Custom & Portraits

Custom paintings of any species, at just about any size!  Birds are my specialty, but I paint many different animals.  Please look over the general pricing and sizes, then contact me at canvasdove@gmail.com and let me know what ideas you have, and the size/background/framing you are interested in.   We'll work together to plan the perfect painting within your budget.  Once a project is planned, I require a 50% deposit before beginning, with the remainder billed upon your approval of the finished piece. Orders are usually complete within a week or two, depending on my schedule and the complexity of your project.

Each listing in this collection has more detailed information about the types of custom projects I offer, and examples of past work.  Costs are generally comparable to my similar already-created works.

Custom process:

1.  View my custom information and examples to get an idea of the available styles and options.

2.  Email me at canvasdove@gmail.com with your budget, size range, and ideas of how you'd like your piece to look.   Also send photos if it's a pet portrait.

3. We'll discuss your project and I'll create a sketch.

4.  Upon approval of the sketch, I'll create a 50% deposit listing for you to purchase (website accepts credit cards or paypal).

5.  Usually within a week, I'll send photos of the nearly-complete painting before I add the final details.  At this point I can make minor alterations.

6.  Upon your approval of the finished painting, I'll create a 50% balance listing for you to purchase, then I will varnish and ship.
