Cat paw print

Dogs are one of my favorite subjects to paint. I especially love to paint their eyes, I feel a strong spiritual connection with them. The closeness you feel to your dog is immeasurable, they are such a big part of our lives. They offer unconditional love to us every single day, they are truly our best friends.

Here are some dog portraits that I have painted over the years.

I do pet portraits from your photos. You can order an 11″ x 14″ custom portrait of a your dog in my Etsy shop .

Larger sizes are available too and I also offer gift certificates email me questions.

Here’s the process:

Your portrait will be painted with acrylic paint on stretched canvas.

Custom work will be completed and shipped within 3-4 weeks of receiving good photos of your pets to work from.

A good photo is taken at eye level without a flash. If the pose you want is not bright and clear enough to see your pets eyes, you may submit additional photos.  Each additional pet in the same painting is $25. extra.  Your pets do not have to be in the same photo, I can put them together.

At the start, I will email you a basic sketch for your approval of the pose and placement.
I will send progress photos as I paint to keep you informed.

Once the portrait is completed, I will get your input to make sure I have captured your cat’s likeness before mailing.

Thank you for reading my blog. I will do more dog content very soon.

My name is Greta Milan, I sign my art work gretzky... It's just a nick name. I am a visual artist, I paint with acrylics on canvas, I also enjoy creating digital art and mixing the two mediums. My interests include custom pet portraits, tropical landscapes and vibrant colorful non-subjective abstract paintings and patterns. I am also a artist of good healthy food. I am mostly vegan. I love cooking and I believe that healthy eating does not mean deprivation and sacrifice. I have found ways to make all of my favorites without using hydrogenated oils, processed sugars, preservatives, artificial colors, flavors, etc. In my home we eat vegan pizza, burgers, fries and chocolate shakes, in a healthy version of comfort food. I will be blogging all of my recipes here and I will discuss tips on healthy living for the mind, body and soul.
