Quotes from Misty Copeland:
"It's time to write your story...

"I try to approach every opportunity on stage as if it's my first and my last."

"...accept everything about me that is different. That is what makes me special."

You can dream big, it doesn't matter what you look like, where you come from."

This is DOC, the dog i painted with love for Southeastern Guide Dogs. I was fortunate to be one of 50 artist chosen to paint a dog. Doctors Hospital of Sarasota asked me to be their artist. I was honored to be chosen. He has a page on Facebook also. He is on display in the lobby of the hospital. If you are in the area, go over and take a photo with him. I would love for you to vote for my dog. Each vote only cost 1.00. Doc has prayers and blessings written all over his body before I began painting. I wanted to have the DNA of as many people as possible all over his body, so he can be a blessing to others at the Hospital and for the final recipient of a wonderful helper. The dogs are proved for no charge and Southeastern Guide Dogs receive 100% if the proceeds for the vote.  Thank you so much.

DOC was on his way to his big coming out party last Wednesday. He was excited!!
