This sweet pup passed away, and his family wanted to do something for their little girl to memorialize him. They decided that it should be fun and whimsical, so they asked me to create a colorful pop art pet portrait of Bear to hang in their daughter’s room.
I have just recently added the pop art pet portraits to my custom portrait styles, so this was a new request for me. But after giving it some thought, I realized what a perfect application this is of the pop art portrait style! What better way to give a child a memorial of their pet than a happy, bright, fun portrait? It makes the memory of their sweet friend joyous and lively, which is no doubt just the way their relationship had always been together. After all, pets are amazing playmates and best friends for kids!!!
When my own kids saw me painting this portrait, they told me it made Bear look like a super hero dog. Perfect 😊
Just a quick announcement for my customers and fans… get ready for some fun pet portraits coming your way! I am adding a new style of pet portrait to my repertoire. Pop art pet portraits!
Stay tuned! The listing will be added to my Etsy shop in the next month or so. In the meantime, if you are interested in having a pop art portrait painted of your dog, cat, horse, guinnea pig (you name it!) please contact me.
I was thrilled to have VoyagePhoenix reach out to me for an interview for their Local Stories section. They asked about my history and what led me to where I am in my artistic career, as well as about my art and about my advice for budding artists.
VoyagePhoenix goes in-depth about the entire Phoenix area, from movers and shakers of the area, to night life in the city, to where to find the best food.
