A portrait of Jennie
You probably have dozens of photos in your cellphone of your dog doing something adorable.
But someday you might want to have an image of your best friend that's good enough to hang over the mantle.
That's when you want to commission a local artist like Kat Corrigan (katcorrigan.com) , Hannah Frick (hannahfrickart.com), Leslie Plesser (shuttersmack.com) or Kristin Williams (kristinwilliams.com) to do a portrait of your pooch.
You can even memorialize your pet as a miniature fur, fiber and wool sculpture done by artist Lucy Francis (lucyfrancisminiatures.com).
Costs run from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars, depending on the project.
