Let's create a museum quality oil portrait that will become a cherished family heirloom!
A custom portrait by a professional artist is not merely a representation or likeness of a person or animal.
The creative choices in color, style and presentation are balanced to present the sitter at their best, while creating a painting that stands on its own as a work of art.
Most of the portraits I paint are done from the photos provided by the client. Send me as many as you can as it is helpful when choosing the best photo for the portrait, however, I only work from the one photo chosen. If the portrait is to be of more than one pet I can compose the painting from single photos of each pet. Let me know if you have a favorite photo and I will let you know if it is suitable to work from.
Go here for helpful hints on how to photograph your pet:
If you email them to me try to send them at the highest resolution possible. You can also mail them to me as prints or on a CD. I will return the prints to you along with the finished portrait.
You can email me at email@example.com with your requests or questions at anytime.
I will try to get back to you within
I require a 50% nonrefundable deposit when I accept your commission and before starting the painting. Turnaround time will be discussed at time of ordering and usually takes a few weeks depending on the complexity of the painting. Please let me know if you need the painting for a special occasion and I will try to accommodate you if possible. If you are interested in a portrait for Christmas I would suggest placing your order at least one month in advance.
