Jen does a very limited number of custom portraits each year. If you would like a portrait of your pet, here is how it works:

1. You email Jen (or snail mail, if you really really have to) with at least 3 photos of your pet. The photo should be as high-quality and high-resolution as possible. Facial closeups are preferred, with NO space-dog eyes. We need to be able to see the eyes.

2. If Jen thinks that (a) she has time to do the portrait in the forseeable future, and (b) she can work with your photos, she'll get back to you within a couple days with questions.

3. You consult with Jen about the size of your piece, the style of your piece ('pup-art' or 'reflections'), and if there are other specifics (e.g., bright colors vs. realistic colors). Jen arrives at a price estimate and you decide wheather you want to proceed. We'll usually ask for a deposit, which we'll return if we are unable to complete the piece for some reason.

Notes: Jen prefers to work with greyhounds, and will consider other pets case-by-case. Please allow 6-8 weeks for a finished piece, longer during holidays. Jen may or maynot have a digital sketch to show you before the actual painting is begun. For ideas of prices, please see the painting galleries on the website. Reflections-style paintings take considerably longer and are priced roughly double the pup-art style. As with all Big Orange Dog sales, proceeds go to Minnesota Greyhound Rescue.
