Painted Pet Portraits

As a pet owner, your pet brings joy and happiness to your life. Seeing their sweet face on a daily basis puts a smile on your face. I, Lily Gavalas, will capture that joy in the form of a painted pet portrait that you can hang on your wall at home or at the office; or, give as a gift to a friend. Let me take your favorite pet photo, and turn it into a beautiful work of art!

"The pet portraits of Lily Gavalas remind us of the portrait of "The Hare" painted in 1502 by the German Rennaisance artist, Albrecht Durer.  Each brushstroke is precise and masterful.  Gavalas's realism goes one better, imparting an energy and expression that makes each portrait unique.  She captures immediately that specific expression of personality of a particular animal with brush strokes that are strongly realistic and energetic. The viewer is immediately engaged on an immediate and present emotional level.  Looking at these pet portraits again and again one finds more and more depth into the specific personality or soul of the animal.  This artist is masterful in capturing for eternity that moment in time the reality of the animal with its vigor of life and animus (soul) that I have not observed in other contemporary works."
