My First Pet Portrait
My good friend Kim has a portrait that she made for each of her pets (and she has many). They all hang together in her kitchen above the dining table. For years, I have gazed up at them and admired them; not just for their craftsmanship and variety of technique, but also because I love the idea of honoring your pets in that way. They are family after all, right? I only have one pet: my part french bulldog, part boston terrier, part pig, part bat, part alien (named Luna). She is so close and dear to my heart that I decided to do a portrait of her, and I love the way it came out!
