Do you only paint dogs? 

No, I feature dogs, but I can paint cats, horses and other family pets.


Can you frame it for me?

No. I do not offer framing services.  I  only use 1.5" gallery wrapped canvas and I paint the edges as well so that you can put it on the wall immediately. I add a wire across the back, so that it is ready to hang, without a frame.


  Can you paint in a photo realistic style?

No. I consider my style to be loose and painterly, so that the finished product looks like a painting, not a photograph. 


Can I take the image from the painting that I commission to put on a product to sell?

No. As an artist, I retain the rights, with the copyright intact, unless we negotiate a transfer of rights. You cannot use any of my imagery for commercial purposes without permission.


Can I share your illustrations, photos, paintings on my blog or other social media?

Yes, with proper attribution and a link back to my website. Please contact me if you have questions.
