This listing is for one pet portrait painting, custom painted from a photo you supply, on Strathmore heavy watercolor paper (9x12, 11x15, or 12x18), with a blank background (may contain a shadow if the composition calls for one) and enough blank room for a mat - or with the mat included for the 9x12 size only, at your preference. The photos show a few examples of commissioned pet portraits. A pet portrait also makes an awesome, uniquely personal gift.

If you'd like a different size than those listed, or more than two pets depicted, or have some other preference, message me for pricing and I'll create a custom listing just for you! 

If you would like sugar skull embellishments in pen and ink and acrylic on the custom painting, I'm happy to do that! In that case, I will deliver the original, unadorned painting as well as an 8.5x11 sugar skull, so you will receive two finished products.

I will happily paint commissioned portraits of any species of pet: dogs, cats, rabbits, horses, moose, deer, fish or more. If you keep a baby buffalo at home, I'll paint that for you too! All I need is a good-quality image, showing the animal in the exact pose you'd like for the painting. I can include two or more pets in a single portrait from different photos, if your furry friends are not the most patient at posing.  Please keep in mind that the final piece is based on the quality of photos received!  Feel free to send several photos if you're having trouble deciding.

Paintings typically take approximately 5 weeks to complete from the order date. If you need it sooner, please let me know, and I will try to accommodate your timing! The painting will be signed in the bottom right-hand corner. All copyrights reserved by the artist.

Paintings will ship wrapped in a waterproof cellophane sleeve, along with pieces of stiff cardboard so it won't bend in transport.
