Your favorite Cat: Commission an original 8x10 oil painting


Shipping to United States: Free

Here is your opportunity to have your favorite feline immortalized in oils on canvas! This will be an original oil painting on 8" x 10" 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 send me a picture or pictures of your cats. We discuss by email what would work best for a composition, based on the photos that you provide, and working with my style and themes which you can see by browsing through my images.The painting will take approximately 10 to 14 weeks to complete, as I work in alkyd oils using a glazing method that is slow but results in vibrant translucent color. When it is 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!
