Wanted: Victorian Dog Portrait Artist

The husband and I would really love to have Victorian portraits painted of our dogs that we can frame in hideously gaudy ornate gold frames and hang side by side. Obviously we think it’s hilarious and years down the line, a way to remember our dogs and smile.

Etsy shop Hot Digital Dog offers very cool Victorian prints that they digitize your dog into {above} for $50 and while I love the idea {and just may do it} I really would love a thickly textured painted version like the old Victorian originals.

I also found these Ancestral Victorian Canine : Classic Art Reproductions which are fantastic and more what I’m looking for but are not our dogs. I think if they had a Pug & a French Bulldog I would consider them …but they don’t.
