Pet painting is viewed as cheesy huh? Really? Well now I'm confused.....because if they're so cheesy then why were you "inundated" with requests to paint others' pets? Are we all cheesy too? As with anything, there are visionaries who see the market potential, and then there are the laggards who won't even bother to look for them or notice them if they ran them over. I place you in the latter category Mrs. Serious Artist if you please. Stick to your river and mountain scenes, lord knows the garage sales of the world don't have nearly enough of your "serious" art laying around. Willing to bet that a portrait of a beloved pet is exponentially more intimate and valuable than anything you'll ever lay on canvas, Mrs Serious Artist.
