Connecting With Pet Portraits
I recently created this pet portrait of two special little dogs; ink and watercolor pencils were the mediums I used. I was unable to deliver the final artwork to the owner; my husband graciously did in my place. He called me soon after presenting the portrait; the owner was so overjoyed he actually cried(!) It turns out one of the pups had recently passed away. I was so glad to be able to create this special remembrance of his pets. They really do become part of the family, and we mourn their loss just as deeply.
