Today I wanted to share a story about a chance meeting with a guy’s father, who I met in STAPLES, who knew how much his son and daughter-in-law loved their pets. As a result of him taking my business card and giving it to his son. A very lucky wife woke up on Christmas Day to find a fine art 12 x 12 oil painting of her beloved yellow lab under the Christmas tree. Her husband had commissioned me to do this painting along with 3 others (another dog and 2 cats) so that he could surprise her. He knew how much she loved theses beautiful animals and wanted to give her something that would last for years to come. How romantic I kept thinking as we put together the plan. I just love it when I see a man go way out of his way to put together an elaborate plan to surprise his wife and do something that he knows will really make her happy. What an incredible way to show how much you love someone. Pet Portraits fill up your senses in so many ways when you look at them. A certain look reminds us of a particular moment that we shared with them. “Happy for No Reason” does just that. If you have spent time with a Lab you know this look. They are the sweetest dogs and have an incredible happy spirit. This painting is SOLD but if you would like a Giclee (high quality print version on canvas or paper) I will have them available early 2013 and taking orders now. Please just contact me. The sizes will vary from 6″ x 6″ to the largest version 36″ x 36″.
