Painting brings people together! My 3rd grade teacher contacted me recently to commission a portrait of her grand puppy, Flo. She sent me more reference photos than anyone ever has, and it was very difficult to choose one because this dog is adorable. I chose the reference photo with the best shot of Flo’s eyes because she has really cool eyes that are different colors!
Now to address the elephant sized dog in the room. . . This blog is called pet painting a day, but I obviously haven’t been delivering. I’m trying, though, so be patient with me, and if you have any reference photos you would like to see painted on my blog, feel free to send ’em my way!
Here are the first 50 paintings all together. (I’ve actually done 52, but 2 of them are surprises for the people receiving them, so I’ll post them later.)
I just want to thank everyone who has supported me so far in this painting challenge. It is a joy to paint all of these wonderful people and pets. The background stories really do help me bring out their personalities, so keep ’em coming!
I’m so lucky to be part of such a large and supportive family, and it’s been great getting to know all of the people I’ve met through this project.
My Etsy shop will be up soon with detailed pricing info and tips on how to choose a good reference photo!
Stay tuned for more!
