New cartoon pet portraits

I painted this cartoon of my Boston Terrier, Sissy, as an example of the cartoon portraits I will be offering. Anyone who wants a cartoon painting done of their pet will be able to choose from a selection of cartoon styles, poses, backgrounds, and accessories. For Sissy I included a bone, which was her favorite toy, and a butterfly as she enjoyed chasing the flying insects around the backyard.

This cartoon portrait is painted on a thin but rigid archival canvas board, my standard canvas for commissioned pieces. High-quality reference photographs of the pet are not needed for cartoon portraits. More than one pet can fit on an 11" X 14" canvas. For current prices and other information, head over to my Order Info page.

Here is Sissy's cartoon portrait beside a painterly portrait I painted of her in 2014. I used the old portrait to get the colors and markings right on the cartoon.
