the details

If you would like to order a portrait of your pet, please first send me a message here or email Pets@Heystephtan.com with high-resolution photo(s) of your pet. Tip: A cropped image of your pet's face works best– please ensure that you can see your pet's eyes clearly in the image. Blurry or grainy images make it difficult to capture your furry friend's likeness!

The portrait includes your pet's bust (head & upper chest) on an abstracted colored background. Please specify in your email if you have a color preference, otherwise, I will decide based on what works best for your image. A second animal can be included for an additional cost (though it is not recommended for the 10x10 size).

All portraits are made using artist grade, high pigment oil paints and cold-press linseed oil medium. All portraits are painted on gesso primed 4mm basswood panels with a profile of 7/8". Stretched or un-stretched cotton canvas also available at no additional cost, please email if you choose the canvas option.
