Unless otherwise requested, I prefer to paint pet portraits and botanicals on museum quality acid free cotton paper known as “Rag”. This technique, Peinture a L’essence, was often used by the Impressionist Edgar Degas. By painting the oil on a paper pallet, the oil is pulled out of the paint and the result can give a pastel or watercolor appearance.

While Degas did not place his paintings under glass, I do, as a protection to both the paper and the painting. All paintings arrive fully matted and framed.
