Memorialize your beloved pet forever with a realistic pet portrait! All portraits are hand painted with professional quality acrylic paint on 1.5″ deep, gallery wrapped canvases (no need to frame!). A high-quality photo of your pet is required, though a photo session can be arranged in the Atlanta area for an additional fee. Portrait prices are for bust only (head and shoulders) with a solid color or simple background. A photo of the portrait is emailed for approval and a protective layer of medium gloss varnish is applied before delivery. A 50% deposit is required to begin work, and the remainder is due upon approval.
I am currently accepting a limited number of painting commissions, starting at $550. If you are interested in commissioning a portrait, please fill out this inquiry form. Lead time is currently 4-6 weeks, so the cutoff for portrait orders to be delivered by Christmas is Friday, November 17th.
Four years ago, in 2013, I developed the idea for this painting series. I was new to Atlanta’s local food scene and eager to learn. I wanted to explore the disconnect between producers and consumers of food. However, life isn’t linear, and other opportunities took priority over painting. In the meantime, I’ve gotten to know a lot of farmers and food purveyors and chefs; and I’ve learned a lot about food and farming. But the more I learn, the more I realize that I don’t know. So, once again I’ve circled around to this painting series as both a personal journey and a platform for educating others about how food (and other things) grow.
Follow along on my blog and Instagram (@kenanpaintsthings) for the stories behind the farms, the plants, and the paintings. I hope you and I both learn a few things.
