For the Love of Dogs

I discovered the portrait of a playful border collie, and could hear him panting. What an amazing likeness! Introducing the heartwarming acrylic paintings of a mother and daughter team, LarkStudios, found on Artfire. This shop has an alphabet of dog breeds available, and if your favorite isn't listed, just ask. Their work is available as original paintings, prints, and very charming and affordable necklace pendants sure to please any pet lover.

Dottie is a prolific artist who has truly discovered her calling and specializes in painting dogs. Daughter Lara handles the business side of things, and paints when she can. Whether your beloved pet is a puppy, horse, or goat, you will be very pleased with a custom portrait that captures their likeness and your friendship for all time.

This fabulous team paints in Oregon, ships internationally, and is just starting on Facebook. You can view more of their amazing work and get instructions for custom orders on their website. There is just something about the way Dottie captures the eyes that really brings life into her painting.
