Oil on Stretched Linen
16" x 20"
2" deep stretchers
Painted on the sides, wired and ready for hanging
Oh, Louie Louie, da da da da da da . . . could be yours! A client long, long ago when I lived in Sussex County commissioned this portrait of a Dachshund and never returned to make the final payment. Numerous letters and communications were sent out, including a certified letter, but the buyer never came back to finish the payments and pick up the work. His loss, your gain?
It may not be your exact dog, but if you're a lover of Dachshunds, wouldn't you want to start at those precious eyes and imagine getting licked all over by that tongue? This furry pal, painted on linen on 2" deep stretchers could be yours. Sized at 16" x 20" it's a substantial piece, and since the buyer paid the initial deposit, I'm only asking $450 for the painting - 50% of the full value.
Forever cherish your furry friend in a custom artwork. Simply email me good quality photos of your pup (ideally several different angles, up close and at a distance). Upon receipt of images, I will begin work on a portrait to be painted in oil on a cradled wood panel.
The prices offered on this page are for a dog on a blank surface with shadow - extra details like drapery, patterns or more complex backgrounds, media, and surfaces are extra. Please email me to discuss options.
Framing is available on all portraits.

WHAT IF MY DOG DOESN'T WANT TO STAY STILL?
If your pet doesn't sit for long, not to worry, Jennie can snap a photo and finish off-location or abstract the portrait on location - depending on your preference. Oil portrait upgrades are available - purchase through her online shop and notify her in the purchase notes that you will be coming for a photo session only, that you've ordered a larger portrait to be completed in her studio. You must select a time slot for the photo. This will be the last opportunity to order a dog portrait for completion before the holidays.
Portraits will be drawn on Canson Classic Cream paper and mounted in a mat sized for a ready-made frame. Drawings will be sized at 5" x 7" and inserted in an ivory on ivory double 8" x 10" mat - the mats are acid-free and fade-resistant. Framing will be available for purchase at sitting. Framing will be finished off-location at my studio and pickup arranged with the dog owner upon completion.
Matted Portraits are $55, plus tax (paid for in advance to secure time slot)
Framing will be available for purchase at sitting for an additional price.
If upgrading to a painting, I will roll the $55 into the price of the overall painting.
NOTES ABOUT ARRIVAL & COURTESY TO THE ARTIST and OTHER DOGS:
