Pet Portrait Details:
I creatively combine my passion for painting, treasure hunting, recycling, repurposing along with appreciation for vintage and found objects- and sparkly things! Once the pet comes to life on the canvas it seems to direct me as to which way it should be embellished
with the unique items that seamlessly become part of the one of a kind piece. Many customers provide special mementos, jewelry, buttons, tags etc. to be added to their painting making it truly special for you. Tradional portraits are also available per request,these paintings would not include added embellishments. I can create preferred background.
The portraits are painted with high quality professional acrylics, on professional gallery wrapped canvas which eliminates the need for a frame, unless preferred. The art is continued around the sides. Preferred sizes to work with are 24" x 24" and 24" x 20" each with 1.5" profile. Other sizes may be available.
To PLACE AN ORDER:
EMAIL or CALL with order information and to get estimate. Minimum price for a portrait is $250
YOU need to provide photos of your pet at several angles. It is very important to provide the angle that you want painted.For example: if you want your pet lying, standing, sitting...take a picture of your pet in that position. The quality of the photo is also very important. Because the subject is not with me during its creation the lighting, shadows and details in each photo will be what I will refer to as I paint.
Take the photo in a well lit area. Outdoors, especially on a bright overcast day, or sunlit area in your home works well. Try to capture the pet's natural coloring and expression that you wish to convey through the artwork. Keeping your pet calm, happy and having fun will make it easy to capture the perfect shot.
Also including a detailed , clear image of their EYES is very helpful- painting their eyes accurately captures your pet's personality and soul!
