Price, Size & Media Charts
Copper Penny of Shady Ridge
The real value that a piece of artwork holds is not it's resale value, it is in what it means to someone special. Sometimes that can have no price tag because it's more than money can buy. That's the truth. Great art inspires us. The art I create is only going to matter to you, if you help it mean something personal. Tell me the stories, they are important. Tell me the little things, the ironic things. Help me to heal the hurt. Help me to make you friendship immortal- forever. Let's bring them back, if only in spirit. I know you can, no one is really gone if you remember them, in your heart. What I can do is help you show what you want everyone to know: "this is my best friend and I will never forget that they were here. "

The "Heritage"Heritage her·i·tage
1.heritage - practices that are handed down from the past by tradition; "a heritage of freedom"
practice - knowledge of how something is usually done;When a child goes into school and does a report about his "family" it often includes tales from their family's history and the legacy they are leaving behind. Pets are no different. Each pet inherits the knowledge the "parents" have learned from other "brothers and sisters". And even though some fur kids don't go to school it is often their parents who tell endearing amusing and sometimes heart wrenching tales of their furry family. These tales and lessons are as valued today as they were 100yrs ago. They are part of who we are as individuals, families, and communities. So why would you not leave your legacy of wonderful tales and adventures for the next generation? The Heritage allows for just that, a growing story, never quiet complete, but never unfinished. Much like the tale of the traveler, it's not in the destination, but on the journey along the way.
2.heritage - any attribute or immaterial possession that is inherited from ancestors; "my only inheritance was my mother's blessing"; "the world's heritage of knowledge"
attribute - an abstraction belonging to or characteristic of an entity
birthright - personal characteristics that are inherited at birth
background - a person's social heritage: previous experience or training; "he is a lawyer with a sports background"
birthright - a right or privilege that you are entitled to at birth; "free public education is the birthright of every American child"
upbringing - properties acquired during a person's formative years
The Heritage is a piece that is designed to grow as your four legged family grows. The layout starts with pets you currently have (or had and would like to include) then there is a lot of extra room to add in pets as you include them into your family. Simply ship the original with reference pictures back to the artist and I can add them in! At the same time I can touch up the original so the piece is all current, fresh and consistent! This maintenance is included in the price. Prices are based on the above criteria (size, media, number of additional pets, full body or busts, etc)
Why would I want an "unfinished" piece hanging on my wall?
-In comparison to hiring a photographer for each of your pets you will save HUNDREDS of dollars!
Since the parameters can be so wide for these pieces please contact the artist directly for a more accurate quote.
There is no charge for this estimate.
This would refer to a specific scene, place, or the surroundings you have in mind. Often portraits are done without a background as busts or full body poses; however, occasionally owners find they are particularly drawn to one memorable place, and would like it incorporated into their piece.
*A full background is NOT recommended for a "working piece" as the background scene itself will slowly be covered up with your beloved friends, and can detract from the over all feel of the painting.
In order to properly access these prices, it is recommended that if you would like a full background; start with the chart below to find your base price and then add in the subjects as they would normally apply as "Additional subject" from the charts listed above.
You can track the cost of your purchases at any time by checking your cart on the PayPal site.
It will have an itemized list, which you can add or delete items before making your final selection.
A good example of these processes is this portrait:
It may not look difficult but I used 12 different pictures just to get these four cats together in one shot. The background is based on my client's desired description taken during the consultation. I asked her to close her eyes and give me a description of her perfect heavenly sky. Her descriptions gave me a color pallet, tone, and setting for the piece. In designing this background we looked at the fact that the owner would potentially be getting more cats in the future, and that we could later add in more cats as needed without taking away from the overall feel of the painting. This fantastic landscape came from 11 sky and cloud pictures and 7 lawn and landscaping pictures.
So as you see, you as the client have a lot of input as to how the piece gets completed. To see this piece from start to finish please click on the link below:
