Penny loves to play ball, swim, chew rawhide, and bark like Cujo at people walking by the storm door. After a replaced ACL last year and a recent injury to her other leg, she's banished from running and walks around the neighborhood for a while.

oil pastel portrait on Arches Cover
After the birth of our daughter Natalie, I noticed that there wasn't much custom artwork available for children's rooms and nurseries. I have been painting pet portraits and other art, in my Etsy shop Bethany Bryant Art. I found Natalie got very excited when she saw my pet portraits, and thought that other children would like a picture of their doggie or kitty for their room. It was freeing and fun to open another shop focusing on more whimsical portraits. And so Little Pennypie was born!

I like to customize these portraits with colors from the bedroom, and use the themes of the childs' bedding to coordinate. Read about Penny's portrait here.
