Perhaps the Painted Personality Pet Portrait?

SnoweySometimes a client would rather remember the “essence” of a pet’s personality SugarCuberather than the photo accuracy of the particular animal’s photo-realistic characteristics. We all know the lay of our particular pet’s fur, the twinkle in his eye, the crooked expression, the missing fang, the bent tail, etc. Paintings are a chance to do what the camera cannot do! Sometimes it would be nice to remember a beloved pet in a wacky-whimsical, colorful, less realistic way.

Shorty

Interpretations in paint by Alana’s Art will capture the idealistic quirkiness of your pet’s one-of-a-kind personality,  preserving that image in textural, colorful, sparkly, stylistic way. These kinds of portraits make your heart smile every time you pass by. Your friends and visitors will be drawn to the painting over and over and need no explanation of what a character you best beast friend must be!

A Scavenger Named Diligence—A poem by Alana Solomon

That sneaky ole gal behind the trash can,

doing what only a bandit can.

She sniffs and sifts and keeps an eye out

for any who’d follow his own keen snout.

Her ring-tailed plume follows close behind

as she visits with hopes of a succulent find.

Her inky black mask secures anonymity

all through the night and all through the city.

With lightening-quick paws she fingers and draws

remains of the day up to her jaws:

melon rinds, clementines, yoke drippings, greasy chitlins,

peach stones, chicken bones, an apple core, need I say more?

She shuffles along in her thick fur stole

with long street shadows, a lonely soul.

Is she off to the ballet or perhaps the shows?

Unseen in shadows she comes and goes,

to Blackwater Cafe perhaps, who knows?

Where does she live? Where does she sleep?

When the hustle and bustle begin on the street?

Down by the icehouse on the deep Cape Fear,

in the limey-green marshes surrounding the pier,

to the old live oak, the muddy path leads,

whose hollow is dry and packed full of leaves.

She’s off with a scurry; I thought “what’s the hurry?”

till silver light streamed by the livery surrey.

The morning hour creeps, in with a haze,

as summer sun floats while blue moon fades.

Her name is Diligence tufted in grays;

I’ll see her again after faithful days.

Her Maker is glorified by her meaningless task,

finding she’s consistent behind her mask.

Night after night she emerges once more

to the alley she comes for the trashcan pour.

Her Owner supplies all she needs for her life

while she’s wild and free and free from strife.

Alana is inspired by all things art and believes that in art, there is exactly and only one rule: “There are no rules!” Her favorite motto is: “The best artists are children!” and “True artists never grow up!” From crayons, to finger paints, to walls, to easels, Alana has immersed herself in paint, painting, drawing, murals, faux painting, painted furniture, portraiture, fashion, children’s books, photography, and many other forms of artistic expression. She will encourage anyone to explore the creative world of art by nature-discovery, self-discovery and ultimately discovering the original Artist, The Creator Himself. Alana is passionate about using the gifts on loan to her, to inspire others to do the same. She definitely lives by the motto: “Do what you love; Love what you do.” And if you don’t love what she just did, hang around, you might just love the next thing she does! She’s on a rampage and paintings are emerging at an alarmingly exponential rate!
