Custom Painting Info and Pricing

Due to a high volume of custom orders, the lead time year-round is between 7 to 8 months before a custom painting is completed.


The process:

All custom paintings are created on canvas, also note that you may choose to create any color pallet you wish, interchanging background colors, subject colors, or both.

Initially, a down payment of half of the full amount is processed, this includes half of the shipping. The deposit holds your position in the order to be completed. After receiving photos of your dog via email and at the same time, communicating what colors and style you wish to have, a "full color" preliminary sketch is painted and sent back to you via email for your approval. At that time you may make any changes within the design that you prefer or review it with different background colors of your choice. Upon your approval of the preliminary design, the other half of payment is due, it is then painted to canvas and shipped within the time frame agreement.


There are two different types of paintings. The first consists of oil paint on canvas, finished in a UV protective clear coating. The second version consists of the initial oil painting on canvas plus an additional application of automotive metal flake (sparkle), finished in a high gloss resin top coating which magnifies the metal flake and protects the piece in a variety of ways, including UV.

Metallic Flake Canvas Examples

Note: The video below does not fully show the depth of the automotive metal flake as the colors and sparkle do not entirely translate through photos or video, the effect is washed out by approximately 50% through the camera eye. It must be viewed in person to capture the full effect of this application. This understanding and a bit of imagination is helpful when viewing the video.
