Pet Portraits by Mary O'Connor
Painting and love of animals are paired passions of Mary’s. Following the philosophy of “paint what you love,” Mary tends to paint likenesses she has pocketed from nature, whether of an osprey on its nest in the river near her home, a majestic lion photographed while on safari in Africa, or a four-legged home companion. Her work has appeared in area art gallery exhibits as well as in the homes of delighted pet owners.
It is that ability to delight others through memorable and charismatic paintings of favorite furry or feathered friends, be it a bird, cat, dog or other beloved animal buddy, that she most enjoys fulfilling. Using her artist’s eye, Mary looks for ways to portray the personality of her subject as well as its physical features. She accomplishes this by considering reference photos as well as the owner’s insights into their furry friend’s unique traits, looking for ways to create pet portraits that tell stories, bring memories and, most importantly, make people smile.
