In the last week I lost my beautiful best feathered friend Pablo to illness, and too young at just 9 years old. He was my buddy, my inspiration, my muse to so many paintings. Ever thankful to the universe for 9 beautiful years of friendship, company, laughter and inspiration. I literally will never forget his friendship, he was (is) such a special little soul. He was with me every moment possible… the most beautiful thing about animals is that they can be right by your side and amazing company, and yet allow you to have your own space and never feel alone. We shared lots of laughter and fun and unconditional love.
Those who are close to me know that he was like an extension of my heart. He was my family and part of me. I was very blessed to have him and am convinced that beautiful animals like Pablo are little angels sent to us to bring light into our lives when we need it most. He was a little angel that came into my life at a very difficult time 9 years ago and has comforted me through so many tough times since. I will remember the endless times he would see me upset and ask ‘what’s wrong’ and give me a kiss on the cheek and say ‘don’t cry’… He seemed to understand so much, it wasn’t possible for him not to warm my heart. He had a beautiful healing soul, and personality that made me (and my family) giggle and laugh so many times. I will miss his ‘good morning’ and ‘good nights’ and helping me choose what to wear every morning saying ‘what am I going to wear’ and ‘which one’. I will miss him complimenting me as I put on makeup saying ‘aww pretty’. 🙂 I will miss him singing Opera with my sister , twinkle twinkle little star, and seeing him dance to RnB. I will miss seeing him get excited to see and play with his buddy Bruni. I will miss all his inspiration in my art and complimenting the ‘pretty colours’, though his inspiration will persist. I will miss his endless company, playing peekaboos, and our funny dialogues.
I will remember one of the last things I asked him “who loves Pablo?’ to which he responded as always, “Leni does”. Always will… <3 Broke my heart to see a beautiful and loving soul so unwell, and I hope he is now in peace.
Thank you to the universe for sending me an absolute treasure to help me get through some of the toughest times in my life, awaken my inner child and bring me love, warmth and laughter. <3 Animals are, and always will be an absolute blessing. This one will always be a special part of my memories, heart and soul, and is absolutely irreplaceable to me.
Here are just a few of the many paintings he inspired (there are so so many more).
