I specialize in custom portraits of people and pets. Portraits generally take 8-16 weeks to complete. I prefer to have a personal meeting with the subject(s) for a photo session. However, I will gladly paint from a favorite photo (or photos) that you provide me with. I often scan and print several copies of different angles to help me capture the essence of a subject's appearance. It is a magical experience to watch their character grow out the canvas.
