Pricing and Process
I typically charge $250-$350 for an 8x10 or 9x12 portrait of a single pet on a simple background. I work in oil, pastel, colored pencil, charcoal or graphite--whatever suits your needs. Special requests such as multiple pets, larger sizes, or detailed backgrounds, are welcome and can be arranged.
The most important aspect of getting your perfect pet portrait is to provide a high quality, detailed photo to work from. Many times a photo taken on a cell phone is fine, so feel free to text or email me what you have and we can discuss options. Photos taken at the pet's level, preferably outdoors in good lighting, work best. However, many of my customers are working with photos of a pet who has passed away, and I will do my best with whatever photos you have available.
Once the painting is complete, additional prints, note cards or coffee mugs may be purchased to share with family and friends.
