Here is Charlie the cocker almost done.
She wrapped up a box of candy from TJ Maxx as though it were the gift for her diabetic brother-in-law and then gave him the painting of his dog. This pet portrait painting was a Christmas gift.
Dropping our boy at school each day, I often see Ann with her gorgeous Great Dane. I walk Rex, our McNabb. Finally one day we stopped to chat. read more…
Almost done. I want one more photo of this pooch so I can look at the color of his eyes. Isn’t he pretty? The owner says he’s like a super model; big and pretty but not too smart. What? I’m quoting. I have nothing against super models.
I believe this was my first pet portrait. This is my sister Erin’s cat. She’s still with us and has never adjusted to her housemate, Pearl the pug. Agnes has always been a one woman cat.
I can see a big difference in this painting from how I work now. This painting is very lean without a lot of layering. I work in acrylics now and find it more challenging to get a rich black.
Acrylics invite layering.

A dear friend arranged for Shannon to do a painting of my dog for my birthday and it’s the best gift ever. Shannon’s artistry is absolutely captivating. I don’t know how she managed to capture the heart and soul of my dog but she did. A friend who knows my dog was so impressed by the likeness that she had Shannon do portraits of her two dogs and loves them.Robin Marks
Shannon captured the soul of our sweet Daisy. The eyes say it all! She is displayed with prominence where we get to see her adorable face everyday. Shannon was wonderful to work with. Her professionalism, timeliness and above all, her ability to capture the both the inner and outer likeness of our pet, exceeded our expectations. We will definitely ask her to complete portraits of our other pets.Kris Allen
