    I’m very glad I worked with puci (Darlene) for this painting! She was helpful throughout the whole process and always quick to respond after I messaged her. During the brainstorming session when we were reviewing multiple pics to choose she gave her own input on changes she thought would work well, but also left the final decisions to me.
    She was up front about when she would be able to start the work, and finished it exactly according to the schedule she communicated to me in the very beginning. She sent me pics after the painting was done and before she shipped it out, and I was very happy with the finished product!
    Overall she was a pleasure to work with, delivered the type of painting I was hoping I would get, and I would recommend to others.

    There’s no way to fully convey how amazing this portrait is and how wonderful the entire process was. Etsy is full of talented painters doing nice pet portraits, but Darlene is on a different level entirely. She’s a pro, a master. More importantly, she’s very sweet, great to work with, and her heart is in the right place to be doing such important portraits.

    We recently lost our beagle Olive, but Darlene’s painting is so lifelike and full of personality that it feels like Olive is back with us. She captured Olive’s essence, and that’s an amazing gift. If you’re looking for someone to paint a portrait of your furry child, stop looking. You’ve found her.

    Aside from my wife’s wedding ring, this is the most worthwhile purchase I’ve ever made, and I’m pretty darn enthusiastic about seeing others have the same awesome experience.

    Incredible artist to work with & final painting was even better than I imagined it would be -- and done by working with photos that weren't ideal to create from. Thanks!

About

Is YOUR beloved next up on my easel?

Was it my childhood best friend Alfie (the long-haired Maltese Poodle "hippy dog" of the 70's) who inspired me to take my sketchbook into the dog park? --and then decades later inspired me to turn my paintbrush towards the realm of pet (and people) portraiture? Maybe. The love of a good dog can do that to a person...

I've been a professional fine arts painter for a looooog time. And, since that day in July 2007 (when I sold my first 8x8" custom pet portrait painting), I've enjoyed working with hundreds of people from all over the world to portray their loved ones (pets AND people) in oil paints. I can paint your beloveds within simple or elaborate backgrounds, wearing all sorts of fun costumes (or not), in any size you'd like from 8x8" & up, and even when the only photo(s) you have are lacking in clarity.

I'd love to have YOUR beloved on my easel. Contact me anytime with your painting ideas and to find out about my current turn-around time. Thanks!!!

It means a lot to me to know the level of joy I'm told that my paintings provide (and also to know that my paintings even bring some comfort when the beloved pet is absent). Each of my oil paintings are hand-painted by me. The spirit of the pet that is imbued within the oil portrait is largely due to the quality of my brushwork --that I've been honing for decades. I've been a fine arts painter for... a long time! with collectors worldwide. Your satisfaction is just as important to me as the pride I put into my work, and I look forward to working with you on your special oil portrait paintings. A BIG "Thank You" for giving me the opportunity to paint your beloveds!
