It is possible to also have the pet look like it is the mood of the occasion, when it is painted dressed in some of the holiday’s staples, such as Santa’s hat. When you look through the artist’s portfolio, you will tell if the artist is capable of delivering good work. When you look at what they have done in the past, you will get a feel of whether you can allow them to work on the portrait.
