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 a beloved pet 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. 

 To make it extra special:

The back of the painting has a hand-stamped metal tag with the pet's name on it

Option to add a video of the painting process 


Adding Flowers to your portrait:

Please note that if you would like to add flowers to the background or border, there will be an additional price. 

about commissions

Thank you for your interest in a commissioned oil painting! I’m so happy that you are here and this can be such a fun experience!

I am happy to offer the ability for commissioned paintings of pet, animals, and floral art.  You will find that some listings are available for this; however, if you have a particular size, design, or subject matter that you would like - please reach out!  I am happy to take time to discuss any potential commissions with you! 


Here are a few things to know about the process:

  • All artists have a specific style in their art. Please review my body of work to make sure you enjoy my style and that it is something you want in your home! If there are some “favorites” of my paintings you see, send them my way! It gives me a great feel for your style.
  • Please message me or e-mail me if you aren’t sure about your photo. I will give you my opinion on if it will make a good painting or not. Would you prefer a phone call? I am happy to chat with you, just let me know your preferred method!
  • Payment is due in full before I will begin your painting.
  • I require that you e-mail me your reference photo (if applicable) to ; for most pet portraits, I will send you a survey to complete at this time.  It will include information about background color, leaving a collar in, etc.
  • Once I have finished the painting, I will send you a photo (while it is still wet) via our correspondence method we have been using (e-mail, Messenger, text, etc) Please review the painting, within 24 hours, to ensure you are happy with it. I can still make minor adjustments at this time. *Note: after 24 hours, I will no longer be able to change anything in the painting. Your approval of the photograph of the painting will serve as an acceptance of it.
  • Your painting will take about 14 days (sometimes more or less depending on weather and amount of layers on your painting) to dry and then varnish will be applied to it.
  • Once the varnish is dry, your painting is ready to go home!

Commissioned paintings make wonderful gifts and they can fill up quickly as we approach Christmas time.  Allow at least 4-6 weeks for paintings under 12 x 16 inches to be completed. For larger paintings, processing time can be up to 5-7 weeks.  Please note that during the busy season (October to January) commission availability will become more limited and processing times may be longer. Ordering as soon as possible is the best plan to ensure your painting arrives in time! 

If you have concerns about a deadline, please contact us directly.
