As I shared with you back in April, I offered up a gift certificate as a donation to the Kibble and Cocktails event to benefit DFW Rescue Me’s Justice Fund. A lovely lady was the lucky bidder and commissioned me to paint a portrait of her beloved Tracker. And she wanted a custom oil painting just the right size for her favorite bookshelf.
The Custom Oil Painting
This is Tracker. Handsome fellow isn’t he? A beloved 9-year-old bloodhound whose owner was kind enough to contribute to DFW Rescue Me’s fine cause. She wanted a custom oil painting that would fit in a small space, on a bookshelf where she could see, and enjoy it, often.
Here you can see the photograph that I was provided to use to create the portrait of Tracker. The portrait itself is an 8 by 10 inch oil on canvas. Paintings this size are perfect to position on a mantlepiece, to join other photos or memorabilia on a wall, or, as in this case, to be positioned on a bookshelf. I also create 6 by 6 inch oil paintings, which are very useful in groupings, but are normally just of the head of the subject.
I would love to hand paint an 8 by 10 inch or a 6 by 6 inch portrait just for you. Have a custom oil painting in mind that you would like in any size? Just complete this form. If you have any questions, just contact me via email or call me at (214) 405-1834.
If you represent a charitable cause that you would like for me to contribute a gift certificate to, feel free to also get in touch via email or call me at (214) 405-1834
And a big THANK YOU for reading my blog!
