Pet Portrait Gallery
I believe a successful portrait is not just a copy or rendering of what the subject looks like, but it is also a lasting reflection of the subject's character and personality (whether human or animal). For the artist, this requires getting to know the subject in a very profound way, and I love getting to know animals, and discovering their personalities. I know for many people animals don't have much in the way of personalities but I have always been able to discern a great deal of character in animals. I enjoy finding ways to make my paintings reflect their characters. I really enjoy the challenge of painting aminal personalities in a way that is recognizable to humans.
