So, there is this lady, this artist, named Lesli Devito. 
I started reading her blog months and months ago because it made me so happy.
She used these fun yet calming colors in her rooms, colors that, if I were brave, would use myself.

Gorgeous right?
Yep, if  I was brave, I would paint my house and decorate with these fun colors too.
She's gifted, I tell ya.

Then one day I realized that not only is she a gifted decorator, but she is a real life artist and the most
amazing painter.
Check out some of her work:

{and it's not limited to pets!}

This girl bleeds talent I am pretty sure.

Back in November, Lesli emailed me wondering if she could have my address so she could send me a Christmas card.
So, I gave it to her and forgot about it.

Several weeks later I came home to find a package on my doorstep.
I opened it up and cried.
Cried like a baby for a good 45 minutes,
then I cried some more.

Sneaky gal that she is, wasn't needing my address for a Christmas card, she had painted a picture of our beloved Harley that disappeared in August. 
She found the photo on my blog and painted it from there.

I cannot tell you how much this looks like Harley. My husband honestly had a hard time even looking at it because it is so dead on. 
My daughters friends said that the woman who painted this surely has Harley because it looks so much like him!

It was one of the sweetest gestures ever, and I will treasure my painting forever.

Well, now it's your turn.
Lesli has graciously offered a custom pet portrait for a my sweet savannah reader!
She is giving away a 16 x 16 painting valued at $390.00.

Not only does she paint dogs, but any animal.
Horses, chickens, pigs, cats, you name it, she can paint it.
