Watercolor Pet Portraiture by Rachael Rossman

Wondering what to get the pet lover who has everything this holiday? How about a commissioned portrait of a beloved pet that will be cherished forever.

Artist, Rachael Rossman creates the most beautiful watercolor portraits of your pet – paying careful attention to capturing their personality. Rachael painted a portrait of our dog Flo using a watercolor and marker technique on photo paper that gives the painting a beautiful fluid feeling. The colors are vibrant and saturated.

Her commission prices start at $75 for a 5 x 7 and go up depending on size. She says it’s taking about 8 weeks from the time you order to completion, so plan a head if you want to gift one of these masterpieces for the holidays. Past portrait clients of Rossman include Martha Stewart’s doggies Francesca and Sharkey. I know I’ll treasure my painting of Flo for the rest of my life and always have a memory of her sweet smiling face. Not to mention it looks so darn KEWL hanging above my fireplace.


Painter Nathan Janes offers a new line of Dog themed Pop Art lithos

With the recent record breaking sale ($842,250.00) of a John Emms oil painting “New Forest Foxhounds” dog portraiture and dog themed art are all the rage in the art world. The dog-art auction gauntlet was throw down back in 2005 with the then record setting sale ($590,400.00) of the low-brow classic ‘Dogs Playing Poker’. What is an avid dog-fanatic/art collector to do if they don’t have a spare half million to drop on works of collectible canine curio? Check out the iconic and bold works of pop artist Nathan Janes. Janes offers an excellent catalog of his most popular paintings available as canvas reprints ranging in price from $475-$675. If you fancy your pooch as the Edie Sedgwick to his Warhol – you can commission a Pop Arf portrait starting at $5000.00. That works out to a small price to pay for a pop art interpretation of your modelic mongrel muse.
