~ The Portrait Commission Process ~


Creating a portrait of your pet is exactly the same as painting a portrait of any other beloved member of your family.


A photo is chosen, canvas layout options are discussed and agreed upon, preparatory underpainting stages are observed by the client, either in person, or by email.  The client is involved in the creation of the portrait from inception to completion.  The final painting is shipped when the client is pleased with the portrait.


At all times, the client is part of the creative energy essential to make the portrait come alive.

Digital photos of the painting will be sent to you for your approval as it progresses.  A final image will be sent to you for your approval before shipping the finished portrait to you.  Payment may be made by check, Money Order, or Paypal.


The finished oil painting portrait will be shipped to you two to three months after the final composition has been agreed upon.  I paint in the Old Masters Technique - many layers of oil paint.  This is a labor intensive, time intensive technique that cannot be rushed.  I allow 3-4 months for completion.

  • All orders must be paid for in full before delivery.
  • All work is fully guaranteed to your satisfaction.
  • Shipping costs  and sales tax (where applicable) are not included and are the responsibility of the client.
  • Artist owns all copyrights to artwork.


"Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened."

           Anatole France

"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated."

         Mahatma Gandhi

"I have found that when you are deeply troubled, there are things you get from the silent devoted companionship of a dog that you can get from no other source."

                  Doris Day

"Dogs are the closest we come to knowing the divine love of God on this side of eternity.  They love me all the time, no matter what.  Their love, companionship and loyalty are why I have such deep faith in God.  They are God's love in cute, chubby bodies.  Dogs are umbilical.  Dogs are first responders.  Dogs never betray you or hurt your feelings."
