Pet Portraits

A Pet Portrait by Shelley Lowell is a Cherished Work of Fine Art

Shelley creates her pet paintings in oil paint with a wax medium using archival cotton canvas, which has been gallery-wrapped around the sides of thick stretchers. Linen canvas can be used upon request. Some clients specify another medium, for example oil pastel on paper or a pencil drawing. Shelley paints the sides of the painting as well. Each painting comes ready for hanging with a wire on the back. These paintings do not require frames. Paintings can also
be done on regular thin stretchers so they can be framed in the traditional manner. The choice is yours. Just let Shelley know what you want.
