PRINTS ARE AVAILABLE ...
I'm offering prints of some paintings for $40 (including tax, shipping and handling). Please go to the PRINTS PAGE for information on which paintings are available and how to order.

PORTRAITS OF YOUR VERY SPECIAL FRIENDS ...
I paint portraits from photos that are supplied by you. It's best if I have several clear photos from which to work. A photo hint: It's good for you to be on the animal's level, so you're looking into his or her eyes, when you take the pictures. Or sometimes, just a candid shot can make an interesting painting; the pig painting (A Pig in a Pool) is a good example of that. The most important thing to consider is whether the photo really looks like the animal you love. If the photo doesn't quite measure up, I'm afraid the painting won't either.

PRICING AND PAYMENT FOR PORTRAITS ...
As an example of pricing, an 18 in. by 24 in. (approx. 457 mm x 605 mm) oil painting of one head on stretched canvas would be $750 USD. Two heads on the same canvas (two views of the same animal or two different animals) would be $1,250 USD. A 16 in. by 20 in. (approx. 406 mm x 508 mm) oil painting of one animal would be $500 USD. I don't recommend going smaller than that, because usually you want a painting large enough to be viewed and recognized from at least across a room.

DRAWINGS begin at $200 USD for one animal at the size of 12 in. by 16 in. (approx. 304 mm x 406 mm).

Upon agreement of a commission, I supply a contract and require half the amount before I begin. I guarantee your satisfaction with the final work or I keep the painting and refund all of your money. The contract restates this guarantee.
