Art is not a piece of furniture. Do you really want a portrait of your Yellow Lab to have a beige background and hang on your beige wall? Or a white great pyrenees, with a white background hanging on your white wall? Just because it matches the decor? You didn't choose your pet because Sparky's coloring went perfectly with your sofa. You chose your Sparky for his bubbly personality. Why shouldn't his portrait have personality too?
