Frank (Franciscus) van Boxtel is an extremely talented artist who has been painting since early childhood and doing so professionally since 2003. (Take a look when you’re in Critter Jungle on Carling sometime; you’ll see his work on the walls. And maybe even him!) Frank’s work has been featured in several publications, including covers of several issues of Companion Parrot Quarterly: here’s a self-portrait of Frank with his gorgeous macaw.
Frank does amazing paintings of pets, and if requested, their owners. I love this one of these two pals with their human and then of them playing together. (Frank, as you can see, does brilliant people portraits too).
And isn’t this a gorgeous picture of this little guy in the woods?
Frank is donating a commissioned pet portrait to Homes with Woofs ( either 16″ x 20″
or 18″x18″ depending on your reference photos), valued at $260 so you can have one of these beauties of your own if you’re the successful bidder at the auction on June 12th (we’ll have several of his paintings on display).
