Commissioned Art by Isabel Ostrom
Isabel Ostrom primarily works in acrylic on gallery-wrapped canvas. The edges are painted so there is no need for a frame although if you prefer a framed work a different type of canvas can be used. The composition of the painting is based on digital images that you provide of your pet.
The Commission Process:
Isabel will consult with you during the design stage. You will email her 3 - 5 of your favourite photos and from those images Isabel will suggest which one is most appropriate for a painting. Often this depends on the quality of light, expression of the animal and clarity of the photograph, particularly around the eyes. You will discuss which image works best and if necessary Isabel will provide a modified mock-up (this may be a cropped and enhanced photograph) before she begins painting. Once the painting is nearly finished, she will email a photo of it to you for your approval.
The chosen image dictates the size and orientation of the canvas (square, portrait or landscape). The minimum canvas size is 12" x 12" although larger is recommended. Additional pets in the painting cost extra. For prices, please contact Isabel directly by phone or email.
