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.

      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 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!

                Comments about UncommonGoods Custom Painterly Pet Portraits:

                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.
