The sweet little house portrait I painted for my friend’s sister was delivered last week.
She loved it and ordered portraits of her beloved pets, a sweet hamster and two dogs.
She is creating a wall of art in her home and was excited that I was willing to paint an unusual pet, not just the dogs. She wanted the other family members, her pets, to have a space on her wall of art.
I understand, I have an unusual pet, myself. They are family, and we do want to include them in what we do!
I was also excited that the sizes she ordered were larger than what I offer on my Etsy site. The larger sizes demand more time, more effort, and greater detail. I learn so much with each project! I loved the challenge of fur and whiskers and the types of texture each of the animal’s hair was. Silly, but, it was exciting to me.
I am sure there will be limits that I will encounter, but I love that so far I have been able to paint what was asked and the recipient was pleased. Very excited to have 3 pieces of art in one home! Feels like a gallery!
Whatever you work on this week, I hope it is challenging, rewarding and exciting for you!
