A couple months ago, a lovely artist and friend of Cute named Gretzky reached out and offered to paint Pimp and Moo for me! She does custom pet portraits (and a bunch of other things as well, but we're biased toward pets here, of course!).
Since I love my boys so much and I can't think of any better art in the whole wide world than them, I immediately said, "Yes, please!" (I may have jumped up and down as well. I was a little excited.)
We worked together to get the perfect photos to go from, and a few weeks later, I these arrived at my doorstep...
|Moo and Pimp... in paint!|
Seriously, though, let's look at Moo's portrait closer. I love them both, believe me, but this one of Moo is just stunning. He is such a goofball and she managed to capture him just right. His eyes are playful, his head is tilted -- it's exactly him!
If you want to know more about her custom pet portraits and other stuff, check out her site, paintingsbygretzky.com or like her on Paintings by Gretzky on Facebook. Her cats and her dogs also have Facebook pages where she holds contests and things.
And... some more fun: She put Pimp and Moo on some products to sell. (Just to be clear: I don't get any money from the sale of these and I'm not getting any money to talk about her here -- just the paintings.) I think my favorite is the Pimp and Moo Mug, but the Moo the Cat hat is also particularly silly!
Also, if you're interested, you can get pricing for her custom pet portraits here.
So what do you think? Are the boys good art subjects?
