The main reason you have a portrait of your pet painted is to show love and pay tribute to your furry baby. They give you unconditional love and therefore hold a special place in your world especially when they are no longer by your side. A pet portrait is the best way to keep the memories of your beloved alive and with you. You will like being regularly reminded of their love with something you can gaze at every day.
Now capturing the dogs personality, that's another story. Some collectors of mine have said I have a way of capturing their spirit somehow. It is definitely a skill that is honed over the course of 14 years and over 400 portraits! I love hearing stories about the animals to get a feel for the portrait being fun, or playful, or more soulful. My brushstrokes vary and I definitely have a talk with spirit to help guide me before I begin each and every painting. Here's a recent quote from Nancie in Washington "Hi Meg, I received the portrait. I absolutely love it. You are so good! So happy you are in my life. You create from the heart and that stays forever. I look forward to keeping in touch with you."
