Traditional oil painting, painted on stretched canvas with top of the range Michael Harding Oils and Mediums. Our custom pet portraits are created with love and attention to detail, capturing your pet’s unique personality and spirit.


Please make sure that you have filled in the commission form to confirm your contact details and specific requests for the custom portrait prior to making your purchase. There you will have submitted your photos that will be used as reference for your pet portrait. 


A digital mockup of the composition and colour study will be sent to you via email to confirm that you are happy with the composition of the painting before my work commences. 


Please be advised that by ordering a commissioned work by Melina Maree Art, you are aggreeing to commission terms and conditions, fully listed here.

While wait times will vary dependant on the amount of orders I have, typical process times from composition approval are below:


Approximate Time Frames:

Traditional Oil Painting (Stretched Canvas) - Painting may take up to 6 weeks from commencement, to allow time for the oil paint to dry between layers, varnishing and full dry time to allow for safe shipping and handeling.

If you need the painting sooner that this, I can also use acrylic paints, which will have virtually the same effect and lead times between 2-4 weeks. 


If there is a particular date that you need the commission by, and are unsure of lead times, please nominate a date that you need the piece by in the commission enquiry form, and I will be in communication with you to let you know if this is a possibility.


Please be advised that in order to meet rushed commission dates, additional costs may apply for added workload and express shipping charges.
