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 😊

These portraits are painted on DaVinci Pro Panels – strong wood panels crafted from fine-grained Birch wood for long-term warp resistance and a fantastic archival painting surface. They are gesso-primed, painted with professional acrylic paints, then finished with a beautiful gloss varnish for protection, beauty and longevity.
