I have now ordered 6 pet portraits by Mary GS. Four for my husband for his 50th b-day, and now 2 for my daughters who have lost their pets. Everyone loves them. She does a fabulous job of bringing your photo to life!
We couldn't be happier with how the portraits turned out. MG Stout, the artist, captured the images of the two dogs brilliantly. Their personalities shine through in the portraits. The recipient was stunned and moved.

This is a long overdue review - I received this painting over a year ago, and we still love it! I looked at a lot of different artists trying to find the right one to paint our bichon as I wanted to ensure the hair poof would look right. MG did a fantastic job, perfectly capturing our puppy's expression (and the crazy amount of fur). I can't recommend her highly enough.
I love having it on the wall. It makes me happy to see his face! In truth I cried quite a bit when I got it because it meant so much to me. Thank you very much MGStout!
The likeness of my pet was incredible. The colors are vivid and it's such a "happy" piece of art. I will treasure it always!
my daughter lost her cat to a long illness. she had a great picture of her cat that she had shared with me. I sent it in and it was put on canvas for a wonderful keepsake.

Really captured the likeness of our dog.

I bought this for my friend with a standard poodle. Cosmo is one of the coolest dogs you'll ever meet and my friend adores him. I picked a picture off of her Facebook page that showed his beautiful smile and emailed it with the order. The artist truly captured his essence. My friend called me crying when she received her surprise just a couple short weeks later. The only thing I would change is that the artist painted his collars in the portrait and I had stated in the email that I did not want any accessories. But I guess I should have been more specific about leaving them off. Anyway, my friend doesn't care!
Recently, my dog came down with meningitis. We have had quite the uphill battle but she is making a miraculous recovery. So, my best friend surprised me with one of MG Stout's original works of art and I have to say, it was one of the coolest gifts I have ever received. I absolutely LOVE it - it's the perfect tribute to my amazing little pup. I would very much recommend this to anyone either as a treat for themselves or as a special gift for a friend. Thank you, Mary! You rock!!!
I ordered a 8 by 10 face portrait of our Shetland Sheepdog who passed away last year. The artist did a perfect job of portraying her lovely face, especially her wise and beautiful eyes. The portrait was strikingly like our dog. It hangs in our foyer where we can always see it as we move about the house. It is a beautiful painting and even more so since the artist captured the particular essence of our dog.
