Commissioned Pet Portrait

Preserve the memory of beloved pets with a custom pet portrait oil painting

When there is a pet in your life that is loved so dearly, what is one to do?  Starting with a commissioned hand painted oil painting of them is a great place to start! 

An oil painting of beloved pets is a great gift, home décor, or way to memorialize the ones that have been so special to you during their lives. 

Have additional pets that you would like in the portrait? No big deal! Photos for all pets will need to be submitted, they can be together or apart.  If they aren't in the same photo, please submit multiple photos of each in similar lighting conditions. 


Looking for decoration ideas? How do you display a painting like this?

This painting would be best propped on a shelf or hanging on a wall.

FRAMING (Important!): If you would like to frame your painting, please e-mail after placing your order. If this isn't done within 24 hours of placing order, your painting may have been started and no changes can be made. If you decide to frame the painting, don't use glass over the front! Glass chokes out the painting so it can't breathe, which isn't good for oil paintings, ever! 

Canvas or Wood Panel?

I recommend, and prefer, to paint on wood panel.  I feel that I can achieve the best results on the smoother surface.  In the end, it all depends on your preference and the aesthetic look that you would like. Please let me know if you have questions or would like to see comparison photos. 

The details:

Your painting will be painted on a Baltic birch wood panel with 1 inch depth or a stretched gallery wrapped canvas (depending on your selection).  Commissions on wood panels take longer to complete due to time spent prepping the surface. 


All paintings are made by hand with professional artist grade paints and once dry, have an artist grade varnish applied to the surface for lasting protection. Paintings are shipped with the utmost care. 

Please visit Commissions for information on processing times. 

Once you have placed your order, watch for an e-mail within 24 hours from with a link to fill out a questionnaire for your artwork preferences. You can respond back to the same e-mail address to submit photographs or you may submit them now to:
