"We think of Melody and smile every day thanks to you" Karen Dietrich - Her pup Melody ( a sweet Bearded Collie) was one of my first commissions.
If you've ever thought about having a portrait of a special pet, celebrate your special friend with a unique type of pet portrait - one of my vintage advertising style paintings.
Commissioned paintings will conform to my general style, so your commission will have the general feeling of the rest of what you see on this site.
One way to decide on a commission is to simply order a painting like a print or painting you see somewhere on my website. It can have the breed name or your pet's name. Colors can be changed or painted like what you see. Products can be substituted.
Colors can be selected for your needs and the product can be based on your interests or something about your pet.
Time to completion is approximately six weeks depending on backlog.
There are a few simple steps:
1. You need to supply several quality dog level photos.
2. Let me know of any background color preferences.
3. Pick a food or beverage for the advertising portion of the painting - something that makes sense for your pet or family.
It can can also be simple. If you like one of my artworks on my website, I can paint you a painting similar to the one you like with your pet in the painting.
If you are unsure about colors or products, I'll be glad to help.
You will be able to see the painting prior to shipment.
50% of the cost is paint upfront and the balance when completed.
Below are a few examples of commissions and some thoughts about them.
These commissioned paintings are painted on stretched artist's canvas. The sides are painted so they look beautiful as is or you can frame them if you wish. They come ready to hang.
