Paint your own pet

Huey Diptychimg274img272I’m not sure if it’s the same where you live, but in Portland, all sorts of painting and wine classes have cropped up all over town. Most of the classes look like this: Classes show you how to paint a specific painting, and an instructor shows you step-by-step on how to create your masterpiece. Some companies have a fixed location, while others float around to different bars and restaurants around town. Oh, and all of them offer wine. Or beer. Or other drinks. Sounds appealing, no?

Well, my friends and I decided to do a different take on the painting class, and there was one offered on painting your own pet! You send in a photo of your pet, they have a caricature artist who draws your pet on canvas, and then you show up to class to paint over the drawing. It’s sort of like paint by numbers. Super fun.

Huey sort of looks like a cartoon version of himself in my painting. It sorts of reminds me of Scooby Doo. But I love it and am proud of it. Also, it’s kind of hard to screw up a cross-eyed tongue out photo of your dog. He already looks silly, so anything I do would just add to that silliness. 🙂

I love that dog.
