I've very much enjoyed scrolling down and surfing through this community and looking at all the wonderful photos! I am actually posting to see if anyone would be interested in a custom pet portrait. I can do any size you like, and prices range from $75 and up, depending on size and time spent. I use a combination of Rembrandt, Schminke, and Winsdor & Newton pastels on Pastelbord (basically a board coated with a sanded material that gives AWESOME results).
Here is an example of a past portrait, of a bulldog name Zimmer :)
