Get a portrait of your dog or cat!
Contact us to request your pet portrait or get more info. Donations can be made at this link.
Update: Offer renewed for 2012. Order your pet portrait by Dec. 1 for delivery by Christmas 2012!
Trudie is making this special offer now out of her devotion to St. Francis, the patron saint of animals, and her commitment to Jesus in Love. The Feast of St. Francis is Oct. 4 and animal blessings are happening in churches all over the world this month.
The pastel drawings are done in a size suitable for framing in 8 x 10 format. Trudie does one pet per page -- this allows her to get a good likeness in the space available.
“We just love the pictures of our dogs that Trudie drew for us. I hope that others will take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to honor their pets,” says Rev. Mark Shirilau, archbishop of the Ecumenical Catholic Church. He got portraits of his dogs through Jesus in Love last year.
Trudie is a member of First Metropolitan Community Church of Atlanta. You can see more examples of her pet portraits at:
