A Work of Art In Every Picture
Pet lovers regularly photograph their four-footed family members in all variety of poses. From the ludicrous to the serious to the poignant to the sad, oftentimes those in love with a cat or dog will take pictures of their pets with greater frequency than they memorialize their own human friends!
This makes a lot of sense, because the love between people and pets has an unconditional quality to it that often isn't found between people. Certainly, there are instances where owners mistreat their pets, or where some cat gets an attitude as a kitten that never leaves through the course of its life. But most the time, the relationship between humans and their animals has a unique, beautiful quality to it.
There is such a quality to this relationship that oftentimes leaving a pet behind for an important trip, or for an overseas adventure, becomes difficult. While those artful pictures serve as a means of remembering pets in part, they don't quite do the animals the justice they deserve. For that, a painting serves much better.
