Your cat at Rainbow Bridge: Commission an original memorial 8x8 oil painting


Only 1 available

Like all animal lovers, some of my dearest friends reside at Rainbow Bridge, so I decided to do a series of oil paintings of some of those I miss. It would be an honor to memorialize yours as well, in this sweet, peaceful composition which can serve as a permanent reminder of their precious time in your life.

This will be an original oil painting on 8" x 8" stretched gallery wrapped canvas, initialed HS in black, signed and dated on the back, and coated with spray varnish to enhance and protect the colors. Staple-free edges will be .75 inches wide and painted black or another color that complements the painting. I use only fine archival materials; paints are exclusively Winsor & Newton alkyd oils.

Here's how it works:

You email or pictures of your cat. We discuss by email what would work best in regards to the details in composition and color. The painting will take approximately 8 to 10 weeks to complete, as I work in alkyd oils using a glazing method that is slow but results in vibrant translucent color. When it's complete, I email you a scan for your approval. If you love it, then I can ship it 2 weeks s later (when dry). Otherwise, I'm happy to do edits. Please understand I will complete the painting as quickly as possible but sometimes a painting can take longer...particularly if edits are necessary.
Oil painting is not an exact science and the painting isn't done until it's just right! I want you to love your painting!
