A note from Mary about Commissioned Custom Pet Portraits:

Hi everyone! I am am so privileged to be able to paint for a living. Each time I am selected as the artist to paint a portrait I am humbled and honored.

I try my best to pay attention to every detail from the smile in their eyes to their exciting spirits. Your four-legged friend is special and I want to ensure that their portrait is just as. I guarantee every painting will create a lasting memory that you, your family, and friends can treasure in your home and hearts forever.

If you are considering a portrait of your pet (or family member for that matter) and you do not see a listing here on etsy for the size you have in mind contact me and I will make sure you get what you want. Please send me any images you are considering and I will help you select the best possible option for a painting you will love.!

Warm Regards,
Mary

About

Shooting for the stars and "Hanging the Moon"

Hi I'm Mary! and the other guy in the profile picture is Geoff.. my muse ;) We are the creative minds behind Hanging the Moon Studio. I've been a professional artist for about a quarter of a century .. don't know how that is possible but time flies when your having fun as they say.

In 2011 I fell madly in love with Geoff, another creative soul who is brilliant with reclaimed steel and some welding equipment and we decided to pursue our dreams and open a working arts studio in Shelby, NC... we sat around one evening tossing around names and Hanging the Moon just seemed to fit.. as that is exactly what we felt we were doing.

My first year in that studio was nothing short of magical, I flew to Hollywood and was able to meet with and paint celebrities such as Frances Fisher, her daughter Francesca Eastwood and the man with the infamous deep voice Dennis Haysbert.. with more to come! I was asked to paint the first official painting for the American Legion World Series, the first painting of a Banjo to commemorate the Grand Opening of The Earl Scruggs Museum as well as work together with Geoff on a Street art project in Shelby for the Don Gibson Theatre.

In between the projects, while working on private commissions for family and institutional portraits, I spent hours bringing little four legged beings to life on canvas. That is much of what you will find here in our etsy shop. In the last couple of years the popularity of these paintings have astounded me as I watched my Facebook page soar in just two short years from no followers to 124,000 people world wide and climbing each week. .. Come follow us there too, you will always know when new originals are available! www.facebook.com/hangingthemoon.
To date, my pet art hangs in 27 countries!

This past year we closed the doors to our first studio uptown. It was bittersweet saying goodbye to the old building we had transformed into a magical space of creativity.. but we were running out of room! That man that I was hanging the moon with made an honest woman of me and married me in 2013 and we have renovated a most charming and romantic 100 year old home with room on the property to build our own studio. Geoff's metal work is on hold until he has a place to set up his equipment again.. and I'm making do in a make shift home studio dreaming of the place that's coming... So that's the plan folks.. to grow old together reaching for the stars and creating for you every day! Thanks for all the support!
