This site began offering "Pet Portraits" about 10 years ago. Since then, my portraits site is evolving in somewhat the same fashion as I have, as an Artist. My first Love is animals. I am the biggest nuisance on my daily walk, because I have to stop and greet every dog out walking his or her owner. :-)
You will note, below, that I do also offer portraits of people (as well as people with their pets). Don't be shy about asking for a portrait of your Grandmother, Sister, or "significant other". In order to demonstrate my ability to render a beautiful portrait for you, I am also now featuring a series of Movie Star Portraits, done several years ago, as well as a new line of
much larger, Western Art and Cowboy Art portraits on which I'm presently working.
In keeping with my enduring love of animals, I decided, last year, to begin creating a series of large (about 24" x 36") Wildlife Art scenes. Although the animals which are featured, are the focal point of each portrait, you will note that the landscape, iteself, is just as central to the beauty of the picture. For the present, I will be concentrating on North Americal
The cost of an original, pastel portrait is modest enough, but sometimes may cause potential buyers to say to themselves, "I'd better wait". Substantial creative work has to first be done using Adobe Photoshop. It may involve the use elements from several of your photos. It often involves the manipulation of an entirely different, neutral background, or a landscape
scene. Having completed that much, it doesn't take a great deal longer, to use the series of customized steps that I've developed, using "art plugins", in order to produce a quite beautiful piece of digital art. This can be printed on canvas, to closely resemble an original, oil painting!
...and, in case you're wondering, I happily accept the task of creating beautiful cat portraits and horse portraits! :-)
