  © Norma Wilson, original oil on canvas 12" by 12


One of my favorite subjects to paint are commissioned pet portraits.  It took me until 
age 14 to wear my Mom down and allow me to have a dog and as soon as I was off on my own, I have always had a dog and for many years had two dogs and a cat.  They have always been members of our family and bring so much fun, laughter and comfort.  So, for me, painting pets, allows me to, in a way get to know more animals and in the process, they come to life for me.  It pleases me so much when an owner responds with delight and feel that I have captured the spirit of their precious pet.  If you would like more information on the process, please contact me at
