- The animal can be canine, feline, exotic, or barn yard.
- All portraits will be painted in acrylic, on 1 ½" deep cradled wood panels. (* The images in this post are 8x10 commissions from the end of 2013 and beginning of 2014).
- I ask for a high-definition digital photograph of the animal. In the unfortunate case when the animal is deceased and only a small photograph of the animal is present, I can try working from a physical picture. (But do not guarantee the results.)
Example of a portrait done from a low definition image:
- I ask that you specify:
-Whether you want folk art detailing over the portrait. (Sides will have it regardless.)
-Whether you want the background removed/what the preferred background color is.
-The base color around the edges.
- A non-refundable deposit of half of the purchase price will be due upon agreement to perform the commission before any work will begin. This may be done through Paypal or personal check.

4" x 4"$25.00
5" x 5"$40.00
5" x 7"$55.00
