it seems like proof of a benevolent universe. Ruby Dee greeted each morning with a pure joy that inspired me."
