folk dog art commissions

get a custom folk dog painting! pricing for custom folk dog art depends mainly on the size of the canvas, although there are a few other factors as well. the best way to get started is to email me and let me know what kind of dog(s) you have, and what size painting(s) you'd like. once the canvas size is settled, all it takes is a few good photos to get your folk dog painting going.

"Abby really captured the spirit of our dogs. She provided good quality pictures along the way to give us an idea of how it was going to turn out and any suggestions or comments that we might want to make. Interestingly, her painting has made me look at one of our dogs differently as she captured an asymmetry in her markings that I had not noticed before and I find quite beautiful. I guess you could say that her paintings have changed my view of the world." ~Michael -- Newton, MA
