Paul ordered an image of his guinea pig Cupcake as a Queen. Cupcake is very small, but she is a very smart, gentle and docile creature. Most of all, she loves to sit on the owner’s shoulder and squeak softly. However, Paul commissioned a pet portrait from us for a sad reason. Guinea pigs live little even in captivity – only 4 to 8 years. Cupcake was already 4 years old, Paul was afraid of losing her and wanted to keep the memory of his beloved creature in the form of a portrait. Fortunately, his fears were not justified – baby Cupcake is already 5 and she is still active and healthy.
Of course, there are also portraits with a love story behind them. For example, newlyweds Mary and Fernando asked us to draw their cat Lucy, who became a real Cupid. Young people met because of her. They both were able to purchase real estate in a young age and wanted to adopt an animal from a shelter so that their new homes would be comfortable. Surely their union was made in heaven, because they went to the same shelter at the same time and liked the same cat. They bumped into each other’s foreheads when they sat to take a look at Lucy’s cage. Then Fernando invited Mary on a date.
By the time the bruises on their foreheads had healed, they had already begun to live together in Mary's house and took Lucy with them. Lucy
is a fat gray cat with large white spots. She has a calm personality and looks majestic in her queen's portrait.
