ACRYLIC ON CANVAS PORTRAIT COST and ORDERING INFORMATION
The cost for an Acrylic fine art Pet Portrait is dependent on its size, its composition, the background detail and how many animals are portrayed. I usually work in the following standard sizes : 11 x 14 in., 16 x 20 in., 18 x 24 in., 22 x 30 in. and 24 x 36 in. Of course, special sizes can be executed as well. The price schedule below includes the following: One animal depicted from the chest up with a simple, colorful and ambiguous background. Your Pet Portrait will be painted with the finest Acrylic paints on a quality canvas which will be stretched on wooden stretcher bars. The finished painting will have a “gallery wrap” appearance meaning I will paint the sides of the piece as well so it will be ready to hang as soon as you receive it. A frame is optional.

One HALF of the total portrait cost is due upon the agreement of the commission. This half is of course refundable minus the cost of materials purchased , and compensation for any photo session time. A refund has NEVER been requested, and I do not ever expect it to happen, as my clients are ALWAYS thrilled with my work. The remaining balance will be due upon the acceptance of the finished piece.
Payment options include: Cash, Check, PayPal, Credit Card (thru PayPal)
Please allow three to six weeks for completion and viewing of your finished Pet Portrait. This of course is an approximation and will depend upon my work load at the time of your order, and I will quote you an approximate finish time then. Orders that need to be completed before my time approximation will cost more.
I will paint your Pet Portrait using photographs. One in particular which best portrays your pets personality, special traits and also accurate coat and eye color. At least 3 to 4 other photos will be needed for further reference.
I would like to meet with both you and your pet, this will help me connect with and learn the most that I can about your animal. We can also discuss at this time the sizing, composition, and final cost of your painting. Plus I just like to meet animals!
You may provide the photos if you have a few, including of course the specific “one” we need for the portrait. If not, I would suggest that I photograph your pet, then print out the good options and we can decide on the appropriate picture together. I usually learn a lot about an animal during this photo session, so I would recommend having me handle the photographing.
When I finish your Pet Portrait I will deliver it to you, The complete canvas will be painted including the sides. I will attach a hanging wire to the back and the piece will be ready to hang immediately. You can of course, at your leisure, have your Pet Portrait framed. Many of my clients, although, hang their painting without one.
Please call or Email me to set up a meeting and a photo shoot!
