My favorite thing about these spaces was actually one of the most subtle features: the vertical row of pet portraits hanging in the dining room. These paintings of several of the homeowner’s most beloved four-legged friends were painted in oil by artist Madison Cawein (who, incidentally, is the grandson of the well-known Louisville poet of the same name). Pet-centric artwork doesn’t have to be a magnet and a snapshot on the refrigerator. Great black-and-white photographs, drawings, or paintings will become high art when framed well. But no frames that look like bones! Novelty frames make your pet look like a novelty. Give your art a great look that will set tongues and tails wagging.
