Pets, Their Portraits and Their Names

Lately I’ve been painting a lot of pet portraits in soft pastel. This is some of the most enjoyable commission work I’ve done. We love our pets! And judging by their expressions, our pets love us back.

And why not? Is anything too good for our faithful companions? No! We dress them, play with them, provide comfy beds (sometimes OUR beds) and prepare the best food available.

But before all that, we name them. It has been great fun learning all the names bestowed upon these furry friends and I thought I’d share them with you.

Sweet Pea                          Linus                     Guinness

Nutmeg                              Olive Oil                  Ziggy

Tink                                   Heidi

Bailey                                Daisy

Now for a game… can you match the picture with the name?ImageImageImageImageImageImageImage
