Okay, this is something I learned about today. Visit Petcasso.com to see some of the most amazing pet portraits ever. Holy moly!!
While at lunch today a colleague told me about a mutual friend who had commissioned a portrait of his kitties from the artist- so I had to go visit. Now I know there are is a small cottage industry out there of pet portraiture, but this is in a whole 'nuther league. How perfectly delightful!! Check out the portrait of the chinese crested.
Petcasso is the business of Manhattan based artist Luis Ramos. He takes photos of your furry friend and captures him/her in the style of the old masters, in oil on canvas. Take a look at the gallery, all the portraits are wonderful.
Sigh. I'll bet Arthur J. would look delightful in oil, eh?
