Fridays Just went Furry!
My dog and I are super-happy to present my Pen and Ink Portraits Gallery and a Furry New Website to our readers.
Dear Friends, I welcome you to the new space 🙂
Pen and Ink Portraits of Two Handsome Dogs:
Here are a couple of Pen and Ink pet portraits that I did recently. View more at my Pet Portrait Art Gallery.
The English Mastiff (The Gentle Giant)
The English Mastiff is one of the largest dog-breeds in the world. They are tall and big and heavy, but they have the sweetest temperament of all. They were bred to be guard-dogs, but they love to spend time indoors with other family members. I’ve written a detailed post on mastiffs to accompany the portrait. Read the post and see the portrait closer up here.
The Cairn Terrier
The Cairn Terrier is, of course, a terrier; and that makes him an earth-dog – a vermin-hunter par excellence. He like his other terrier cousins, was bred to hunt foxes and other small animals including rats; but the Cairn Terrier of today is a family dog. Read more about him and view his portrait in more detail here.
What made me grow fur?
Actually, I’ve always been furry close…I mean very close to dogs and cats. It is said that people are either cat persons or dog persons, but not both. Well, I am both…and more. I love dogs and cats with equal intensity…and every once in a while I experience a crush on a mouse, a lizard, a chameleon, a squirrel…the list is long. I guess I am an animal lover, because that makes me real cozy furry!
This Furry Artist is Open to Pet Portrait Commissions now 🙂
Now that I’ve gone furry, I am taking Pet Portrait Commissions. If you are interested in hiring me to draw the portrait of your furry son or daughter, and you don’t mind my falling in love with him or her, contact me here 🙂
