Our daughter does one portrait of our bunny, Coco, every year and we hang them in our Pet Gallery. It is such a happy place to visit.
If you have a pet, I encourage a Pet Gallery, too. These paintings are truly family treasures. I smile every time I see these. We love how these paintings reflect both Coco's likeness, as well as our daughter's inner life!
Our three children are in the middle of a two week school holiday. It's the perfect week to put our easels up. Our daughter is painting a third Coco portrait and I am helping one of our sons begin a portrait of a favorite toy and our other son to do a portrait of a favorite stuffed animal. We're working with grids and I'll share our progress in a later posting.
Canvas, paints and pet! (or toy or stuffed animal could work, too)
Set up a painting area and start painting!
I hope that you have the chance to make the same!
