Oil Pet Portrait Stories

Cat Portrait of Ginger and Maggie

Welcome to the cat portrait of Ginger and Maggie.  Irene contacted us to see if we could create an oil painting of her two cats Ginger and Maggie. Sadly Ginger passed away suddenly Irene sent us this beautiful email which you can read below. We often hear about our clients visiting our website daily and weekly watching everything that we are doing. Especially our blog, which is a great place to keep an eye on! Clients seem to do this while they re deciding on exactly what they would like to order.

….I have been looking at your website for a long time, ever since my precious girl, Ginger passed last March. Her littermate sister, Maggie, was her best friend and she grieved for a long time after Ginger’s death. So, this is why I would like to have an oil portrait of them and perhaps their favorite toy

Irene emailed us all of the photos she had of Ginger and Maggie. We spent a long time creating a mockup trying to get them sitting or laying together in a pose. Irene had requested for them to be both together. We used a number of photos to create this composition and consequently came up with a beautiful scene below, even getting one of their favourite toys in the scene too!

The portrait was painted by Nicholas on an 18 x 14 size Italian Linen canvas. Nicholas has created beautiful soft strokes in Ginger and Maggies fur, the whiskers really create a very three dimensional feel to the painting. Irene and her husband Bob were delighted with the portrait and you can read a lovely email they sent once unwrapping the portrait…

Dear Melanie and Nicholas,
We are very grateful for your wonderful care of us and to Nicholas for creating such a miraculous painting of my two loving girls. When we received the bundle and my husband and I opened it, I started crying and the only words he was able to say was “Oh wow!”. It truly is magnificent and as you said, the photos of the painting do not do justice to the beauty of this painting in vivo. I am hoping that we can have Tony, my big boy, pose for a painting of his own. Maggie will probably accompany him because she is everyone’s friend, ever caring and loving girl.
Thank you so much Melanie! Thank you very much dear Nicholas!
Irene and Bob
