GG's Pets Portraits on Webster Dictionary Pages

There are a few examples of hand-painted art of your pet, painted on recycled vintage dictionary pages. For each pet, I have selected a page that either describes the pet's breed or the pet's name. There is a special meaning hidden in each piece of art ~ unique to the pet owner.  These paintings are hand sketched and painted with acrylic paint right on the vintage paper ~ this is not a reproduction printed on a printer!  

For the long hair chihuahua named 'Kovi', I have selected a page with the word 'extreme', printed at the bottom of the page. According to Google ~ Kovi means EXTREMES in fortune, health and spirituality.


For the Boxer named Molly, I found a page that had Molly in the text.

mol·ly noun \ˈmä-lē\

by shortening from New Latin Mollienisia, former genus name, from Comte François North Mollien †1850 French statesman
First Known Use: circa 1933

Other examples:

Final dimensions are approximately 8" x 10" and will look great matted and framed in either custom frames or standard frames from your local craft store.
Price for each painting, 
(from your photo) is $80. 

This price does not included professional matting or framing, but I will include a heavy card stock and special clear jacket that will protect your art until you have time to frame it. For future references, an 11" x 14" mat will work with an 8" x 10" opening.

These pet portraits on vintage backgrounds, make unique gifts and are environmentally friendly. A one-of-a-kind piece of art for your home, plus they make great conversation pieces for that special someone.

For additional charges, I can photograph your pet and also paint your pet's portrait on watercolor paper or illustration board. 

Watercolor prices are: $95 per pet

$125 for 2 pets for 11”x14” size


(add additional $25 for building or background)
