Pet Portraits are the Best Gifts!
I have enjoyed creating art nearly all my life, including oil, acrylic, water color, pastel painting. Once my children were grown my interest in painting accelerated, I visited numerous art museums and exhibits. I also took many art classes from Missouri artists, several who were known nationally including classes from a famous dog portrait artist in St. Louis Missouri.
In 2010, I painted pet portraits for my children for Christmas, which they proudly display in their homes where friends can see them, not tucked away in their closets. I'm not sure I'll ever be able to give them a gift they will cherish more.
If you would like to see your favorite pet breed painted, I am happy to receive photo references by email without you being obliged to buy the resulting painting. I can't promise I will use the photos sent but if I do, you the sender will have right of first refusal. This does not apply to commissions where you would want something specific.
If you like cross-stitch or counted thread please also visit my 2nd Etsy shop https://www.etsy.com/shop/MargaretLeeNeedleArt for needlework tools I designed myself and patterns to stitch.
Margaret Lee Rigiel
for custom pet portraits. I also paint vehicles such as cars, trucks, boats, motorcycles. My goal is to create a special portrait you will enjoy and be proud to display.
Every dog is different, my goal is to capture your pet's unique personality from their photos and stories you tell me about your pet. I truly believe knowing more about your pet helps me produce a better likeness of them. Extra attention is taken with your pet's face and especially their eyes. I enjoy seeing them look right back at me as I work along to finish the painting.
Satisfaction guaranteed! Updates will be sent as your painting progresses and prior to shipment for your final approval.
Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
PET PORTRAITS Purchase a custom portrait from my studio using either Credit card, PayPal or Etsy Gift Certificates.
For custom-ordered paintings, a 50% NON-refundable payment must be received before the painting has begun due to the cost of supplies as well as the time and effort put into each piece. FULL payment is required after approval of the painting and prior to shipping.
I work in order of receipt of paid orders for my custom portraits and usually have several in progress at the same time.
My goal is to have each painting complete in 2-4 weeks from receipt of order and usable images. However, it may take longer depending on if it is an oil or acrylic painting and how many portraits are on my wait list.
Oil paint takes time to dry, and colors mixed with yellow take a few extra days... If you would like a painting quicker please consider requesting an acrylic painting.
Depending on the size of the portrait, I ship United States Postal Service First Class or Priority Mail, United Parcel Service and Federal Express.
* will be carefully wrapped in bubble wrap and packed before shipping.
* Oversized stretched canvas may require additional shipping charges
Reduced shipping for additional items shipped to same location in one shipment.
For shipments outside the United States, please contact me prior to purchase. International customers are responsible for all customs fees, etc.
