A Little Bit about my Oil Portraits and prices..........

I have been painting dogs and horses professionally for over thirty years.

I have won several awards and have painted covers for various magazines.

In order for me to paint a portrait of your favorite friend, I will need several photos of your pet for reference.

 Equally important is an essay on his or her personality . This will help me in creating an accurate portrait of his or her spirit.
