Pet portraits of your loved ones for you loved ones
Who do we sing to? Who protects us? Who adores us beyond reason? Our pets!
Dogs and cats have been my life's companions. As a proud pet owner since age five, I've always drawn and painted my pets, integrating their whimsy, curiosity, napping skills, play things and love into each piece. Striving to capture the expressions of love and loyalty, I contract to do their portraits.
I don't paint your pet; I paint who your pet is, what your pet dreams.
TERMS: A painting in acrylics of one pet on a 16" x 20" canvas with a simple cherry or oak frame. You will supply me with several photographs and share stories of your life with your pet. Whenever possible, I will visit your pet at your home. The painting will be completed in my studio. Upon completion, you may come to the studio for pick-up. If you aren't living in the Tallahassee, Florida area, shipping expenses will be added to the final payment. If you're a Florida resident, applicable state sales tax must be added.
The cost is $575. A deposit of $300 is required, the balance to be paid at time of pick-up or, prior to shipping (delivery costs will be added to final bill).
If you wish to have more than one pet per painting, or a smaller or larger size, additional costs will be negotiated. I accept VISA, Mastercard and PayPal.
