This listing is for a portrait painting of one pet. 


5x7 inch panels will be painted in gouache unless otherwise requested.


FINISH: All paintings are painted using archival material. The oil and acrylic works will be varnished (to ensure your painting will last for decades to come) and will come wrapped in glassine paper.


TIMELINE: Most portrait paintings take about 2-3 weeks to finish once they are started. Sometimes, there is a waitlist and we will let you know the rough estimate of when we can get started on your painting. If you have a specific “need by date” please reach out to us, and we can let you know how many paintings are ahead of yours and if we will be able to meet your deadline. Oil paintings usually take an additional 2-3weeks to ship (because they take longer to dry before they can be varnished). For this reason, we recommend to start your order at least 2-3 months before you need it. Not always, but in certain cases, rush charges may apply. Any painting that is a “rush” order would be painted with acrylic, because it will dry and be ready the fastest.


ACRYLIC vs. OIL: Both of these mediums will give you a traditional painted portrait look. Oil takes the longest to paint and dry. If you want the most traditional look, oil painting would be recommended. Generally speaking, it is very difficult to tell the difference between a dried oil painting and a dried acrylic painting and both are archival quality (meaning they should last for many generations when kept under the right conditions).


WATERCOLOR/GOUACHE: These mediums create a softer, more “airy” looking painting.  Gouache is basically a thicker, less transparent form of watercolor, and we often use this in my watercolor paintings, as well.  These types of paintings can usually be done the quickest. These are done on a high quality  watercolor paper or an artist panel (a flat board made specifically for art). These can be framed in standard frames. 

Pet Portrait (Commission)

  • Pet portrait paintings are made to order just for you.

    After you place your order, I will reach out to get the photo(s) for your pet portrait and let you know an estimated start/completion date. If you need it by a certain date, please let us know. We will let you know if we can accomadate rush orders. Once the painting has been started, it is fully non-refundable. If a pet portrait has not been started, then it is 100% refundable. Please reach out as soon as possible if you decide to cancel to ensure the painting does not start.

    A payment helps secure your spot on the wait list for a commission. If a wait list is longer than 6 months, then commissions will be closed until the wait list can be cleared up. 

    If you have any questions, please contact
