Man's best friend
Last week, Toda's health and age reached a point where he had to put her down. I don't care how tough you think you are, but putting down a family pet is one of the hardest things you'll ever have to do.
Arianna Johnson from the Wood Buffalo Food Bank reached out to me the other day to see if I could do a painting of Pete and Toda. On so many occasions and in so many ways, Pete, through his role as a morning radio personality, has helped the Food Bank. Arianna wanted a way to offer something back.
This is how this special portrait came together.
I hope this special keepsake helps kindle great memories. It is imbued with gratitude and affection from Arianna, the team at the Wood Buffalo Food Bank, and from me.
