Pet Portraits by Larry Gekiere


Capture the unique character of your pet in a beautiful portrait

You know that special quality that makes everyone who meets your pet smile? His unique personality? Her sense of play? Those endearing things he does to make you laugh? That special expression she has that makes everyone’s heart melt?

These are the special attributes that endear our pets to us and make them a part of our family and our best friends. And all those qualities are what Larry Gekiere captures in his portraits of your pet, immortalizing their true individuality.

My name is Larry Gekiere and I paint memories. My traditional oil paintings are one of a kind, custom painted on canvas just for you. They will become a precious and lasting memento of a essential part of your life – a part of you –  that you want to hold dear forever.

One of my unique paintings can be a great personal remembrance or a wonderful gift. In addition, if you desire, we can make limited addition giclée prints from your original painting for you to offer to your friends.

(I retain full reproduction copyright on each portrait. But because of the personal nature  of a commission piece, I will not use an image for cards or art prints without the permission of my client.)
