  • the story

Drawn from Nature

Your pet isn't just an animal that shares your home--part of the family. Artist MG Stout understands that, and is ready to help you celebrate that special, four-footed friend in the style they deserve. Based on a photo that you provide, she creates a custom painted portrait that you will treasure for a lifetime.

A dog owner herself, MG Stout understands that each animal has a unique personality, and she works to convey that through her work. Using the photo as a reference, she uses charcoal and pencil to make her initial sketches directly onto the canvas. She then mixes her own custom colors, and uses layers of glazes that help to add an expressive texture to the piece. The final piece is vibrant and tries to capture the essence of what makes its subject unique. This is an unforgettable way to pay tribute to a current furry family member, or to commemorate a pet who now lives on in your heart. Painted in Lorton, Virginia.

              If you are looking for an amazing gift or simply a unique way to capture your pet, this will exceed your expectations. The artist is such a pleasure to work with and takes pride in capturing the personality and nuances of the pet. The attention to detail is phenomenal. Thank You again for the beautiful painting, each time I walk by it I still smile.

                Comments about CUSTOM PAINTERLY PET PORTRAITS:

                I don't have too much bad things to say about this service, overall I was very pleased. Only thing I will say is that- I had the perfect pic of my wife's dog (Maddox) staring out the window catching some sun on a cold ny day. It would have be grand perfection to have the own scene on canvas but the artist only does the pet.
                But don't be discouraged, it's a wonderful idea and gift.
                My wife was both surprised and amazed!
                Thanks again.

                      We display this in our bedroom. We enjoy it very much. Our beloved dog is getting up there in years and this is fun picture of his younger self. It is very well-done and brings a smile to our faces.

                              We needed to send a really great anniversary gift to some friends of ours. They moved far from us and we haven't seen their new home, so weren't sure about decor. All we really had to go on is that they LOVE their cat. So we figured a painting of the cat would be a unique and fun gift. The painting turned out wonderfully, our friends love it and will never forget who gave it to them :)

                              Service and delivery comments:

                              Delivery was prompt and the packaging held up very well. It was shipped to California which I believe is about as far from the point of origin as one can get and remain in the contiguous United States.

                                My husband was turning 50, and I needed a great present. We have been guardians of four dogs thus far, so I commissioned portraits of them. Exceed expectations. MG is great!!

                                  My wife and I just lost our beloved dog pharoah. He was a wonderful pet, friend, companion, and member of the family for 11 years. When I saw this on the website I knew right away I had to have it. The artist did an AMAZING job!! Not only did she truely capture our dog but she even used some purples and blues in him. He was considered "blue" in his breed. Thank you so much for bring our friend home again.

                                            A dear friend of mine showed the artist, MG Stout, a photo of my beloved 11-yr-old little Westie [West Highland White Terrier], Lexie, that I have on my Facebook page and commissioned a painting of her as a 2012 Christmas gift for me. I was just floored when I opened it -- Stout's painting of her is so on point, and so vibrant and colorful and textured and beautiful... I just absolutely love it!! It has a special place in my art collection, and among the family portraits :-)
