Custom Pet Portraits by Pawblo Picasso
If you’re an animal lover or know someone who is, you’re aware of how strong our attachments to pets can be. If you’re shopping for your pet or for a person with a beloved pet, you’re shopping for two. Why not let CustomMade help you meet that challenge? Custom pet accessories that have been tailored to the idiosyncrasies of animal companions can make them very comfortable and their owners very happy. Here’s another unique gift idea to consider: a work of art that captures the unique personality of your little friends. Melissa King of Pawblo Picasso can paint custom portraits in acrylics of your treasured dogs, cats, and, yes, reptiles from your photographs.
There is no better endorsement of an artist’s talent than having someone seek her out and commission more works after having received a moving piece as a gift. Here is such a recommendation:
I received a painting of my maltipoo as a gift from a client. I was so touched by the thoughtful gift that I ordered 3 paintings for Christmas gifts. Melissa not only does outstanding work, but she is able to capture your pet’s personality in the painting. I promise that giving a gift like this will be the best gift you ever give and might even bring the recipient to tears!
In her home and studio in the Boston neighborhood of Allston, Melissa brings together her love of animals and her artistic talents. Her CustomMade portfolio is filled with portraits of quirky, soulful, playful, and thoughtful creatures in a style greatly influenced by Pawblo Picasso. (Never heard of him?) To help you envision your pet in a work of art, take a closer look at some of Melissa’s paintings.
Not Spuds MacKenzie, but still a party animal: “Harry.”
Animals have bonds of friendship with each other, too, and Melissa can also convey those relationships, as in this double portrait, “Mia and Negrita.”
What is that cat thinking? You may never know, but the eyes of “Smokey” will be forever filled with mysteries.
A posture, the position of the ears, a glance, “Lucifer” captures a whole being with emotional depths like any person.
