|"Elmer" - April 2010|
11" x 14" Gallery Wrapped Canvas
Black & White Acrylic
Elmer is the first of a series of Pet Portraits by Artist Anthony Trott.
Painted only a few months after the passing of his girlfriend's dog (of whom is the subject of the portrait), Anthony presented this painting to her in hopes it would help to ease her pain over the loss of her Elmer and maybe someday provide her with some level of peace and closure.
Since then, Anthony has started painting his style of Pet Portraits for others, either in memoriam or in honor of a loved animal.
Anthony's thought on the Pet Portraits is "Anyone can take a picture and keep it and look at it, but there is something uniquely special that comes with a portrait created by hand of that someone so special. A part of their spirit is captured within it...and lives on forever with you."
