Traditional Oil Painting

Amy M., April 2016
Tonight I am just in awe of the amazing talent of Ruth! I am beside myself with the delight of her portraits of Piper and Zala. I will cherish these for a very, very long time. She captured them both perfectly. While my girls sat motionless for hours for their portraits (kidding!), Ruth actually can use one of your favorite photos instead. :) 

Anelise N., January 2016

Oh my gosh... my sweet Baby.... Got me in tears... This looks great, Ruth! I'm so in love with this...Just showed to my boyfriend and he is totally amazed by it as well. You do incredible work Ruth! I tear up every time I look at it (probably 15 times since you first sent me).  I miss her so much!!!!

I am pleased to announce that I am now offering pet portraits!

How to order a portrait of your pet

1. Send me pictures of your pet.
Several photos are needed to get necessary information of color and details. We can discuss what pose will make the best painting. If you are in the Central Florida area, I can visit and take my own photos. A portrait is possible even if your pet has passed and you have only a limited amount of photos available.​

2. Pick your size
10”x10”/12”x12”/11”x14” - $175
(only one subject at this size)
16”x16”/16”x20” - $250
20”x20”/18”x20”/18"x24" - $300
24”x24”/20”x30” - $375

30"x30"/30"x40" - $500
Larger sizes available - please ask for quote.
Any add’l subject add 40%.
30% discount on multiple canvases.

3. Your painting is started with a 50% down payment. Painting takes about 2-4 weeks, drying/varnish time is about 1 week. If you are in a rush, I will do my best to accommodate. There are two options in styles:
    1. Modern mixed media on a collaged background that can include small mementoes. It is painted on a deep, cradled birchwood panel, see detail above. The edges will be painted, no frame is needed. 
   2. Traditional oil painting on panel/canvas that requires a frame (I can advise and help with that).

I can deliver locally, you can pick up at my studio, or I can ship anywhere in the U.S.
