Request a custom order and have something made just for you.
A custom commissioned portrait is a really unique gift, but sometimes you can't get the photos or you'd rather let the recipient design the portrait they want. I offer gift certificates for portraits in any denomination, but usually suggest $125.00 because it is the basic cost of a portrait, one subject in an area of about 10" x 12" depending on the subject matter. (The recipient is responsible for any amount the portrait costs over $125.00.)

And even though I specialize in animals, I also paint people, and several times have painted portraits of people and their pets. I only have a few samples because some customers have requested privacy when the subjects were children and others haven't given permission to be on the internet.

HOW YOU GET YOUR CERTIFICATE
The certificate itself is 8.5" x 11" and features a collage of portrait images with the recipient's and giver's names, printed on parchment cover stock. The whole thing is packaged in a pocket folder and includes a brochure, a letter from me to the recipient and several business cards.The certificate package can be easily mailed or wrapped as a gift and shipped directly to your recipient.

IN A HURRY FOR YOUR CERTIFICATE?
If you need your certificate in a hurry, let me know when you make your purchase, give me the name of the recipient and the holiday/event if any and I'll e-mail you PDFs of the certificate, thank you letter and brochure so that you can print them out or forward them in e-mail. Please make sure you give me the e-mail where you want to receive them, especially if they are a surprise!

YOU HELP TO SUPPORT MANY ANIMAL SHELTERS AND RESCUES
Your purchase of a certificate supports many shelters and animal welfare organizations because I also donate at least a half dozen certificates to benefit auctions every year where all proceeds of the sale go directly to the organization; your purchase helps me cover the costs of creating original art for the winners of these certificates. I'm always pleased to see they auction for more than their face value—in this way, I can "give" more to the organizations than I ever could in cash.
