My paintings start at $750 for a one-dog subject, with factors such as size and complexity of the background being variable. Including more than one pet or having a human subject will change the pricing structure.
Can you paint a portrait from one of my own photos?
The painting always comes out better if I work from photos that I shoot. This is most likely for a number of reasons, from my concentration on the lighting, to the fact that I take a ton of photos, and also that I get to meet the pet and get a feel for their personality.
What if I'm not in your area for a photo shoot?
Sometimes I get more than one person in an area interested in a painting, making it possible for me to fly or travel to you. If not, I can give you detailed directions on how to get photos of your pet for me.
What if my pet has passed away?
This situation is always heartbreaking. Unfortunately for the reasons above, I would not be able to do your pet justice in a portrait working from a few older snapshots.
How long does a portrait take to complete?
Paintings take me from 2 weeks to 2 months to complete, depending upon their size. If you are considering a portrait for a gift, please keep in mind that I sometimes have a waiting list.
Thank you and please contact me with any other questions!
