FOR THE LOVE OF A PET – CUSTOM PET PORTRAITS 2015

I love animals. ALL ANIMALS.

CHARLIE AND BEAN

And painting them brings me an enormous amount of satisfaction and joy.  I am honored when you share your animals with me.Our pets hold the keys to our hearts. ALL they want…is for US to let THEM Love us. Thats it!

TATE AND FELIX

And Love us they do.

         I have included with each of these portraits,  one of the inspiration photos, in some cases two when I could not decide. These photos do not necessarily lend themselves to a “Portrait” (ALTHOUGH I would LOVE to start painting more abstract paintings, dogs leaping through the air, curled up asleep, carrying a giant stick)… in addition to my non traditional/traditional portraits of pets so let me know if you are interested! …but the photos you select, the ones that speak to you…and capture your pet….give me a HUGE peek into your pet’s personality and as I paint i look at them and I get to know them, their soft fur and sad eyes, droopy mouths, floppy and pointy ears.I truly am a tad sad when I finish and have to take the photos down. I miss them.

HERE THEY ARE

It always feels a little like Santa’s workshop when I am painting all of the pets for Christmas. Paintings are everywhere…!

FROM THE BOOK “DOG HEAVEN”

“When Dogs go to heaven, They don’t need wings because God knows that dogs love running best…

He Gives them fields. Fields and fields and fields.

When a dog first arrives in Heaven, he just runs. ”

    1. I appreciate the compliment, especially from a fellow animal lover and artist, but each painting was pulled from a different photo which is the pose you see in the portrait. I am not sure I could even just conjure up face that accurate any other way. My other work takes way more liberties. But Thank you!
