Artsy Fartsy Stuff - Mom's Paintings

Mom doesn't talk about it very often on here, but she does pet portraits. Thought we would share a few that were done over the past several months.

This beautiful girl is Ellie. She went to the Rainbow Bridge recently, and this portrait was done in her memory. Her brother Tucker is a studly Dane.
This is another memorial portrait.
This is Elvis.
And a Shih Tzu named Bess.
Yorkie.. These were specially made out of soda cans for an event.
Frenchie named Clementine. She is also at the Rainbow Bridge.
Senior Golden Retriever named Dusty...RIP dear furiend.
Finally..the young pup Rocky. He is a brand new member of our pal's family.

Sorry, the pictures aren't all that great. All of these are mini portraits, 4x5". Check out Mom's Etsy page for more info.

Note from Mom: It is truly a joy to paint beloved pets for people, particularly the memorial portraits. These may not hang in a gallery, but it is really rewarding to help capture the memory of a pet that is no longer with us.

We loves our Ellie painting and since she took terrible pictures being all tortie and black her painting is so much better then the photos we have. We think your Momma does great work and we plan to order more for my cousins. I knows my Aunt D would love them.
