In the springtime, when we started to quarantine and social distance, I decided it would be a fantastic idea to support artists. I have been planning to decorate my new bedroom but put it off in the winter time because I was focused on school work. I started finding things that I wanted to buy on Esty. I found this beautiful artist from France, named Morgane, I instantly knew I wanted a portrait of my Chihuahua and me. I absolutely love the work Morgane did, that I requested another portrait. I found a photo of myself from 2010, wearing a lovely outfit that I was never able to wear out for a special occasion or even a date night. I already have a wishlist of other artworks that I wish Morgane to create for me this fall.
