Pet Portraits at The Farmhouse Store

Pet Portraits at The Farmhouse Store

The Farmhouse Store hosted artist Ben Lenovitz in the store on Saturday, July 21st as he painted portraits of customers’ pets on pizza box inserts. Lenovitz painted for 7 hours without a break and made a lot of pet owners very happy. All profits from the portraits were donated to Summit Animal Rescue Association, Inc.(SARA).

A wide variety of dogs (and one cat) visited with Lenovitz throughout the day. The Warsh family of Westfield brought in their French bulldog puppy Lulu. At just a few months old and weighing only a few pounds, Lulu was the tiniest visitor to sit for a portrait. The largest was Theo, a great Pyrenees owned by Theresa Caporaso of Clark.
