Commission master oil painter David Jenks to paint your pet—your best friend.

Commissions for oil portraits will be accepted in the order they are received. Please contact David by email with the image for your painting and your phone number. You will get a timely response to discuss size, pricing, and any other issues.

Smaller oils will be painted on canvas boards, larger works on stretched canvas. The customer will be able to request modifications, if necessary, to the completed painting.

Pricing is normally by size unless there are unusually detailed elements in the picture which require extra time. The following unframed prices are a guideline:


9" x 12"    $600
12" x 16"     800
16" x 20"   1200
24" x 30"  2200

Any larger size is also available.

Prices include a secure wooden crate but do not include shipping.


Payment of 50% in advance will begin the project. The remainder is payable upon customer approval of a digital image of the finished work, which will be shipped as soon as the painting is dry enough, usually a week after it is finished.

Payments can be made either by check or credit card over the phone.
