    Default Had an artist paint my picture of Tess and Charlie

    A local artist did a pastel and pencil sketch of my picture of Tess and Charlie. Would love to know what you think

    Hi, I think it's really lovely! I would love to do the same with my Belle and Bobby.

    Although I think the expressions are slightly different from the original picture, which is interesting.

    Are you going to frame it? It's a nice keepsake.

    So beautiful! I love it! I have a painting of my dogs in my living room, it's my favorite picture by far.

    Yes, I know her. She sketches it totally freehand which explains the difference in expressions. I cannot link to her site for fear of spamming. It took her 10 days and cost me 180. The size is 20" x 24"

    I really want Chamberlain's and Sasha's picture painted. I think this summer we are going to hire a photographer and have "family pictures" taken! haha Our dogs are our children for time being!
