…And Other Pet Wisdom
No, we here at Larry Gekiere – Artist don’t think “humans are nuts”, but we are well aware of the wisdom and wit of our fur and feathered and finned companions. I thought we should start the year sharing some of it with you, along with some of the custom oil-painted portraits of these wise companions we have captured on canvas.
