Ready for her closeup. Perhaps enough time has passed so that the younger generations want paintings of their pets, just like their grandparents once did. You know, a supercute, colorful portrait of Cupcake, Sharkbait or Jessie? If so, then let us steer you to Jenny Belin.

Told of the site by a client, she sent us the nicest email this morning: “in addition to my own work, I make commissioned paintings of people’s pets, from photographs they send me as JPEGs or in the mail. ” Looking at her portraits just lifted the late morning office hazy like a fresh cup of coffee and we thought to put her up right away.

Jenny does portraits of pets, adults and babies or adults, babies AND pets. Prices start at $200 for 9×12 canvas and go up to $600 for a 12×14 canvas with all of the above. She says it takes her about a week to send you a painting (once she starts) and can be reached at (Thanks, Nell!) MGR
