Springer Spaniel Portrait

This is a portrait of a beautiful tri-color Springer Spaniel named Cassidy. I donated a pet portrait to English Springer Rescue America (ESRA) for a fundraising auction, and Cassidy's parents were the winning bidders.

Kari,
We received our portrait of Cassidy this morning and it is even more magnificent in person.
Your talent is simply amazing.
I want to thank you for donating you talent to English Springer Rescue America.
The proceeds from the auction /dinner will help a lot of deserving Springers in need.
I hope my posting to our National list will benefit you with many more portraits.
I'm so glad I won the bid.We couldn't be happier.
With much appreciation,
Bill & Gay Sterling
