Winter Raffle: Win a Free Pet Portrait!

Every quarter a winner will be randomly selected and awarded a FREE pet portrait oil painting of one pet, sized 8″x10″ or 11″x”14 (winner’s choice). These paintings will be completed with the same high-quality materials and high standards I apply to all of my commissions. I use traditional painting techniques similar to those used by the master artists of the 15th century and artist grade Gamblin oil paints. The painting will be on a warp resistant MDF panel with a 3/4″ profile. These panels are ready to hang as is or can be framed.
