227
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.

228
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

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!!!

247

Our two Cavaliers, Scrappy and Murry!

263
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.

264
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!

265
Angela September 12, 2011 at 9:09 am

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

266
ElleBee September 12, 2011 at 9:09 am

The photo is remarkable! I would have one done of our “miracle baby”. She would look amazing in watercolor with a tutu on.

289
Maria September 12, 2011 at 9:33 am

295
Sarah Ivy September 12, 2011 at 9:39 am

I had to put my precious 4 year old Great Dane (named Tiny) to sleep last November and I miss him every single day. He would definitely be my subject.

296
Amber Sidak September 12, 2011 at 9:39 am

I would have to say our newborn daughter! My husband and I were so excited to become parents, and since we brought her home from the hospital it’s been even better than we imagined. 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!

297
Jennifer September 12, 2011 at 9:40 am

My girls and their new puppy! Thanks for the contest! Jennifer
