Announcement: Add a Human
I'm officially encouraging you to consider adding a human to your commissioned portrait.

possibility. My fascination with the way humans and animals
interact is hungry to express itself in my art. When we look at
our pet portraits, we hope to feel some of the love we have for that
pet; I'd like to capture that actual bond, to focus on the way you (or
your child, or friend, or grandmom ...) IS with that dog or cat or
hamster (etc.). So, while you're thinking about your commission,
I hope you'll consider the possibility of adding the human presence in
the portrait itself.
