A special note from Katharine
Do you have a favorite animal or a friend whose crazy about theirs? Have a passion for exotic creatures? Love wildlife? If so, a custom animal portrait is just for you. My style art is different than many others you will find. For several years, I have been using the reverse glass painting style in my artwork. This means the image is actually painted directly onto the glass surface and not on an actual canvas. Using photographs of animals, I portray them in my own bright and vibrant pieces. I love to capture the personality of the animal in hopes to display their individual charm. If you look closely at these example pieces, there are no outlines since I incorporate stippling (small dots) into all my finished products. I hope you enjoy looking at my art as much as I enjoy making them.
If you are interested in ordering a portrait of one of any animal of your choosing, you can order a 8X10 inch painting here or you can look at my other size options elsewhere in my shop. I will admit this is my recommended size for it looks nice on a shelf or wall. They are also wonderful decorating a child's room or a nursery. I also do pet portraiture for those who have a fur baby they adore.
About Ordering and the Process:
1. Contact me and let me know what animal you want painted.
2. Let me know if you have any specific requests about the painting--- a roaring lion or baby bunnies sleeping
3. Your finished product will be mailed to you already framed.
4. The entire process takes up to two weeks depending on how many other paintings I have requested prior to the order.
Other sizes are available upon request.
I retain the copyright to all my paintings. I also will sell prints of my work. If you do not want me to use the painted portrait for merchandising let me know at time of order placement.
