Have a portrait painted of your loved pet.

I am working on paintings for the studio. This is so exciting. I am now working on pet portraits. I am having a blast. The house smells with oil paints and the creative energy is soaring. I really can say I have never met an animal I did not like. Humans too many but dogs cats pigs sheep cows horses lion and tigers and bears, oh my, never ever.

Recently I had this amazing person pop into my life and instantly liked her. She lives with a menagerie of animals secretly I am jealous because I would love to live surrounded by furry feathered friends. I do draw a line with reptiles, especially snakes. She told me she had just lost her dog. The love she had for her dog beamed out from every pore and you could also feel the sadness. I was immediately touched and knew I would have to do something.

I had been frustrated with my shop and what I was doing with my art. I had toyed with the idea to start painting pet portraits again. The next time I saw this new found friend I mentioned about my interest in getting back to painting pets and would she like one in memory of her dog? One thing led to another and I am working on a portrait.

But to get the muscle exercised I worked first on a smaller portrait of a very special guy in my life. His name was Woody, or Sweet Woodruff his pedigree name. Woody was my spirit dog. He always could tell what I was thinking and there was not a day he did not give me all the love and joy he could muster.

This is a 10 x 10 inch stretched canvas original oil painting I did from a photo of Woody. I chose to use blues purples highlighted with orange, yellow and light blue. To create the depth I used Paynes Gray with a touch of Umber and Ultramarine Blue. What gives this portrait the emotion and spirit is the eye (or eyes). I start with the eyes and work the rest in from there. The painting is finished with detailing around the eye (s) and highlights were needed.

This is a close up of the face.

Would you like a portrait painted of you pet? Various sizes can be done in many mediums. I am now working on oil paintings and pricing is flexible depending on the subject. How it works is simple. You supply a favorite photo showing your animal and half of the agreed amount of painting. Add a brief story about your pet and I will paint a painting. About 3/4 through the painting I will send you a shot of the work in progress for your approval. Once OK’d I will add the detail work and make any adjustments. When it is finished and waiting to dry so I can varnish the painting you send the last payment. The painting is shipped to you ready to hang along with your photos (if you sent them by snail mail).
