Pet Portrait Procedure

An original painting of your favorite pet (or pets) is a great way to celebrate those who always love us no matter what!  All I need is a good "non flashed" photo -- preferably several. You can email them to me or send them by mail. We'll discuss options by email or phone.  I do ask for a 50% non-refundable deposit.  The balance and any shipping charges are due upon completion and your final approval of the portrait.

Your pet portrait will be done on a deep canvas - the sides of the canvas are 1 1/2" deep - with the sides painted it gives a contemporary "self-framing" look. Please specify black or aged metallic bronze for the sides. I can also "wrap" the background color or pattern for an additional fee to be discussed.

I will discuss backgrounds with you.  You'll notice I use some patterns behind many of the pets adding a touch of whimsy to the portraits.  If you see one that you like, it can be done in any color configuration.

Some backgrounds may require additional costs.

I retain full reproduction rights on each painting and may use images for promotional purposes or prints and cards. Your artwork is commissioned for personal use only and may not be used for financial gain

Turnaround time is dependent on the commissions I am presently working on.  I will do my best to accomodate you as much as I can.  When I have finished your pet portrait I will send you an email of it for your approval. Once approved and the balance, including shipping, is paid I will ship your painting to you. Your payment can be made by Paypal or mailing me a check.
