World Cat Day!

SideBySide

Happy World Cat Day! I’ve been trying to find more inspiration for some more necklaces for my shop a little while back and thought one of my fiancé’s cats would be a perfect model for me. But then, of course, by the time the painting was done, I knew that I had just made myself a new necklace. Whoops.

But in honour of World Cat Day, this post is dedicated to this cutie because she will always be a muse to me!

Rest In Peace, Pets

I’ve been able to paint lovely memorial necklaces over the past little while.

There’s something very bittersweet about being able to paint a beloved pet that someone has lost..

It’s like you get to help keep their memory alive.

Rest in peace, beautiful creatures.

Go Small or Go Home!

My little painted rabbit was one of the first stone pendants I made.

It was small and simple, and actually, I still keep it with me, in memory of my little rabbit Lucy.

I started to paint little cats and little dogs, and they soon took over the skies as little angels.

Now I’m offering custom painted pet pendants.

I can’t wait to create more!

Even the grumpy ones.

Rest in Peace, Dear Pets

I’ve talked to some of the nicest people since I started my shop on Etsy, and learned that in some instances, I’ll receive an order because the artwork is helping to heal those that have lost a beloved pet. I’ve had a variety of critters growing up and I still miss them all dearly; so I know how incredibly hard it is because they become a huge part of the family. So I felt really fortunate that someone would choose something that I’ve created in order to help them with something so important.

I decided to make this cat card and dedicate them to the ones that we’ve lost, and to perhaps help heal a broken heart. I wanted something simple yet effective; so my favourite little black cat took the stage. I think I may need to paint some beautiful dogs in the future as well; can’t forget the lovely puppies.

If anyone has ever lost a pet, I’m sending a lot of hugs your way. ❤

A Bunny Portrait

I never really knew what to call my very first rabbit. My family called him different things: Bunny, Bee-bee (‘baby’ in Cantonese), Buddy, Mr. Bunny. I called him Baby usually. Eventually I wanted to call him Snoopy, but it didn’t really stick since we all already had our own names for him; so I just usually called him Snoopy when I talked about him online.

He was a really quirky little rabbit, always obsessed with food (he stole a banana peel out of the garbage bin one day, and BOLTED with it in tow once I caught him!) and he was the only rabbit that I had that actually liked lying around the cool bathroom tiles in the hot summers. He was a smart cookie.  His furry self has found his way into a lot of my drawings, took the lead in one of my old online comics, and has since been in a few paintings. I think he probably needs to be in more artwork, really. He was quite the handsome, cheeky little guy. The above portrait I painted a while back. I think I got the little gray tufts of fuzz on his head just about right. I miss that fuzzy head and giant floppy ears.

Oldie but a goodie ❤
