Pet Questionaire - 

Sometimes clients want to get a little creative and want to add personal touches.  Here are some questions that can help make the painting even more special. 

1. Your Pet's name and how you came to have them in your life. Where you live city, country, near water etc.. may help with the painting's setting.

2. Your favorite thing about your pet. Funny and cute things that they do, who they interact with, etc. usually something very unique to your pet is the best so that I can try and incorporate that into the painting. More is better.. funny stories are great to create a work that is really unique.

3. Their favorite thing to do... or a naughty thing that they like to do... when they are being mischevious. ie sit on the bed when they are not supposed to, eat socks, chase cars, catch balls, their favorite toys etc.

4. Their favorite foods. Do they sing? Like to watch TV?

5. Let me know if there is something that you have in mind as the subject matter of your pet portrait.

6. Special tricks that the pet might do.

7. Relationships with other pets if they are included in the painting.

8. Any color preferences you may have with regard to the you like blue, or want the color to pop or blend against a wall color.

9. Anything that I may have missed? Please share and know that this is a collaborative work. You are a very important part of the process. Don't be shy.
