While I am getting my feet wet in this new venture, I will be offering two sizes. If you really have your heart set on a size not listed here, please contact me and we can discuss your idea!
All my paintings are painted on framed canvas. If you are considering a portrait as a gift to send, I am happy to paint on flat canvas that can be rolled and more easily (and cheaply) sent. I paint in sizes that are standard and can be framed easily with frames purchased at any local craft store.
11 x 14 $250
14 x 18 $350
One additional animal add $100
I paint from your photographs. Because I need to see the small details in a photo I need a good photo. The best photos are shot outside in the sun, or inside with lots of natural light. I require a large resolution photo of 300 ppi. That lets me resize as I need. If you don't have your photo as a digital file, I can scan it for you at no additional charge. Below you can see the original image with the portrait. Good lighting of the subject makes for a better portrait.
I paint only with high quality oil, and finish with a clear varnish to protect your painting from dust and dirt. It takes about 4 weeks from start to finish, which gives me time to let it dry and varnish it.
