Day Five: 12 Days of Christmas Pets

Scanned DocumentMy cousin Shannon Baker commissioned artist Sam Peterson to paint this picture of her dogs Pete and Josie for Christmas a few years ago.

Sam Peterson is a visual artist who explores his relationship with other species using many different mediums. He works on commission, using either photos he takes of the subject, or photos chosen with the client. The works are small, intimate, lively, and thoughtful. His most recent commission was for the recently deceased beagle mix Tangerine, whom he drew in a field of bluebonnets (she’s Texan) that turned into butterflies arching into the sky, representing her now-free spirit.

12 Days of Christmas PETS is coming

This year to celebrate the Holiday Season I’ll be hosting 12 Days of Christmas PETS, a loving, fun-filled reflection of man’s best friend at Christmas time.

I just got my first submission from illustrator Jedediah Kahl and it is just terrific.

I’m looking for art work in all forms (from painting to photography to musical compositions to poetry) so get your pencils out and your creative juices flowing.

Send me a message if you want to participate.
