Melissa Smith Art Pet Portrait Paintings

Melissa Smith is a great self-taught artist. She uses a picture that you provide and converts it into a Pet Portrait Painting. Amazing!! Even more amazing is the fact that you get to watch her “work in progress”. Melissa uses Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to post photos of the painting in progress. It was really fun to watch the painting from beginning to end.

Below is the final portrait painting of my boys, Duke and Brutus, along with some of the painting in progress pictures.
