Custom Pet Portraits!! #Giveaway #Petacular

For a little change this week, instead of a product for pets, we're featuring a product for pet lovers! How many of you have ever wanted a really nice picture of your pet(s) you could display in your home? I have a couple pictures of my dog, but nothing very fancy or unique. However, PI Of Products discovered an incredible way to display your pet...a pet portrait! Check this out...

Hello Agents!

Today, I have a truly "Petacular" product that I have been investigating.  So, grab your magnifying glass and a folder and let's get started investigating...

  All you have to do to get started is send Melissa a picture of your pet, and preference on background color.  If you're not sure, ask Melissa and she'll tell you what she thinks would look best.  We asked her and she thought Green would go well.

This is the photo we sent!

We have six dogs so it was pretty hard to choose just one, but I decided on Lady Grace (one of my mom's Shelties).  Now, I was going to save it as a gift for my mom, but after receiving the first "update" I decided to tell her.  She really enjoyed watching the painting come to life (Melissa posts the pictures of her current projects on her blog and social media).  

The First picture of her progress.  

A little bit of information about the Pet Painter... "It all started with a department store shopping trip in 2005 where I laughed out loud after spotting a framed poster of “Major General Woof” by Massy and said to my husband, “I could paint something like that of Dacs!”, speaking of our Chihuahua mix we had just rescued at the pound. So I did! I have found that being a pet portrait artist is my true life passion, especially capturing candid moments in time, in a cherished pet’s life.

“Our pets give us unconditional love and I am proud to have found a way to honor and commemorate them. The bond between pet and owner and the profound love people have for their pets truly inspires me, and there is nothing that gives me greater joy than my client’s reactions to their completed painting!"

The second update - eyes, nose and mouth. 

Another plus to ordering a portrait of your pet is that you can help make a difference for a less fortunate pet.  10% of your order goes to a pet rescue organization of your choice!

Wow!  It's coming along really nicely!
Melissa does very detailed work. Just look at the finished picture!  Everyone we showed it to, could tell which dog it was, and thought it was really neat. 

And... it's done!  We LOVE it!
So, if you (or someone in your life) has a pet, head on over to the Melissa Smith Art website, and start your order!  You can also Like them on Facebookand Follow them on Twitter to stay up to date with their latest news and paintings.
