Left, Rory, right, Shannon
It just makes my heart sing to see them together!
You can see Laake's pet and other portraits on her Flickr page.
I am hoping to work with Laake on images for a music video, other ventures. The richness of the colors, the individualism and genuine nature of her paintings are just what I need for these, and having her back in my life is a real joy.
I highly recommend her work for book covers, book trailers, other uses. You can contact her at monkeeboymom (at) att (dot) net. She's quite reasonable in price.
