Classically elegant animals to enhance your décor
Mr. Pugsley was most likely dressed in his finest attire when he commissioned this portrait around the time of the American Revolution. Only the most well-to-do Pugs would likely have sat for their portraits. Owning such a piece was a status symbol. He might have been visited by an itinerant portrait painter, who traveled from town to town, exchanging his painting skills for room and board. Okay, no not really. I painted this, but I was inspired by this true bit of American portraiture history.
About the paper prints
The smaller prints; 5×7″ and 8×10″, are reproduced onto high-quality gloss copy paper. It’s not a thick paper, but the reproduction quality is fabulous. I ship them in a flat envelope from here (Massachusetts) quickly, often the same day as they’re ordered. There’s no tracking on these smaller prints.
Larger sizes; 11×14″ and above, are printed on thicker, high-quality cold pressed paper by my partner company in California. Production time is 3 business days. They’re rolled and shipped in a tube. There’s tracking for these prints. I’ll let you know the tracking number when the package has been shipped.
About the canvas prints
Canvas prints are made by my partner company in California. They have a protective coating, and can be cared for with light dusting. They’re made to last 100 years. The canvas wrapping around the 3/4″ sides are printed with a color that’s complimentary to the painting, so the portrait can be hung without a frame.
Production time is 3 business days. They are shipped in a box. There’s tracking for canvas prints, and I’ll let you know the tracking number when the package has shipped.

Frequently asked question:
Can you put my pet into one of these prints?
No, there’s a different way to get your critter into a portrait, just not that way. These prints are reproductions of portraits I painted by hand, and because I don’t do digital artwork, I wouldn’t add a photo of your pet onto a print of one of my paintings. But I WOULD paint an original portrait of your pet, and it would be SO much fun!
