For many dog parents, the joy and absolute bliss of spending time with their pets is the perfect excuse to take hundreds of photos, make videos, and of course, add all kinds of goofy filters in the process. There’s no end of our wish to commemorate every silly moment, every head tilt, every funky prance, and of course, every guilty pleasure (hear that, destroyed couch, you’ll be in a video!). Still, as amazing as your phone camera might be, there are different, more creative ways to build the memory bank of your pooch.
Enter: fun, exciting, unique portraits! These paintings can serve all kinds of pawrposes, so if you’re open to the idea, here are a few ways you can put your pupper’s portrait to excellent use, and how it can add more excitement to your life.
A pawfect decorating chance
More often than not, people will settle for existing solutions to add a visual flair to their home. We’ll invest in beautiful plants, stock paintings and photography, and the occasional rug to add some warmth – especially for the pooch.
With a portrait of your dog at your disposal, you can decorate your home in an unusual way, give it that touch of personality and make it truly your own. It will become a perfect conversation-starter whenever you have a party, rest assured.
Bring your companion’s character to life
Photos are a brilliant, readily available way to capture certain moments in your dog’s life, be it that loving gaze right before you give them their favorite treat, or that curious sleeping position you’ve never seen before. Even the blurriest of photos become our favorite, because, let’s face it, nothing can diminish the effect of their adorable snout.
With that in mind, adding funny dog portraits to your collection means that you can choose all kinds of different themes and styles to represent your pup’s true nature. Whether you want to turn your dog into royalty, a Sith lord, or a member of the LOTR gang – you can use any idea to create a unique and authentic, yet goofy portrait of your trusty dog.
A great holiday gift for your loved one
Whether your partner, kids, or one of your family members has fallen in love with your pooch, because how couldn’t they, a portrait is a perfect present. Unlike a typical photo that limits your options to what you have on your phone, a portrait can be customized based on what moment you want to commemorate, what particular quirk of your dog you want to bring to life, and what you wish to achieve with such an original present!
Add variety to your set of visual memories
There’s no denying that your photo collections will only keep growing, with or without the portrait. Still, this new (but old-school) approach can diversify your collection of memorabilia regarding your love for your dog.
Portraits can be minimalistic, serious, somber, or they can be silly, quirky, and colorful. They can be caricatures, they can be entirely reflective of your own home décor, and whatever you choose to do, that portrait will help you build up your collection in this exciting way!
Raise awareness of a puppy-related issue
Whether you’re the kind of person to support the “adopt, don’t shop” mantra, or you’re all about that #crueltyfree shopping spree, you can always let your portray tell the tale of what your love for animals means and tell a unique story.
Perhaps your pupper suffers from a unique condition and more people need to know that such four-legged fluffers deserve the same love and care, or you want to inspire people to lead a life that will cause no harm to these loving creatures. Let the portrait become a beacon for your cause and you might be able to auction it for a sizeable donation for a great cause, or for a local shelter in need of help.
With so many portrait styles you can choose from and different ways to let your pup spring to life on canvas, this one is a no-brainer. It will bring life to your living space, make an ideal present for someone who loves your faithful comrade, and it will definitely enrich your already extensive photo collection of your doggo.
