Turning your favorite photo of a pet into a painting provides a unique and thoughtful way to pay lasting tribute to him or her. Today, you can find a number of artists – both online and in your area – who can create amazing portraits from a photo. There are a number of styles out there, from the serious to the whimsical; find one that suits your pet’s personality, and you’ll have a work of art that you can treasure forever.
“People notice it and it gives you new opportunities to share your pet with others and talk about fun stories from the past,” says Rebecca Collins, the artist behind the website ArtPaw.com, which offers custom pet portraits. “It’s perfectly normal to honor and celebrate our love for our animals in any way that feels right to us.”
