Happy Columbus Day Weekend friends! I hope you are all enjoying your Sunday. It is 86 degrees in New England today! So we are taking advantage of this weather for sure! I had done some work in the barn in the morning, this is just what I needed today! It totally relaxed me!
I normally do not do these types of giveaways but when I saw Jessi Lynn\’s Etsy shop, I honestly had to share her work with you! I could not keep it to myself! Her work is just too nice not to share…
Jessi Lynn paints \”custom pet portraits\” and \”nature watercolor paintings\”. Here is a little bio about her and I think you will see that she loves all kinds of animals too! Please don\’t forget to enter to win!
It\’s that time of year again and Christmas shopping has already begun. Have you considered giving the unique and memorable gift of a custom pet portrait this year? Jessi Lynn is a watercolor artist on Etsy who creates beautiful watercolor paintings of cute animals and custom portraits of your pets! They make great gifts and great to decorate with in your home. She is humored by animals doing funny things and enjoys painting pictures that tell a story. She lives in Southern California near the LA Zoo and frequently find excuses to spend time outdoors sketching and painting other peoples pets. You can check out more of her art here…( \”animal watercolor paintings\” or \”custom pet portraits\” )
What is the funniest animal story you\’ve heard?
It would probably be the time my friend, who played the Gorilla from the American Tourister commercials for years, was asked by a zoo (which will remain un-named) to come pose as a gorilla in their empty cage for three days while investors toured the facility. His suit is so anatomically correct its hard to tell him apart from the real thing.
What was your first pet?
A fish named Jaws, then a turtle named Einstein.
What do you love about animals the most?
I love animals because I find so much beauty when I look at them. I also blown away at how loyal some pets can be even when it means they put themselves in harms way to save their masters.
What pet do you wish you always had?
Since I was little I\’ve always wanted a monkey, but since I recently found out I\’m allergic to animal dander : ( I will enjoy painting them for now.
Any Closing Comments?
Yes, I hope you have a wonderful holiday season. I look forward to painting your cute animal friends! – Jessi Lynn
