A pet portrait is an easy and simple way a dog owner can commemorate their furry companion. From dogs, to cats, to even birds, a pet portrait can be made for virtually any pet. With pets leaving a special place in their owners hearts it only makes sense for these amazing creatures to have a designated space within the house to be celebrated. Houses are often a place where people express who they are through their unique sense of style and personal touches. Making a pet portrait as one of these personal touches can be a huge hit and a great conversation starter for talking about your beloved pets. With today’s world of self isolation and quarantine it is still possible to get a portrait made without ever having somebody come into your home. With contactless services provided by some online services, portraits can be made by submitting photos of the subject and working with a digital designer to figure out how the composition will turn out. Once the digital mark up is created, it is sent to an artist of choice where they take the photo and create a hand painted replica adding depth, detail, and their own unique stylistic approach. Below are 3 reasons to get a pet portrait for your beloved animal.
Every family has heard stories of their grandparents’ beloved pet that was the smartest, most joyus, or most heroic pet. While these stories are amazing to hear second hand, many of these stories do not have a picture to accompany them. Having a pet portrait created of your pet allows you to keep the spirit of your pet alive long after their time on earth. You can tell stories of the journeys you and your pet embarked on and have a physical representation of them. Imagine being able to talk about your pet and look at a hand painted piece of art while you told the story. In this way the pet portrait can become a family heirloom passed down from generation to generation. In addition to being personally attached to a piece of artwork, pet portraits that are hand made are one of a kind. No two pet portraits will look the same as they are handmade and tailor made to look exactly like the pet. Creating a pet portrait is so much more than getting a picture printed as there is real effort, time, and love put into a painting.
