If there is anything you wish to have painted, even any of my artwork here that is unavailable which you like, It could be painted similarly. I love doing pet portraits, especialy those in memory, which hold so many memories of a beloved pet. All I would need is a photo which can be emailed. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
~~~~~~~~~~ ~My Paintings~ All my Artwork are original paintings. Photos taken with my camera can be slightly different in color then in reality, which cannot be helped. I do try to get my colors as close as possible to those of the photos which I use as reference, especialy in Commissioned portraits, pet or human. Email- KMAP3156@aol.com Thank you, Kathie
