Each pet portrait by Terry Albert is carefully painted in acrylics from snapshots you provide. I work from your photos and instructions to create an original image that when finished is ready to frame.
There is a small additional charge for more than one animal in the painting. Your snapshots will be returned with the finished portrait. I can also work from emailed photos. I will contact you before I start, to discuss what you would like. I prefer to get several photos, even if they aren't very good. I can pick a good pose and fill in some missing details from the other photos.
My standard size is 11 x 14" matted to 16 x 20 and ready to frame.
1) a head study or full body with a solid color background of your choice, or
2) a head study or full body with a scenic background of your choice. I can work from photos or descriptions of the type of background you would like.
Some ideas: flowers, a garden, in a favorite bed with a toy, in a hunting scene with birds flying in the background, or looking out your window. Look through the galleries on my site to get some ideas, or contact me and we can talk about what you have in mind.
Additional pets in same painting: $50 each
Close-up photos of your pet work much better! Get down to eye level with your dog, cat, horse or bird and try to photograph him straight-on, instead of looking down at him (or her).

Your satisfaction is guaranteed. If you are not happy, I will either fix it or take it back and refund your money. I look forward to working with you!
