Patriot Pets

For this new series I’m holding a contest. I’m asking social media friends, customers and followers to submit reference photos of their pet and the one I choose for the first painting will have the choice of purchasing the original painting at 50% off or receiving a giclee print on canvas of the original for free!

For now, Patriot Pets are only available as American or Canadian Patriot Pet, and owners must be residing in North America. Here’s two examples of my idea:

And here’s some examples of a few of the many pet paintings I’ve done:

Here are the photo requirements:

Photo of one pet per photo, and needs to be a close up. A little background around the pet is fine, but he/she should take up approx.  3/4’s of the photo.  Photo should be clear, not blurry, and have a good range of lights and darks, show the animal’s eyes/expression, capturing his/her personality.

To enter, post one photo in the comments of my post on Facebook, Instagram or TikTok about the contest and include: pet’s name, breed if known/applicable, and U.S. or Canada. Then send me a direct message or email with 2-3 good photos (including the one posted) with your username and platform you submitted your entry on.
