Small Business Saturday is November 28th

Small Business Saturday is the day to support the local businesses. Please join me in supporting local businesses and helping them thrive on Saturday November 28th.

Just a reminder, until the end of the year, I will be donating 10% of the proceeds of any portrait or memorial ordered to the Blind Dog Rescue Alliance (BDRA) in honor of our sweet Muffin. Muffin is a lovable Cocker Spaniel we rescued several years ago (she was my first foster failure). She has severe glaucoma and because of the pain glaucoma causes, she is in the process of having her eyes removed (she is already blind).

Christmas Orders

If you are thinking of ordering a gift for Christmas, I need to receive your order by December 10th to have it finished for Christmas delivery. Of course, the sooner you place your order, the better to beat the Christmas rush. Just email me at cbarber_art@yahoo.com or call 313-563-0162. You can also contact me through my Facebook page.

Pet Portraits Capture the Essence of Your Beloved Pet

That special glimmer in his eye. The spirit behind her unique personality. From the playful sense of humor to the one-of-a-kind expressions no other pet in the world has, they all combine to make your best friend who she/he is.

When you commission a portrait of your special companion for yourself or as a gift, you want more than mere paint on canvas. 

A pet portrait by me will capture the beauty, sweetness and the unique personality of your special companion in life-like detail—the way only a true work of art can! Now, you can have a true-to-life portrait drawn of your beloved best friend, ensuring that you always remember that favorite moment or classic animal expression forever!

That's why the custom painted portraits you receive from me captures the true individuality of your pet in such a way that you simply won't be able to take your eyes off of it. I hope you find something you like. I'd love to do a portrait of your special friend.


Why Choose a Portrait?

We all have lots of photos of our pets. But commissioning a portrait is the perfect way to create a special memorial or gift for someone special. What a fabulous and unique way to touch the hearts of the pet lovers in your life. Have questions about ordering pet portraits or about working with an artist? Contact me directly.

I also offer portraits of people (as well as people with their pets). Don't be shy about asking for a portrait of your grandmother, sister, grandchild or "significant other."
