I have three great danes, a cat, 10 chickens and a rooster. I volunteer at a raptor and bird rehabilitation and education center every week. I paint animals almost exclusively. There are paw prints in my concrete studio floor. Obviously, I should offer pet photography (I do offer animal painting commissions as well)
And I do!
I LOVE your pets. All the pets. Including lizards, rats, snakes, horses, goats, chickens, even tarantulas...no pet is off limits.
Our pets are family we choose and they don't get to be with us long. Having portraits of them is fun art while they're with us and a comforting memory after they leave.
