in fact, they love you so much they even have a portrait commissioned of your beautiful mug. and all you have to do is not chew the new choos. lynn sulpy creates these amazing oil likenesses of your animal from a photograph:wayne thiebaut use of colors. (that photo is priceless. who wouldn't want that pup for a best little pal). her work is sold on etsy and through her website which carries more of her beautiful oil paintings.
