Hello and welcome!
Here are a few guidelines to give you an idea of what I do and how I paint your pets.
I paint in acrylics on stretched canvas. The canvases are unframed and I paint around the sides for a finished look. Please check out the photos on my page for an idea of my style of painting before we begin to discuss a commission.
Guidelines for commissions
I use a photo of your pet to create my paintings. I require a clear photo that indicates the composition you’d like for your painting. Sometimes it’s helpful to have more than one photo (for example, one photo shows a good composition for a painting and another photo might give me a better idea of the colors of your pet). If you have several photos that you like and you can’t choose, I can help you narrow down the choices into what will make a good painting. Emailed photos are best, but if you only have a hard copy I can work with that and return it to you.
My waiting list is currently about 12 months. I will email you with confirmation once you decide to book a painting and then I will contact you closer to the time I start your painting to get details. We will discuss general guidelines that you may have for the painting and then I’ll get started. I can send you snapshots along the way of the development or you can wait until the end and be surprised. Once I reach the final stage I will get your approval. I can do minor adjustments at this stage, but it will be mainly finished. Once I receive payment from you I will ship your painting.
Note: These prices are effective 2/12/14. If you booked with me prior to this you will receive the old prices. This price list is just to give you an idea. I can do bigger sizes and other shapes, including the atypical tall, horizontal, or square shapes. Let’s discuss the best composition! In general, each additional pet in the painting is 50% more. Same goes for very detailed backgrounds. Payments can be made by check or PayPal. Shipping is not included in the price of the painting.
