Dog Days of Summer ~ Commissioned Pet Paintings ~ GIVEAWAY!


It's time to bring the Dog Days of Summer event to a close and we're going to end it with a giveaway unlike any other!  Sharon Lamb is the artist behind Commissioned Pet Paintings.  I haven't seen her paintings in person yet (I say yet because Sharon is sending me a sample of her work by painting a small portrait of my Olive!) but from what I've seen online she does phenomenal work!  Some of the paintings are so good that they look like a photograph instead of a painting.  The attention to detail, colors, expressions...it's all captured.  Visit her Etsy Shop and look at the eyes on the paintings she has posted.  The eyes are amazing.  They're so captivating.

The type of talent Sharon has is not one that can be taught.  She has a natural talent and passion for painting and it shows in her art.  She has been a pleasure to work with and I'm so glad she agreed to be the featured sponsor for Dog Days of Summer.

Sharon has very generously and kindly offered to paint a portrait of one lucky reader's pet. The winner will have the choice of an 8x10, 9x12 or 10x10 with a retail value of approx. $95!

Lets get this show on the road!  Who wants to WIN???

I'm not sure if it's viable or not but I've always wanted a portrait of the dogs I had growing up. There's 3, a Maltese, a Corgi mix and a Tibetan Spanial. But for this prize I'd love a painting of my recently passed Maltese.

Both of my friend's dogs are huskies (except one of them is 1/4 German shepherd). I don't know which one I'd choose for a portrait since they're both so cute~ I'd let my friend choose.

I would love to have a portrait done of our two cats. Our male, Nimbly-Bimbly was a stray that we rescued. Our female, Layla, was a rescue from the Humane Society. She is a black cat, and more black cats are put to sleep than any other animal.

My in-laws are heartbroken over the death of their cat this week. Her name was Ashes and that is who I'd do the portrait of - for them.

Lauren E said...

Wow! Those portraits are absolutely incredible! I would be thrilled to hang a portrait of my Bull Terrier, Tazz. He's a rescue boy and will be turning 8 on October 26. We'll also be celebrating our 2-year adoption anniversary on October 30.
