Why paint a landscape, or a still life when you can paint something you love?
You may love a fetching landscape, but when it comes to fetching, what better than a dog.?
(You can teach a cat to fetch but trust me, it pisses them off.)
Does a landscape adore you? Follow you around? Sleep with you?
Better yet, when it comes to a portrait of your pet, no one will say
"There's something wrong with the mouth".
I remember every cat or dog that I've had in my life, but never hung their picture on the wall, even if I had one.
I recently repainted my beloved Bo, and find it a comforting, rather than an upsetting reminder.
