Artists Are Finding a Market For Pet Portraits
Americans are obsessed with their pets. Well, Americans are obsessed with a lot of things, but when it comes to our pets, almost no expense is too large. Americans spend more than $43 billion a year in an effort to keep their pets happy and healthy. Granted not every pet owner has the cash to pamper their furchild outside of providing a safe and loving home, and giving lots of kisses (which are free), but the boutique pet industry has been on the rise as people are willing to spend more and more money on their pets. Why shouldn't independent artists get in on the game?
