The Adorable Taffy Dora, in memoriam ©2019 (Wash & Pencil, 31 x 44 cm.)
Although Fifi Smith has had many pets in her lifetime, one little dog stands fondly above the rest.
During a period in the 1990s when a lot was going on in all areas of Fifi’s life, Taffy Dora was the constant.
During a period of turmoil and upheaval, the significance of that beautiful little soul’s love and companionship was not lost on Fifi.
The original portrait sketch was based on one of Fifi’s few extant photos of Taffy Dora from that period.
In Fifi’s words, the portrait not only captured a likeness but also brought a most cherished friend back to life!
“…I sit here with tears of gratitude spilling over… and all I can say is OUTSTANDING!“ – Fifi Smith
