There could be no better gift for someone who loves an animal, whether they are age 9 or 99, than a beautiful painting of their cat, pup, bird, horse etc.... It can be especially meaningful to someone who has lost them.
WASTE NO TIME clicking on thepaintgirl.net and meet Alicia Irick Cohen, the wonderful artist who is so talented that she does work like this:
She's known for her ability to get your pet just right. You and Alicia can discuss what you want and she will custom make your background - the colors, patterns or setting. But what I like best about her work is that while it's classically done and strikingly realistic, she has a sense of whimsey that can work itself into the portrait if you choose - whether subtly or outrageously. Like these:
Now if you have no pets but love her art... or think it would be just perfect for someone on your list. She has a select collection on her ETSY site for IMMEDIATE SALE. CLICK HERE and you can get the pieces in time for the holiday. She works on canvas and wood, among other surfaces. Both have their appeal.
Alicia does high quality work, and while she can create a finished portrait within your agreed upon time frame, many many hours go into each portrait. The result is lasting, super special, one of a kind.
