“Obie.” This is the second pet portrait I did for the Yellowstone Valley Animal Shelter Pet Roulette fundraiser. In March of 2023, Yellowstone Valley Animal Shelter invited artists to donate our time and skills to their Pet Roulette fundraiser. Once we volunteered, we were sent a photo of an animal to draw or paint. The choice of medium was up to us and completed art was limited to a maximum size of 8″x10″ so it could easily fit into an envelope to be mailed to the recipient. The person who provided the photo made a donation to the Yellowstone Valley Animal Shelter in an undisclosed amount. They had no idea who would be doing their pet’s portrait. It was so much fun! Isn’t Obie just darling?
