Dog-on Good Art

For years my husband and I have debated who I love more, my dogs or him. I have presented argument after argument on how much I love my husband, trying to stack in favor of my husband over the dogs. But I fear that the answer to the long debated argument has come to an end recently.

In my living room hangs—not a portrait of my beloved husband—but a portrait of my first true love, my dog Spanky. So okay, I finally admit YES I love my dogs more than my husband. Luckily, my husband doesn't read my blog but if he does he can take a little comfort in the fact that he got me the perfect gift.

The commissioned painting of Spanky was painted by an artist named Seann Vicente. You can find her work at www.studiosrv.com. I had seen her work on Etsy and fell in love with her colorful pet portraits.
For my birthday, my husband commissioned a painting. Basically all he had to do was contact her and send a picture of the animal...a little while later we recieved the artwork in the mail. Speaking from experience, this is one of the best presents you could possibly get a pet lover. I am not an art critic or writer so I think it best to let her work speak for itself.

Below is the original photo and a snapshot of the painting:
