OK, my wonderful wife has put up with my shit for almost 15 years now (January 20 is 15 year anniversary) and her B-day is the 18th of Dec, close to Xmas.

I really, really want to get her something extra special for a gift. I was thinking of commissioning some artwork (either drawing or painting) of this:

We recently lost our first dog (we're cat people, got a dog for the first time last year, lost him too quickly while he was still just a puppy - mystery disease, never found out why he died). My wife was devastated, but we got another dog who has been a great replacement for our first.

I was wondering if somoene here could do one of the following:

Portrait of our new dog (Sparkle) - a playful, goofy, "twinkle-in-the-eye" mischievous bag of fun.


Portrait of Sparkle and her favorite cat, Winter.

Or, my other idea was Sparkle in profile, that goofy smile on her face, but in the background a "ghosted", spirit-like portrait of Skipper (our dearly departed pup) - sort of like he's watching from "above".

I'd like the portrait to be 8x10 or maybe 9x12 size for ease of putting in a frame.

I would gladly pay for your time and work to do this - if anyone here thinks they can do this for me let me know via email (grey2112@comcast.net) so I can send you some pics.

Bump - come on, guys - no one here can do artwork?

Oh I can "do" artwork, but you would be paying me to not see it,

I have always been mixed media,

with mine, you would be lucky to realize it was a dog.

Greywolf- did you google any pet portrait studios in your area? There are a few artists sites that work from emailed pics and specialize in animals.

I DO know a few arfcommers/wives paint, though.

Wish I could help, but I only do cartoons.

Yeah, checked them out - DAMN it is expensive! I'm just a poor college student right now - don't know if I can pump out $400+
