A friend asked me what was I going to do with my spare time since I was newly retired. I honestly had no idea how to answer that. It seems one minute you are busy chasing a career and the next retirement has arrived.
She was going to a painting class and asked if I would like to come along. "Painting?" It didn't really interest me but I went anyway. Little did I know I would discover I love painting! Oil or watercolor it didn't matter I was hooked.
Initially friends asked me to paint portraits of their pets but I soon began having requests from other people too.
Currently I paint pets by commission from your favorite photo and complete it in 1 to 2 weeks. Cost depending on the size & media of the piece. $125-200
