Custom Pet Portraits are painted from a client-supplied photograph. I paint with acrylics on unframed, gallery quality birch panels. The panel sides are painted black and look great as is; or we can discuss framing options for an additional charge.
If you are interested in commissioning a portrait, send me an email with several photos of your pet. Include a bit about your pet and the approximate size you are interested in.
The more photos you can send, the better! I only paint from a single photo, however seeing several options helps when choosing the best photo to work from. Portraits are best when painted from a photo supplied by you because animals are more comfortable with people they are familiar with. But in order to capture your pet’s unique personality, if you live locally, I’d love to meet them if possible. If you are out-of-state, or your loved one has crossed the rainbow bridge, that’s OK. I ship paintings all the time and I also paint a lot of memorial portraits. In these cases I would love to hear some favorite stories to get a sense of your much loved pet’s personality so I can really capture that in the art.
For best results, photos should be in as high resolution as possible, in focus and include a clear shot of your pet’s eyes.
