So you want to know about me?

Well, always the best way to find out is simply ask, or better yet get to know me. Promise I won't bite.

I'm in love with life, in love and loved.

I strive to see beauty in the otherwise ugly. I love fun. Spontaneous anything will always get my blood pumping. Music and concert junkie. Nature freak. Have weird tastes in certain things. Art = hobby , science = occupation (someday).

Get to know me. I'll try not to disappoint.

Special Price on Pet Portrait Commission - 50% off

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 13, 2015, 10:12 AM


Hey all!
Now that my studies are wrapping up until the next term in September, I'm looking to take on more commissions. Pet portraits are always a favorite, so I'm looking to bring some life to some fur babies.

I'm looking to start with a new style for busts and facial portraits by utilizing mottled "blurred" backgrounds for a professional look (plus, it always makes the subject stand out). I will also be doing more pieces that incorporate backgrounds, so no worries there.

I'm looking to take one commission right now as a trial piece, at a greatly reduced price.
This will be a bust or facial portrait of a pet (preferably cat or dog), with a lovely mottled background that will complement the subject. This will be done on an 11"x14" canvas panel with acrylics. Normally this type of painting would cost $150+, but the single "trial" slot will be $75 (plus the cost of shipping, would be determined).

So details, for those who don't care for reading blocks of text.

Size : 11" x 14"
Medium : acrylics on canvas panel
Subject : Pet (dog or cat), bust or facial portrait with a mottled background
Regular price: $150+ USD (+S&H)
Special Price : $75 USD (+S&H)

Example of mottled backgrounds

If anyone is interested, I will only be taking ONE slot at this reduced price. Note me if interested! :heart:
