Paintings are original acrylic on canvas and are based completely on the photo provided.

The first step in the commission process is to choose a really great photograph.  The photo should have good lighting and be very clear and focused.  It should be taken at the dog’s eye level.

It is especially important for a very dark or black dog to have the sun or a flash hitting directly in the face or just off to the side.  This will help to enhance the details.

Head shots lend themselves to expressing the most personality, but a great pose can make a very interesting painting and if the photo is not a close-up I can crop it.

The best photos are those that show who your pet is to YOU; drooling mouth, hanging tongue, laying with back on the floor, or lolling on a favorite chair.                 716-397-0266
