Companion Animal Portraits
Would you like a colorful, unique and innovative painting of your pet? We have partnered with an artist that is offering to paint your pets, using acrylic paints on canvas. She is offering a variety of canvas sizes and will work with you individually to be certain your pet is captured perfectly.
My name is Cindy Stubbs and I am now commissioning pet portraits. I am Dr. Ben's mother and have taken up painting in retirement from graphic design background. I have attended painting lessons while spending time in Arizona but I am not a professionally trained artist. So while I am charging for commissioned pet portraits, I have kept my prices as affordable as possible.
The process is simple. You select a canvas size then email me a photo of the pet you would like me to paint using the photo guidelines below:
Photos must be clear enough that I can see your pet's eyes.
At this point in my "painting career," I am only painting heads, shoulders and front paws. I do not feel ready or accomplished enough to paint full bodies.
Photos can be taken using your phone, but again must be clear enough that I can see the eyes. Obviously, the more details in your pet's photo, the more details I can add to the painting.
Please let me know if you have specific colors you either like or dislike. I will try to incorporate those colors or steer away from those.
I am only painting in arbitrary colors as of right now. As I progress in my painting experience, that may change down the road. Perhaps one day I will offer painting using more realism techniques.
If you have completion deadlines, please let me know right away. I will meet deadlines as long as they are reasonable. I will tell you up front the amount of lead time I will need depending on difficulty and/or commissions scheduled.
The prices listed below are for one subject (one pet). If you request more than one pet on a canvas, the price will be higher than quoted. I will work with you individually regarding a price up front.
The canvases below are quoted using square sizes only and are for a deep edging (1.5") - usually hung without a frame.
If you prefer a different size than what is quoted below, we can discuss individually.
