Pet Portrait on Paper 8x10"

Painted with artist paintbrushes on high-quality watercolor paper or on canvas, you can clearly see all the strokes and layers! All personal pieces are signed by the artist on front and on the back. Paintings are carefully wrapped and sealed for transit to ensure safe delivery.


HOW DOES IT WORK?

After deciding on a size and completing your purchase, I will be knocking on that inbox of yours in no time (Within 24 business hours, actually). I will email you with further instructions to keep you fully informed and get that proverbial ball rolling. Open communication is key, therefore, your input is invaluable.

PHOTO REFERENCE

I will start by asking you for photos. Because I work directly from your photographs – as you may know, animals do not always sit still very well! Therefore, the more you send me, the better. Natural light and clear, detailed images are ideal, and high resolution imagery is best, but not necessary. I have been able to make portraits work from cell phone photos and Facebook photos without a problem (examples here). Photographing your pet on a hard surface (eg: hardwood floors or concrete) is not only ideal, but it will allow me to see those paws, too!
Once we have agreed on a final layout, you’ll receive your finished portrait within 4-6 weeks. (For multiple custom pieces, additional time may be needed.) From payment to mailbox, I want to work with you to create a piece that meets your vision!

DO YOU PAINT MULTIPLE ANIMALS?

I am happy to put your pets together in one portrait, either from one photo or with several separate photographs if needed.

DO YOU ONLY DO CATS AND DOGS?

Absolutely not. I have a wide range of subjects that I paint, and that goes for my pet portraits as well! I’m always excited about something new, so send me whatever animals are dear to you!
