My dad was everything to me growing up. He taught me to be tough and to experience everything in the world. He taught me to travel and believe it our not.. I am in a creative field right now, and it is all because of what he taught me. I love my dad, but he passed away suddenly three years ago at the age of 59. I never had a chance to say good bye. The watercolor would honor my dad’s love for the arts..whether it be on paper or in music or any other way.. my dad was every bit of creativity. So, this would honor my father, P.K. I love you dad.

That photograph brings back a lot of happy memories even though she was so sick and every time I see it, I cry happy tears. I would love to be able to preserve this memory in a watercolor.

Who would the subject of your painting be? Immediately, I knew I would who the subject would be…. my absolutely beautiful, spunky, spoiled Siberian Husky. Her name is Lady Isabelle. She is grey and white with such beautiful light blue eyes! I think a watercolor image of her would be absolutely stunning!!! Why? Because she is absolutely perfect…. And she tilts her head back and forth just perfectly when I tell her this in my best squeaky voice (you know, that voice you only use when you talk to your dog)…. I should have named her Mary though because she is just like Mary Poppins – “Practically Perfect in Every Way!”

160
Tracy Franklin September 12, 2011 at 7:55 am

My two year old… Would love a watercolor portrait of her! Thanks for the opportunity!

161
alex m September 12, 2011 at 7:56 am

I’d get one of my cats. I’d have to give her individual pics and have her make it look like they were actually all sitting next to each other. Usually the kitten is getting into trouble bothering the other two!

162
Jen Borba September 12, 2011 at 7:56 am

My rescued Boxer named “Hank”. He gives me such joy with his daily mischief. I am an empty nester and he has filled my house and heart with enormous pleasure.

My husband dog walks our neighbors dog and has become quite attached to him. I think he spends more time with their dog than he does with me! :)

I’d love to get a painting of his buddy so he’ll always remember him when we have to move away next year.

169
Page September 12, 2011 at 7:59 am

170
Kelly Hostetter September 12, 2011 at 8:00 am

My sweet, little dog, Dori would be the subject of my portrait. I just love this dog! She makes me smile.

171
Jessica September 12, 2011 at 8:01 am

I’d have to think about that! I’d like to do all 3 of my pets: 2 cats and a dog. But they would never, ever, ever consent to sit still for a picture together. The dog would try to chase/eat the cats, and they would run away and hide under the bed. So I would have to choose between them… I think I’d pick the cats. They’re less visible most of the time, due to the hiding under the bed, so it’d be nice to have a lovely painting of them around, at least!

172
kayleigh September 12, 2011 at 8:03 am

what a fun giveaway! i would have my two dogs, buddy and peanut, as the subject of the portrait!

173
Sharman P September 12, 2011 at 8:04 am

I think a picture of our two cats, Buddy and Gato would be so special.
I love your picture of your two dogs.

174
Lori G September 12, 2011 at 8:04 am

My Grand-dog, Russo, a Renaissance Bulldog. My daughter has been wanting to get a photograph of him printed on a canvas to hang in the living room of her new home. This would be SO much better!! Thanks for the chance to win Amanda!

175
Lo September 12, 2011 at 8:05 am

Since we don’t have kids (yet!) I think that the subject would be my sweet 73 lb. puppy Deen (short for Paula Deen). She is beautiful and for now the only baby we have, so why not put up her portrait? :)

176
Jennifer September 12, 2011 at 8:05 am

I would choose our first baby…our 16yr old Tuxedo cat Pippin. He is in the end years of his life and such a fixture in our family, I can’t think of a better way to remember him when he is gone.

177
Michelle Frame September 12, 2011 at 8:06 am

Great give away opportunity! Thanks!! Mine would be of my dogs Dexter and Gracie…they are the loves of my life and would love to capture them forever on canvas! Thanks again! Michelle!

What a beautiful giveaway! I would want a painting of my Sadie, a little Boston Terrier. She is soo cute with her one blue eye and one brown eye!

196
Terri September 12, 2011 at 8:19 am

The subject of my painting would be my beautiful grand-daughter, Evangeline. At 6 months old, I’m pretty sure she is the cutest baby to ever be born! Of course, I am not too objective about this fact, but it would thrill my heart to have a beautiful water color portrait of her!

197
Jess September 12, 2011 at 8:19 am

My cute little niece would be my subject of choice!

198
Jessica September 12, 2011 at 8:20 am

Most definitely our Boston Terrier Clive and our cats if we can get them to hold still for 4 seconds, otherwise they’ll be depicted as sketchy blurs running around him.

199
Erin Vassar September 12, 2011 at 8:22 am

I would love one that would capture our family of four (five with our pooch) right now. We’re just finishing our family room remodel and I need something great for the walls!

207

210
Michelle September 12, 2011 at 8:33 am

My Baby Chloe! She is a pit. Full of love <3 I am not able to carry a child, so a friend gave us a puppy 2 years ago and my life has never been the same. I thought I knew love till we got her! She is the most amazing gentle happy baby girl you could ever meet! I love her so :O)

211
Christy D September 12, 2011 at 8:33 am

Mine would definitely be of my black lab mix Bogart. Too cute! Thanks for sharing!

212
Sarah September 12, 2011 at 8:33 am

My horse, Rebel, who died too young last year. Had her for 12 years.

213
Merry September 12, 2011 at 8:34 am

My Kids! These are spectacular water colors!

214
Carol September 12, 2011 at 8:34 am

The subject of the painting that I would want would be my grand daughter. She is a wonderful child, just turning 10. She is the light of my life and I know you would love her too. She is so kind to others and the light in that child shows through her eyes.

215
kelly September 12, 2011 at 8:34 am

220
Heidi September 12, 2011 at 8:39 am

221
Angie Mc. September 12, 2011 at 8:39 am

We had a family picture a couple years ago that is still my favorite pic. I’d love to have that one done.

222
Lindsay September 12, 2011 at 8:39 am

227
Karen September 12, 2011 at 8:42 am

My painting would be of our Bassett Hound, Molly, and our Peekapoo, Snuggles. They have a love-hate relationship! The hardest part would be getting them to sit close to get a picture made for the painting!! LOL – Karen

228
Andi Burks September 12, 2011 at 8:42 am

I am due with our child on 10/13 and would love to have a painting of him as a newborn. We are older parents – I’m 40 and my husband is 45 – and we both know that this will probably be our only child as this has not been the easiest of pregnancies. We are so blessed and would love to have this painting so that we can always remember our precious angel as a baby and for him to know how much we cherish the opportunity to be his parents.

229
Brenda September 12, 2011 at 8:43 am

It would be my wonderful poodle, that actually was my husband’s birthday gift, but she bonded with me. She is so smart and so much a part of our lives.

Brenda

230
Betsy September 12, 2011 at 8:44 am

I would get a portrait of my two daughters! They are older and it is getting harder to get them together for a picture.

231
Jessica Phillips September 12, 2011 at 8:44 am

My best friend in the whole entire world is getting married next year and I would love to get her a custom painting done of her animals. She has the biggest heart and is absolutely obsessed with animals! She lives on the family farm with her fiance, and I would love to gift her a painting of her mini-pig Hamilton (who turned out to not really be that “miniature”) and/or her little Chiuaua Jackson :) She would be so thrilled for sure. One of her wedding showers she is actually asking people to bring donations for the humane society that she volunteers at, instead of gifts, this painting would be a hit!!!

232
Heidi September 12, 2011 at 8:45 am

My portrait would be of my three girls…they are each so unique in looks and personality, yet so sisters! This would be a treasure to have!!

Rose September 12, 2011 at 8:51 am

tooo cute…would definitely do my 2 sweet scottish folds

247
Amanda S. September 12, 2011 at 8:54 am

I would probably also get a painting done of my dogs. We have a 2 year old, and while it would be wonderful to get one of her, our dogs are getting older, and won’t be around for ever… I would like something beautiful for my daughter to remember them by.

248
allison September 12, 2011 at 8:55 am

Our two Cavaliers, Scrappy and Murry!

249
Alexis September 12, 2011 at 8:56 am

I would have my puggle, Lola, and pug-mix, Gonzo, painted so I can hang it in my dorm them and see them while I’m away at college!

My sweet dog Blue and her best friend (cat sister) Bridget.

252

257
hailey September 12, 2011 at 9:04 am

I think i would have to ask her to paint our two puppies! We have adopted both of them this year, and they have quickly become the center of our lives! :)

258
Lesley L September 12, 2011 at 9:04 am

We have a 2 year old daughter, but I would definitely chose our white lab, Moss. We got her 4 years ago. She arrived 2 weeks before we experienced a devastating loss. She will always be my big baby!

259
Amanda Thompson September 12, 2011 at 9:04 am

Chip, my sweet baby dog!

260
Carolyn Sandonato September 12, 2011 at 9:04 am

My one and only cat Roxy. She is a Russian Blue with so much sass and attitude. She is the sweetest thing and loves to snuggle. She is extremly talky and loves to play fetch with her sparkle ball. She would look great in a painting!

261

My children!

264
Cindee September 12, 2011 at 9:08 am

I love watercolor but have failed dismally at any attempt to do it myself. I would probably choose my daughter who is a senior in high school. She has no idea how beautiful she is; I would love to help her see that beauty.

265
Leslie Kiley September 12, 2011 at 9:09 am

I know that everyone would want a portrait of their child and I am no exception but the reason I would love to have it is that my beautiful daughter needs it for her self esteem! We have been through so much and have come out on top! She is quiet amazing and really beautiful but just does not feel it! This would help her to see herself as others do!

266
Angela September 12, 2011 at 9:09 am

I would love to have one done of my dogs, Kahlua & MeiMei!

267
ElleBee September 12, 2011 at 9:09 am

Don’t know how in the world I would choose, but it would probably be one of my parents…or maybe my boys…or Princess the Wonder Dog…

268
Kami September 12, 2011 at 9:10 am

Our four year old maltipoo Miles, he is the love of my 6 year olds life. This would be adorable in her room!

269

I would love to have a portrait of my yellow labrador, Harley. She is a gentle giant and truly a girl’s best friend. I just took kayaking lessons so she and I can go out on the water together. I got her a person sized BodyGlove doggie life jacket and am just hoping she won’t tip us over! <3

We love that sweet baby girl. It would be such a special treasure to have an artist capture her when she’s new to the world!

298
Jennifer September 12, 2011 at 9:40 am

Gee, that’s hard! If I can have two in the painting, then it would have to be my two boys, if only one, then I’d have to go with our basset hound! She has quite the personality!!!

306
Leanne September 12, 2011 at 9:50 am

316
Leia September 12, 2011 at 9:56 am

I would get a picture of my son with his best friend, Loki Lowe, our Siberian Husky. I think their blue eyes would stand out perfectly in watercolor.

317
Karen September 12, 2011 at 9:57 am

Our dog, Chauncey. We rescued her when she was three after months of searching pounds for a dog that was OK with a cat. And we knew we wanted to have children someday (we were recently married) so the dog had to be good with kids. We couldn’t have asked for a better dog! She is so kind and patient with the kids and is submissive to the cat. The love she shows to us all is amazing. She is a big mutt, but I’m so thankful to have her a part of our life. She will be 11 so (gulp) we anticipate she doesn’t have many years left with us. To have her immortalized would be amazing and a treasure!

318
Erica Lopez September 12, 2011 at 9:59 am

Such an awesome giveaway! If I were to win, I would love to have a watercolor done of my chihuahua Tostada. She is part of the family and spent a lot of time taking care of her as a puppy. Now that I have started my own life in a different state, it’s hard to see my little buddy so it would be nice to have a portrait on my wall. Especially now that she is older.

392
Melinda Shapro September 12, 2011 at 11:21 am

What a beautiful portrait of your babies! My first inclination would be a painting of my two kitty cats but after looking at her website, I see she also does houses. It would be cool to have a painting of my little house hanging in my little house!

395
Suzanne Shepherd September 12, 2011 at 11:24 am

Oh, my goodness! These are so pretty! My first choice would be my 4 little grandsons, without question. But since they have never even all been in one place at the same time, well, it would present a challenge. My second choice? My hubby and our two Australian Shepherds, a good-looking trio if ever there was one!

396
Geneva September 12, 2011 at 11:25 am

I would have a portrait of our 3 precious Boston Terriers, Ebony, Baxter, and Cody!

397
Dalis September 12, 2011 at 11:25 am

well, I miss my sweet little buffy so much, but at the same time I know my old pal Kramer is getting really old… so let’s say I would ask for a portrait of my blond buffy, my lovable Kramer and the butt head Lulu.

400
Allison V September 12, 2011 at 11:32 am

Oh my goodness that is Ace! I love the painting of your boston terriers. Our good friends recently had to put down their five year old boston terrier, Ace. He contracted a rare disease from being boarded at their vet for a week while they were on vacation. It was terribly sad because he was their first baby and it happened so suddenly it took all of us by surprise. He was so full of life and loved playing fetch. This would be a wonderful gift for them to have a beautiful portait of their beloved friend.

401

My girls of course.

417
Joanna @ Southern Daisy September 12, 2011 at 11:56 am

Oh my gosh! So cute! It would definitely be our “not all there” kitty, Lazarus, who we rescued after he was hit by a car. He’s not the brightest star in the sky, and acts like he’s drunk all the time. :-)

418
Casey September 12, 2011 at 11:58 am

one of my family’s siberian huskies as a present for my mom!

Lisa M. Johnson September 12, 2011 at 1:11 pm

Saw the beautiful picture of your two “babies!” Rachael Rossman is such a talented artist (and watercolor is my favorite medium). I think if I won, I’d have her paint a picture of our sweet Shih Tzu~Flicka, who passed away last year, as a gift for our daughter. Kirsten is an “only” and Flicka was the “sister” she never had. We all still miss her a lot and she will always have a special place in our hearts. <3

The subject of my painting would be my cat Kyle. I inherited him from my now husband. When my husband moved from California to Baltimore, his mom told him to get some kind of pet so he wouldn’t have to be alone all the time, and in walks Kyle. When my husband decided to move from Baltimore to Chicago he drove Kyle all the way across country, where Kyle cried the whole way! Kyle’s always by my side, I call him my little dog kitty, because he will follow me everywhere and even as I am typing this he’s up on the side of the couch sitting right next to me. I never was much of a cat person, but Kyle has a special place in my heart, now and always!

Like more than you should really miss a dog. But, like the saying says, the more people I meet, the more I like my dog!

688

Pascale September 12, 2011 at 11:21 pm

Laurie Christen September 13, 2011 at 12:35 am

Thanks for this opportunity!!

704

706
Lisa C September 13, 2011 at 12:49 am

Awesome painting. I would want it to be done for my 3 “kids” (i.e. 3 chihuahuas: Lenny, Nyah, and Enzo) Lenny & Nyah are half brothers and sisters, and Enzo is a rescue chihuahuas whom we got 3 years ago. I never managed to get the 3 of them to look at my camera to get a group shot. Having a watercolor painting done is definitely the only way to go.

707
Susan September 13, 2011 at 12:49 am

adie September 13, 2011 at 12:55 am

I would have my subject as mine and my fiances dog that we had to put down back in December. We had him for years and he was the best animal I have ever had. We have a small shelf with his ashes and pawprint and photo like this would make a memorial perfect!

709

My yorkie Maltese dogs, Oliver and Stanley!

710
Sarah J. September 13, 2011 at 1:03 am

711

713
Pati September 13, 2011 at 2:03 am

Our dog, Sissy! Not sure exactly what kind of dog she is other than lost-and-found : ) She’s a cutie and looks like a small golden retriever at first glance. Some breeder acquaintances have said she looks like a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever, which she does a bit when I looked up what that is.

714

A pekinese pug named Bandit. He is a ten year old dog of some new friends we have made working with Volunteer Christian Builders of Texas. Bandit is so sweet and well-mannered.

Oh, I just love her work! I would love for her to show how wonderful our 19 year old tiger cat is. His name is Stinky. He is 19 years old and and you would never know that. He was a Hurricane Andrew kitten and has lived a full life. This would be a lasting impression for my husband.

725
Donna September 13, 2011 at 7:21 am

733
Jules R September 13, 2011 at 8:22 am

Well, w/o a moment’s hesitation… & truly before I even saw your question, I knew just “who” would be my subject: our wonderful dog Colby, who sadly passed last August. I would love to honor him w/such a wonderful artist’s work. This painting is fantastic!

deb williams September 13, 2011 at 8:54 am

I would have a painting made for my son of his beloved dog “Gretta”. We lost Gretta to bone cancer in January, after having to amputate her front leg last summer. During all she went through she never became mean……up until the very end she would allow my (then) one and a half year old granddaughter to pull, tug, even sit on her. At the same time my father was ill and Gretta would spend most days over at my parents house (they live in the same town) to keep him company. My dad passed away 6 days after Gretta. (We knew Dad was holding on till he saw his beloved Tigers when the National Championship!)

741
Anna September 13, 2011 at 9:04 am

745
Sarah September 13, 2011 at 9:19 am

My watercolor painting would be of my Grandfather that passed away in 2009. Painting with water colors was a great hobby of his. It would be a treasure to have someone depict him in a water color, an everlasting tribute to him.

746
Angie Venable September 13, 2011 at 9:19 am

I would love to have a beautiful picture of my sweet Coal for my children and to help them always remember what a great part of our family he was.

753
Vicki S September 13, 2011 at 9:42 am

My daughter’s dog Chili who has crossed the rainbow bridge only 3 1/2 months after having his leg amputated…she is very sad…I think this would help.

777
Mandy September 13, 2011 at 11:29 am

That would be a toss up. I instinctively want to say my 2 year old daughter, Charlotte. It is such a fun age to capture! However, we have a 1 year old Saint Bernard, Petey. He is pretty awesome and it is definitely hard to find St. Bernard things that look like him!

778

791
Casey L. September 13, 2011 at 1:12 pm

beth stark September 13, 2011 at 7:09 pm

our old dog Quincey. my sister and i begged our mom for a dog for years after my parents divorced. finally in 9th grade we got a baby cocker spaniel, quincey. after we graduate high school and later college, got married and moved out my mom was left with just Quincey. He had to be put to sleep when he was 16 yrs old. (2 1/2 years ago) so my moms empty nest really was empty. i would love to have a painting of quincey as a gift for my mom. we haven’t buried his ashed yet because she can’t bring herself to let go of him. i think this would bring her comfort and allow her to let go, knowing he will always be with her, ashes or not.

846
deannab1 September 13, 2011 at 7:11 pm

I would probably have one done of my niece and nephew and give it to my sister for her upcoming 30th birthday party. These are fantastic!

847
Haley@thedistractedblogger September 13, 2011 at 7:28 pm

What a fantastic giveaway! I would love to get a watercolor of my cat, Persephone. Not only is she adorable, orange and fluffy, but she matches my decor too! Maybe even of her “scratching” my bedside file cabinet to wake me up in the morning. I put scratch in “” because although the noise is evident there are no marks in the spray painted cabinet that I have seen. She’s tricksey!

848
Janice E. September 13, 2011 at 7:42 pm

what an adorable giveaway! If I won the subject of the painting would be our bosses 2 american cockerspaniels; Bailey and Kali. They boost moral at work and they melt all of our hearts every day :). Work wouldnt be the same without them.
