    Default Custom Artwork of Horses/ Pets- recommendation and ballpark cost?

    I have seen this topic on the boards before, but I can't figure out a good key word to search. I am looking for recommendations of artists who can do artwork based on a photo of a horse/ pet. I am also wondering about price range. Thanks!

    I can highly recommend Marni Follet for pastel portraiture. If you'd like to PM me with your email, I'll be happy to send you a pic of a piece she did for me. And I'll PM you with details, pricing after I get home and can find her card.

    I had my mare's portrait painted on a large Xmas ornament by Julie Lawther, it was absolutely beautiful:

    I really like Kimberly Santini's use of color and light. She does mainly dogs and cats, but has some horses and other farm animals in her repertoire as well. Her black and white animals come out especially nice (such color!!). A little bit whimsical, but very lovely.

    I just purchased a painting by Jennifer Pratt. She does oils mostly. She has some really nice finessed paintings, but i really enjoy her looser brush-work in her studies (sketches and faster work).

    (edit to add, i just read on her fb that she's taking a break from commissions to work on her own originals for a few months. Excited to see what she will be up to, regardless!)

    And Sally Lancaster is amazing. The fine attention to detail and precision is just remarkable. I could stare at her work for hours in amazement!

    I haven't got a clue on the prices for commissions for any of them, unfortunately. Also with the timing, it might be hard to get something done in time for christmas- so act quickly!

    Coanteen, I love those ornaments she has on her FB. Do you mind sharing how much it cost, and how realistic it was compared to the photo you sent?

    I highly recommend Claire (website below). She's done paintings of all of our dogs and several gifts.

    I had these two done for a friend of mine who lost this mare this year.

    They were done by Colleen Beck out of Texas. The markings are very true.

    Be sure to look at her scratchboard work. Bobbie is a friend and does really nice work. She was recently given the cover of the new Florida Farm manager's directory.

    eventgroupie2 makes a great suncatcher from a picture of a horse.


    We had one made for a living horse, and one for someone to remember her horse by.

    We highly recommend her. And we are going to have her do a sun catcher of us when we get a picture of both of us clean at the same time. If that ever happens!

    Sharon Campbell - she was AMAZING! a little pricey, but she does the painting and her husband does a beautiful job framing.

    When I bought them, the prices were $45 for medium (3.25 diameter) and $50 for large (3.75-4 diameter), and some extra for glitter in the name. Plus shipping.

    This is the ones I got. The photo doesn't really do them justice, but they are realistic and definitely look like Wave

    If your taste in art runs a little towards the more modern and impressionistic (probably not the right words, sorry)

    Www.ctannerjensen.com

    She posts here as CTanner.

    She is working on a portrait of Nanny Pony called "Full Bloom". I am very excited as I do not like traditional portraits or animal artwork in general. I am sure it will be special because Tanner sees past the surface.
