Shannon Bromenschenkel September 12, 2011 at 7:31 am

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!”

120
JoanneTX September 12, 2011 at 7:32 am

My rescue dog Benny! He’s the joy of my life. :-)

121

122
The Mrs @ Success Along the Weigh September 12, 2011 at 7:33 am

My angel puppy. She passed away 4 years ago Wednesday and she’s been on my mind a lot lately. She was my husband’s first dog too and we miss her so much. There is a picture of her holding her hedgehog in her mouth poking me to play and I would love nothing more than to have that in a painting.

159
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!

160
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 sweet, little dog, Dori would be the subject of my portrait. I just love this dog! She makes me smile.

169
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!

170
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!

171

173
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? :)

174
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.

175
Michelle Frame September 12, 2011 at 8:06 am

194
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!

195
Jess September 12, 2011 at 8:19 am

My cute little niece would be my subject of choice!

196
Jessica September 12, 2011 at 8:20 am
