Custom Animal Companion Portraits That Touch The Heart And Speak From The Soul

“Summer Days” ~ Nikki – 24″ x 30″ Acrylic on Canvas Animal Companion Portrait by Tania Marie

Being deeply heart-connected to animals since I birthed into this experience of life, and having very profound and magical relationships with my own animal companions, it’s no wonder why I resonate so much with painting our beautiful animal friends. To me they are no different than myself and I see and honor them as the divine souls I know them to be.

I love channeling soul energy that comes through our animal sisters and brothers. Animal Spirit Guides always come through whenever I am working intuitively or supporting others with Reiki sessions, which is why I started to provide Animal Spirit Guide Readings in combo with Reiki Healing Attunements and why I was inspired to create my new series Universal ARKitecture that channels the messages of the Animal Spirits of the Earth.

I am always honored and excited to be able to bring to life the spirit of someone’s beloved animal companion and today I’m sharing the joyous spirit of Nikki, that I was commissioned to paint as a gift to the dear friend of my client. I have titled this painting, “Summer Days,” as it depicts Nikki at her family’s summer home in her favorite spot she loves to hang out. She has such a joyous, bright spirit, reminiscent of vibrant Summer Sun.

My gift in creating these animal portraits is in bringing to life the inner spirit of each beautiful soul and infusing visionary elements that highlight the magic of their uniqueness. I create from photos provided and either create my own environment to support the spirit of each soul that feels to highlight their essence, or will create what is desired as their environment – always infused with an artistic vision in how to bring those elements to “life” with a little Tania flair that I’ve come to be known for in my paintings.

Animals are our best friends, children, companions, soulmates and in many cases are the dearest gifts in our lives – always there unconditionally to support and love us. Many have lost dear ones, currently have new members in their family, or have those that have been with them through thick and thin for years. In honor of these dear ones that bring invaluable joy to our lives in immeasurable ways, I offer animal companion portraiture as a custom service.

The animals have a message to share with us. We need only to listen. ~ Tania Marie

“A human being is part of a whole, called by us the ‘Universe’ – a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” ~ Albert Einstein 

“Lots of people talk to animals…. Not very many listen, though…. That’s the problem.” ~ Benjamin Hoff 

“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.” ~ Anatole France

“Who can believe that there is no soul behind those luminous eyes!” ~ Theophile Gautier 

“An animal’s eyes have the power to speak a great language.” ~ Martin Buber
