Pet portrait commissions are open! 

Every pet owner I've ever known, whether they owned a horse or a fish, or anything in between, loved their pet unconditionally. I think having a portrait done of your pet is a beautiful way to honor one of the most beautiful relationships we can have as human beings - the one with our pet. It would be my honor to paint your pet's portrait.


I'm making it super simple...


  1. The portraits will be done in either watercolor or acrylic paint, or mixed media. What will determine the medium will be what I feel will make the most lovely portrait of your pet.

  2. The portraits will be no larger than 9" x 12". I will be staying within standard paper sizes making it easy for you to mat it and frame it after you receive it.

  3. I'm going to paint them first come first serve. I'm only going to take what I know I can finish in time for the holidays. After that I will start a waiting list for after the first of the year.

  4. The cost of the portrait will be a flat fee of $200. That covers the cost of art materials and my time, shipping packaging, and shipping. I will have to collect tax if you live in TX. Shipping will be included for mailings only in the continental US. If you are in Alaska, Hawaii, or anywhere else outside of the US, I will calculate shipping, VAT tax, and all that other good stuff, before I send you your invoice.


If you are interested in having me paint a portrait of your pet, follow these steps:

  1. Send me an email and attach a photo of your pet. This is going to be my reference. (

  2. I will email you an invoice for the $200. This email will have a link that will take you to a check out page. Once your payment clears, I will put your painting in the cue. 

  3. When I finish your pet portrait, I will email you a picture so you can see it. (I know you're waiting to see it!)

  4. Then I will package it up and mail you your beloved pet's portrait. At this stage I will have tracking information and will send that to you in another email.

"After losing my 11-year-old Labrador, Bella, I commissioned Linda to make a portrait of her. When I opened my mail to the incredible color-pencil drawing of my special girl, I cried. The beauty and detail in the piece perfectly captured the pure love of my Bella".
~ Rachel Webb, collector

"Linda did an amazing job capturing my wife and her new puppy. The portrait was a Christmas gift for my wife. We both love it!"
