CUSTOM WATERCOLOR PORTRAITS
I specialize in Fine Art watercolor portraits: An Example of a Bernese Mountain Dog Watercolor Portrait - Jasper
Kathleen Feeney, Rockford, Michigan, August 2007 writes,
"Jasper is our second Berner, and this is the second portrait Janet painted for us. You see, our Heart of Michigan Bernese Mountain Dog Club surprised my husband John with Janet's portrait of Ruby (our first Berner) in thanks for work he did on behalf of our organization, and we were both blown away by it! The depth of that portrait always amazes me--as if I can reach out and stroke Ruby's beautifully soft coat by touching Janet's water color. You find yourself just staring at the painting and wondering how it can be a water color with so much clarity, depth, and life! So when Jasper came along, we knew that Janet and Jasper needed to meet.
"While in between agility and obedience trials at the West Virginia national specialty in 2002, Jasper and I played eye contact games and Janet snapped photos of him. I remember how the wind was blowing and it fluffed up his ear fuzzles (which we love) and his very, very long chest hair. How could we resist? No photo ever taken of Jasper could capture his expressive face, his gentle but mischievous eyes, and his ever-present smile. Janet got it all! He's 9 now but he still gives us that same look--and it makes us smile. We're also so glad that we have Janet's Ruby to remind us of our wonderful first Berner baby. Thanks, Janet, for your talent and friendship (and for the Very Special Pleader and Berner Sympathy prints that are proudly displayed in our home)."

THIS MAT COLOR, BELOW, IS SPECTACULAR (AVAIL. AS SPECIAL ORDER)

A Very Special Pleader - Matted Print with engraved brass plate.
Premium Bronze Suede over Grass Green - A color that is difficult to describe... It's not exactly green and not exactly brown. Click on the tiny picture to see the mat color better. Since this premium top mat has a suede finish, the colors play back and forth between the two; bronze truly is the best word to describe it. By using a grass green inner rag mat, Janet has brought attention to the green velvet chair in the piano room and the green in the wool rug at the dog's feet. The light celadon green wallpaper ties the whole painting together. This matting combination simply exudes richness! Includes engraved brass title plate. This item can be shipped. This one is SOLD but I keep it here on this page for reference because it's such a beautiful color combination and can be ordered special order... if you are interested, please call to inquire.
Of course, you can always buy this print without matting, for $90, and have your framer mat it for you.
