Pet Portraits

 Red the Horse
Jingles the Donkey
Wiley the Dog

 A note from the Customer about her Custom Pet Silhouette:
Hey, Kathy -
I finally got the silhouettes today (Saturday).  I was really sweating it - thought they would come after I left for my trip!  They are WONDERFUL!  Thanks so much.  And thank you for the extra copies of the wedding couple - they can give one to each set of parents!  AND you read my mind about the animal one mounted on larger paper.  I almost called you from Wal-Mart, but decided I would work with what you sent by making a mat for the frame.  See attached photo - I was just walking by and these were on an end cap and I thought how perfect!
Thanks again,

Custom Commission Paper Cuts

This paper cut was made especially for Walleen D. of Kentucky. She wanted a Silhouette of the Twin Spires at Churchill Downs made in a 9"x9" size, in white on a navy blue background. This cutting will go in a guest room that is being redecorated in a Kentucky theme.
Walleen wanted the Spires to be showing straight on, with just a touch of the base showing at the bottom.
 Commission a custom paper cutting at PaperPortraits today!
Just send an email inquiry and photo samples for a free quote.

A note from Walleen:
Hi Kathryn,

I received the Twin Spires today in the mail.  LOVE it!  It's perfect.  I will need to cut the mat a bit to go into the frame, but it's just what I wanted.  Thank you so much. 

My Kentucky room is nearly done.  If you ever come to Louisville, KY - looks us up; you can see your work finished in our room!  :-)

Paper Pet Portrait

This Paper Pet Portrait was made with a compilation of three different photographs. Peanut's owner wanted a special background, including a particular bridge in Washington DC, an outdoor scene by the water, and Peanut facing forward. Peanut's tuft of neck fur was carefully added in as well, as the owners really wanted that feature to show. The piece measures 5"x7", and was made with acid free paper.

To have your special pet's portrait made, please visit my Etsy store on the side bar for basic details!
