I’ll be honest. I always thought pet portraits were a little hokey, but lately I’ve been really moved by the love people have for their pets. Living in a small studio apartment, I unfortunately do not have the luxury of having a dog of my own (and ten minutes in a room with a cat could kill me–allergies)…but that doesn’t stop me from paying tribute to others’.
Here are three paintings, in very different styles, of my sister and brother-in-law’s three dogs…and a sketch of Andy Cohen with his dog Wacha, because I am a little bit in love with him. (Wacha, that is. I have a soft spot for troublemaking beagles.)
