I first saw Rebecca’s work on Pixels.com, https://rebecca-wang.pixels.com/. I fell in love immediately with her fantasy artwork. When I started viewing her other work, I found it just as beautiful and intriguing. Her colorful pet portraits will draw you in. She has a great talent for capturing the personality and heart of the pet. Her detail work on the eyes are amazingly lifelike. I would like to share some of my favorite work by Rebecca. I hope you appreciate it as much as I do.
Located in Austin, TX, Rebecca has been painting professionally since 2007. She is known for her psychedelic and fantasy style imagery of animals of all kinds, including peacocks, birds, tigers, wolves, lizards, and more! The majority of her work is in acrylics. However, she does sometimes use pastel and colored pencils. Rebecca mostly paints animals, but does sometimes branch out with fantasy work and abstract art. Since 2017, Rebecca has created over 56 custom pet portraits across the United States. She often uses several photos put together to create the perfect, expressive portrait of the pet.
I mentioned how I fell in love with Rebecca’s Fantasy work first. How could I not? This beautiful Fenghuang, also known as a Chinese Phoenix bird, is absolutely stunning! This Phoenix is not really related to the creature of Western myth, but represents the “Yin” to the “Yang” of the dragon. Speaking of…
This is the Azure Dragon, also called “Qing Long” in Chinese. It is one of the four symbols of the Chinese constellations.
The Golden Phoenix represents the Yin, female, while the Silver Dragon represents the Yang, male. They fly together around a sun mandala. When shown together, they represent marital happiness and harmony.
Some of Rebecca’s more abstract pieces are her Mandalas. They are colorful and eye catching. They tend to represent creatures and stories in Chinese Mythology.
This Mandala in particular caught my eye with its darker colors and intricate detail. It loosely represents a Chinese tale of a Koi fish who becomes a dragon. I could stare at this piece for hours!
Psychedelic Animal Art
Psychedelic Rainbows are how I would describe these images. Imbued with color and detail, these images are energetic and vibrant!
Another beautiful piece with intricate detail. The butterfly dances against the colorful rainbow of colors in the background.
Rebecca does custom pet portraits, too! After admiring her work for several years, I decided to honor my special cat, Hyler, by having his portrait painted.
I admit that I am partial to this painting. Rebecca captured Hyler’s “I am King” gaze. Every time I look at this painting, hanging in my kitchen, btw, I stop and stare into those eyes. They are so lifelike. My husband and I both cried when this painting arrived.
This portrait caught my eye with his little colorful bowtie. I love the way Rebecca creates black using so many colors. It gives the portrait life.
She doesn’t just paint cats and dogs, though! I found this portrait of Koda, a Central Bearded Dragon on her Pixels site. He looks like a majestic fellow, doesn’t he?
Once Rebecca has painted your pet’s portrait, you receive a beautiful stretched canvas, expertly packaged, btw! And the image is available in her store on home decor (pillows, shower curtains, etc) and gift products (puzzles, masks, mugs).
I hope you enjoy Rebecca’s art as much as I do! Rebecca’s work is available as high quality prints, on home decor items, and on gift products. You can find her at the following links:
