I will happily paint any animal you entrust to me. By sending several photos and sharing your pet's special habits and personailty with me, it really helps in capturing his or her unique qualities on canvas. I would love to hear all of your ideas about what you have in mind for your pet's special painting.
What do your animal portraits run?
Prices are primarily determined by the size of your painting, and if you'd like to include more than one animal. Please contact me directly at email@example.com and I will be happy to send along a pricelist and current timeframe.
Do you ship across the country?
Yes, I ship primarily through FedEx and your painting will be delivered fully insured. Prices on shipping vary with delivery location and size of the painting. I will be able to give you a shipping quote once you choose a size for your pet portrait. If you happen to live in San Diego, I will be happy to deliver your painting to you myself.
What sizes do you paint?
By taking a look at my gallery, you can get an idea of what sizes I've done in the past. I can paint to almost any size you'd like, however. Popular sizes have been 12x12". 18x18" and 24 x 24. Several folks have commissioned two or four paintings to be hung together--the square format works great for this!
How long does a painting take?
My commission schedule varies, so if you have a special occasion in mind for which you'd like to have a painting created, please email me. I'll let you know my current turnaround time & an estimated completion date.
Will the painting need a frame or any special hardware?
Your painting is delivered completely ready to display. For a modern & versatile presentation, I paint my pet portraits on gallery profile canvas, on 1 1/2"depth stretcher bars. Painted around the sides, your pet portrait looks great unframed. It is wired so it is ready to hang. For a slightly different look, I can now also offer to frame your painting in a gallery style "floating frame". Please ask me for details and pricing.
Can you create a painting of an animal who has passed away?
Yes, this is a wonderful way to commemorate a beloved pet that has passed. If you have even only a picture or two, usually this is all I need to work from to help you remember him or her, in a unique and joyful way.
Do you offer reproductions of your paintings?
Yes, for several of my paintings, I have limited-edition giclee prints on canvas available, as well as archival matted prints on paper. Please contact me to learn if there is a gallery in your area carrying my paintings, or how to request a print from me directly.
Who knows the most awesome cat or dog?
You do, of course! Celebrate his awesomeness and order a painting of him today!!
