"Another Spring" (portrait of Newby Day and Pip; Charlottesville, Virginia. April 2013

This is a portrait of one of my dearest, longtime friends....Newby Day....and her daughter Marcy's Norfolk terrier puppy.

As Newby recently reminded me, I've been visiting and staying at their house since I was 25....more than half of my life.

I hope this captures how lovely it all is.  There's always hoping, isn't there?....I can always try again, I suppose.
