If you’ve haven’t heard of the latest craze that all the dog owners (and pet owners in general) are raving about these days, then it’s time to jump on the bandwagon. No, it’s not the latest toy or a piece of smart technology to help you keep a watchful eye on your four-legged companion while you’re at work, it’s a paint portrait of your best friend! That’s right, dog owners are nowadays ordering paint portraits of their furry friends in order to encapsulate their unique personality and create a great focal point in their homes.
But that’s just the beginning, as there are many wonderful reasons why you would want to have such a unique artwork in your home. That’s why today we are taking a look at five great reasons why you should get a paint portrait of your dog and how it can benefit your life as a whole.
Show off your dog’s personality
Every dog owner knows that every dog is unique, and that every pooch comes with their own personality traits and unique quirks that we love seeing in those adorable pet videos on social media. So keep those coming. But in all seriousness, your dog truly is a unique soul and has a personality like no other pooch around, which is something you can easily depict on a painting. Given the fact that you can choose between a variety of themes, canvases, and backdrops, you can easily scale the setting to fit perfectly with the breed of your dog, and of course, its personality.
For example, you can go with a Victorian-era setting for your Yorkshire Terrier, or a contemporary royal family setting for your Welsh Corgi. Or how about a distinguished officer’s uniform for your German Shepherd, or a Canadian Mountie uniform for your St. Bernard? Oh, the possibilities are endless, you just have to let your imagination run free.
Create long-lasting memories
We like to think that we take a hundred photos of our pets a day because they fell asleep in a cute position or because they’re doing something adorable, but the underlying reason is much more meaningful than that. It’s because we want to freeze those moments in time and have something to remind us how wonderful and fulfilling that moment was, especially when our furry friends leave us for good.
In preparation for that inevitable moment, you can always make physical copies of any pic in your digital photo album, but your favorite and dearest one can become a prized painting that you’re going to put in a nice frame and place in a distinguished spot in your home. This is one of the best ways to honor the memory of your beloved pet and most importantly, it’s a beautiful way to keep their memory alive.
It’s an amazing conversation starter
Every home needs a unique statement piece, and what better way to create a focal point in the living room than to hang a portrait of your pet on a wall overlooking the entire room? With so many custom pet portraits and unique designs available online, you can easily create a portrait that will perfectly complement the décor and the theme of any room, or it can even act a beautiful contrast to really pop out from the rest of the setting.
When you have your friends and family over, you can bet that this portrait will be the first thing people mention, and when you’re having new people over for a house party, the portrait will serve as the main ice-breaker and will help you start a conversation with ease.
Tell a captivating story about your best friend
Pet portrait artists nowadays come in all shapes and sizes, and depending on the company or the artist you choose to make your dog’s portrait, you can really create some unique art. There are numerous ways you can tell a story that has never been told before, because after all, a picture is worth a thousand words. It can be a simple portrait of your furry friend, or it can be your dog in an interesting situation or a moment frozen in time as they’re sniffing through the forest, running around, or even snuggling with you.
Show the world how much you love your dog
In the end, you’re doing this to show the world just how much you love your best friend. The bond between the dog and their parent(s) is an unbreakable one, and instead of taking another picture, making a paint portrait of your lifelong companion would be a true testament to the unique connection that you share.
There is no denying the unique bond that dog owners share with their furry friends, so it’s not surprising that they’re always looking for new ways to encapsulate this bond in a unique and powerful way. Perhaps a paint portrait of your dog is just what you need to show the world just how much your pooch means to you.
