I’m finding it a little hard to believe it has been so long since I have written! The last two years have been very busy ones although not the kind of busyness that gets much painting done. I have rearranged my schedule and will be devoting regular time to writing and posting here in 2018.
Commissioned portraits are a major way I support my studio practice and I have been doing various commissions. Beginning in 2016 I added pet portraits to my skill set. These examples below show the composition I am using always a 20×20″ canvas with a trompe l’oeil mat cut in a circular opening as the setting for the subject. I enjoy doing these very much and welcome the opportunity to do more. For these pet portraits I have been using photos provided by my clients. Like photographing babies and toddlers the family often has the best photos that capture the pets at their most relaxed, secure and loving moments. You can contact me about my fees and procedures here.
