Past lives and pet portraits.

Some time in early 1998, I had a brief stint as a pet portraitist for charity. People would send me their pet photos, I’d paint them and the owners would receive the original work as well as a set of matching printed note cards in exchange for donating to a worthy cause. Then school started taking up more of my time and I fell out of touch with the people I’d been working with. It’s not something I’ve really followed up on since then, but I’ve been thinking about it lately because of my recent crafting renaissance. My skills have also improved a bit, thanks to various art classes taken during my time at design school. Perhaps this is something I might come back to this summer. I’ve got a couple of furloafs that are quite willing to pose for their portraits in exchange for a prolonged belly rub, after all.

A few selections from the portraits I did back then, because I don’t think it’s anything I’ve really ever mentioned before…
