Painting of the Week – August 12, by's very own Danbury Editor

This is Clara, a soulful, loving dog, who lived in Baltimore, MD. Caroline, her human mom, commissioned award-winning artist and Danbury resident, Shelley Lowell, who happens to be our Danbury HamletHub editor, to create Clara's painting as the dog was fighting Cancer at that time. A year later, after Clara's passing, Caroline called Shelley to tell her how grateful she was to have a portrait of her beloved dog to remember her by. For Shelley, it was an honor to have had the opportunity to meet Clara and paint her portrait.

Ms. Lowell specializes in painting animal portraits on a commissioned basis for pet lovers throughout the US and Europe. Her works make treasured gifts. Interested? Contact Shelley Lowell at 203-730-0664 or To see more of her animal paintings, click here.
