    Default Connie Swanson NAILED IT!

    This was what my wife said when she first saw this portrait of Blue.
    Connie does this for winners of the Canadian National Open & National Am.
    These pictures don't come close to doing the oil painting justice, but its the best I can do right now.
    Thanks so much Connie.
