Shaggy & Mylie, Commissions

SOLD


Commissions have been filling up my studio time these past couple of weeks but I certainly am not complaining! These two were completed this week and instead of writing two blog posts, I decided on just one. I need to hurry and complete another dog commission! I'm really enjoying this change. It seems this is the only time of year I get to paint animals anymore so I'll just take it as it comes and go with the flow.

Don't forget, if you would like to have your pet painted, an 11 x 14 on canvas is $200 and an 8 x 10 is $175. I can't guarantee regular mail shipping will get them there for Christmas, but courrier can be arranged. Mind you, an 8 x 10 done on masonite ships quite nicely and inexpensively in a bubble mailer, regular light parcel mail.  Contact me!

Ralph, Black Lab Portrait

Hello art lovers, I'm changing things up a little today. It's been a long time since I've posted an animal artwork, but now that the holiday season is approaching, this means commissions. I will not be posting daily paintings as often for the next little while in order to push through these commissions in time, but I will try to get some in.

Painting Ralph was bittersweet. Ralph passed away a year and a half ago, so it's always so important to me to capture someone's beloved pet in the best way possible. Ralph's human mom gave her seal of approval and loves the painting, as do her boys. This pleases me immensely. I want to be sure that a pet portrait truly reflect the animal's spirit and brings joyful memories for years to come.

I'm working on another dog portrait and should have a new painting to share this week unless the owner would rather wait until after Christmas. I will keep you posted! If you want your pet captured in a special portrait, just contact me for information. The fee is $175.00 for an 8 x 10 oil or $200.00 for an 11 x 14 oil, plus shipping. Larger portraits can be arranged.

I hope you enjoyed this painting, and until next time, thank you for stopping by! :-)

Apple & Copper Pot Painting of the Day

I hope everyone had a wonderful Labour Day weekend.  I took time off from my labours and relaxed for a bit, although I did begin a larger painting.  This little treasure was painted today for my daily painting.  I found this old copper pot a few years ago at a second hand store and it's such a great little thing to add warmth and life to paintings.

This painting is available through auction on eBay by clicking here.
