Artist, Betty Burchfield: "Sleep Little Babies"

From Ascribing Artist, Betty Burchfield:

This painting is taken from the photo below. What a memory to capture! This is my granddaughter, Josee, and golden retriever puppy, "Lucky".

This little one, Josee, was on a pallet on the floor taking a nap. "Lucky" was wide awake and I was hesitant to put the puppy beside Josee. When I put him down nex to her, that little puppy just snuggled right in and went to sleep.

Just one of those special memories that says to me...."I must make a painting of this." That is why I like to paint using someone's favorite photo. I can capture the picture in oils that will last forever.

Josee is now four years old and is "Grandmother Goose's" model for other paintings.

God is so good to give me the talent of being an artist. My reward is making people happy. That is my gift back to Him.

Betty Burchfield, "Little Reb"
