I find joy in painting the portrait of a dearly loved pet. The expression on the owner's face, accompanied by the not uncommon tear in their eye, make all the hours spent getting it right so worth it!
I still haven't figured out how to get a Shih Tzu to hold a pose for more than 30 seconds, and many of the furry friends I paint are no longer with their human companions. For these reasons I have learned to paint portraits from photographs supplied by the owner. I will share photos with you as the painting progresses and seek your input on capturing your pet's unique expression. I use only the finest available pastels on suede board, creating a treasure that will last a lifetime when framed under glass. I guarantee your full satisfaction or complete return of your deposit. That's never happened before, but after all, I'm only human!
I appreciate your interest. Take a peek at my Gallery and Pricing and let me know if I can answer any questions. I look forward to the privilege of painting your "Best Friend."
