Sabrina by Kathryn Beals

Win A Portrait Of Your Dog!

Talk about generous! Sabrina’s mom, Veronica, is running a contest in the Other Barks and Woofs Forum. She is giving away a portrait of your favorite four-legged companion done by Kathryn Beals. She did the portrait of Sabrina shown above.

Want a free painting of your pup done by Kathryn Beals? If so, enter this contest!

You see, I had a picture painted of Sabrina about a year ago by Kathryn Beals (some of you have probably seen it on my page, and I’m making it my primary pic in a minute!). Kathryn wanted to add a section on her page about how to take and how not to take pictures for paintings and she looked at a lot of good (and not so good) pictures of Sabrina when I was trying to decide which one to have her paint. So she knew how hard it is to capture Sabrina’s coloring in a picture and decided Sabrina would be perfect on her demonstration page of how pictures should and should not look in order to have them painted.

So she contacted me and said she’d give me another painting of Sabrina if I let her put bad pictures of Sabrina up on her website. Well, how could I refuse? I did tell her she had to put a couple of good ones up, too, though!

So anyway, the pictures are up on her website and I have this gift certificate for a painting… and I thought about all my good dogster friends who don’t have any paintings of their pups and I already have one. So I decided to have a contest!

Here’s the deal… tag a picture that you want turned into a portrait “portrait contest 06” before July 4th. On the 4th (since I have work off) I’ll spend as long as I have to looking at the pictures and deciding which one to choose. Make sure the picture is appropriate to be turned into a painting by looking at the page starring Sabrina about how to pick a picture here! I’ll pick the picture I think would look the best turned into a painting.

Good luck and please only enter one picture per pup maximum!

Oh, and the portrait is 16 x 20, which would normally cost $276 including shipping!

Thank you Veronica and Sabrina for being such generous Dogsters! Please bark back in after the winner is chosen and let us know who gets the great new portrait!
