Pet Portraits- Ozzy

I somewhat recently started  pet portraits for friends who either lost their fur babies or just REALLY wanted portraits done.  

My friend had a kitty that had a lot of health problems his whole life but she gave him the best life imaginable.  He was a lucky guy!  Unfortunately he ended up losing his fight with cancer and she was/is devastated. She kept asking how she was going to get through the day without being able to look into his eyes and talk to him.  I decided I wanted to do something nice and give a little piece of him back to her and draw a portrait for her, so she can still look into those beautiful eyes and talk to him whenever she wants.  

Here is the photo and the drawing I did using colored pencils:
sorry for the terrible cell phone pic!

I created the look of a painting by pressing REALLY hard and blending over top.

The best part....She LOVES it!  <3


  1. That was so sweet of you to do!! It is gorgeous!

  2. Oh, Julie, this really is beautiful- the artwork and the gift! ♥ I am an animal person, and this touches my heart- such a wonderful keepsake. Thank you so much for sharing this at Treasure Box Tuesday!
