Allow me to introduce you to Craig.
Once a pet is welcomed into your home, he becomes a beloved part of the family. So when Craig’s family lost him too soon to health issues, they were understandably heartbroken. A thoughtful friend of theirs commissioned me to draw him, as a gift of remembrance.
I never really set out to be a pet portrait artist, but the puppies just seem to come my way. At least a couple times a year I’m asked to draw or paint a family’s “fur-baby.” I do enjoy capturing their soulful eyes and quirky bits of their personalities.
Most of all, I’m glad to give Craig’s family a small part of their friend back for keeps.
