Abby’s Elyssian Fields

Elysian Fields (or Elysium) n.  in Greek mythology, the final resting places of the souls of the heroic and the virtuous.

 

There are few words that come close to expressing how much it hurts saying goodbye to a four-legged family member. Abby the Weimaraner passed before her time. I was honoured when her owners commissioned me to immortalise her in paint.
