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

This is a portrait of one of my dearest, longtime friends, Newby Day, and her daughter Marcy's new Norfolk terrier puppy.  I've stayed at their old house many,many, months since I first went there as a 24 year old.....more than half of my life, as Newby recently reminded me.

 I hope the picture's as lovely as Newby and Marcy are....we can always hope, can't we?
