Celebrate Your Dog With An Original Piece of Art

Every dog has their own unique personality, and what better way to show it off than with an original piece of art depicting their signature look? Artist Dean Russo uses bold colors and abstract patterns to turn a photograph of your pet into a timeless piece of art that portrays his energy and unique character.

As you can see in the video above, it is the way Russo paints the animal's expressive eyes that really draw you in to the piece and connect you with the heart and soul of the dog. Many times the pieces also feature quotes and intricate details that highlight what makes the animal so special.

Each work of art is created by hand in mixed media. There are at least ten mediums used in each piece, which could include pastels, oils, wax, sharpies, pencils, charcoal and many more. You can shop for original pieces on Russo's website or contact him to have a unique portrait done of your beloved pet.
