Princess Pepper

Said goodbye today to my sister's best friend, Pepper, who wasn't really a real princess, but who was always treated royally--especially during her final illness.

I just had this portrait of Pepper done by Melinda McPherson Golden as a Christmas present. I highly recommend Melinda. She takes new commissions all the time; I have purchased several works of art from her.


  1. Cheryl what a very touching, beautiful piece.
    Pepper certainly was a princess and obviously a dearly loved one.

    As a dog lover I am incredibly sad to hear she has passed on. Your tribute to her is lovely.

  2. Thank you, Kate. It is always a difficult decision, but you have to do the right thing for these important and beloved members of your family.
