When asked recently to paint a child’s portrait,
I decided I would use pastels.
I had used them for this painting of our neighbors’ dog, Tasha…
here’s that story…
But I felt the need to upgrade my materials;
so I ordered professional grade soft pastels,
and high quality pastel paper in a variety of colors!
(You may remember my recent blog post
regarding my affinity for art supplies😉
Once I got my new supplies
I was ready to tackle this challenge…
and I LOVED it!
Thanks for following along,

How much do you charge for a pet portrait like the one you showed here? What size is it? You are amazing.
Thanks, Ruth:) I can’t remember the size of that painting, but it was either 8×10 or 9×12. I’m working on my fee schedule now, but my house portraits are the same price as animals and people, so you can go by that… 8×10- $250, and 9×12 is $300. I’m working on it now, so I’m not sure if you see it or not. It will definitely be finished by tomorrow night. Thanks, again!
