Interested in commissioning a dog portrait of your own? Here are some of our favorite Southern artists who specialize in different styles of pet portraiture.
artist: John W. Golden
This Wilmington, North Carolina, artist spent 15 years working to get the right match of his unique digital art style with the playful personalities of dogs. We think it was worth the wait. John’s breed portraits are created completely digitally, but they have the folksy appeal and visual texture of handpainted folk art. For just $18, you get a signed artist’s reproduction on archival paper. John has close to 40 breeds to choose from and is always working on the next.
