A little more about my painting of "Loki"...
Painted as the second of two Christmas portraits for a client, this commission of a sweet Pembroke Welsh Corgi, was very enjoyable to paint, especially his expressive eyes and wiry coat. The leather couch he is on, presented quite a challenge; since I had not encountered that texture before...but I am always up for trying to re-create elements I am familiar with as well ones that are new to me.
Custom commissioned portraits are available in sizes such as:
11" x 14", 12" x 16", 16" x 20", 18" x 24", 24" x 36", etc.

More about my commissioned portraits...
When doing a pet portrait, my goal is to create a true likeness of your dog, cat, horse, (or other type) that is in the photo, and to enhance the colors and textures, as well as the natural beauty...so that I'm am not just creating an exact copy of the image I see. I want to give you the buyer, a portrait that has a more lifelike appearance of your much-loved furry family member, and one that is also a unique piece of art...after all, you already have the photo, and you are most likely not looking for the same thing in a painting to hang on your wall.
~ Portraits also make wonderful gifts!
~ Your painting will be hand done in oil paint on canvas, and it will take approximately two weeks for me to complete (and about a week before it is shipped to you). I want to mention also, that the quality of your photograph will translate into how fine the quality of the subject will be when it is finished, so I really want to work with you to help you find the right one. I want you to be absolutely ecstatic and completely satisfied with the look of your finished painting.
