The LLGorman™ Studio offers Pet Art Portraits: Impressionistic photography giclée printed on artist's canvas, gallery wrapped and ready for hanging. With her custom portraits, LLGorman applies her unique PoesyArt-style image processing to bring out detail, texture, and color quality, producing a spectacular ready-to-hang result.

What kind of processing does Linda apply to the photo? It's not possible to accurately show on a computer screen the detailed texture and eye-popping clarity achieved when printed on canvas, even when standing at a considerable distance from the final art piece. Nevertheless we offer some before/after examples: click  Design  to see samples, including enlarging the "after" version for your scrutiny.

LLGorman's Pet Art Portraits are durable museum quality prints on canvas having a color-fastness of well over 75 years.

Consider Pet Art for yourself or as a beautiful gift to others.

If you are located in the SaddleBrooke, SaddleBrooke Ranch, or Eagles Nest communities of southern Arizona, Linda can do a photoshoot for you. If you wish, you may instead provide your favorite pet photograph. If you do provide your own photograph, there are important factors to consider. Read details at  Photo Tips . Either way, Linda will design a magnificent custom one-of-a-kind pet portrait keepsake for you.

LLGorman Pet Art Portrait are offered in two sizes:
12"x12" ($60) or 12"x16" portrait or landscape format ($75)

Choose Your Photo

Linda begins the process of creating a Pet Art portrait using a high resolution photograph of your pet. If you choose to provide a photo to Linda (versus requesting Linda to do a photoshoot), please review the material below, including viewing the video, to learn about resolution and composition requirements.

Choose a photo that you feel is most appropriate for the desired format (either the 12"x12" or the 12"x16" format). Your photo file must be JPEG format (i.e., a file name ending in .jpg).

Resolution and Composition

VIEW THE VIDEO BELOW. For best results, choose the photo that's not only your favorite but that's taken by a camera of sufficiently high megapixel rating. Excellent results will be achieved if the camera is at least an 8 megapixel camera. Depending on the extent of cropping that might be required, great results can possibly be achieved even with 5 megapixel cameras. If you haven't already taken your picture, set your camera to provide highest resolution and maximum quality (e.g., "Extra Fine" or "Superfine")

Edges

When taking or choosing your photo, be aware of what's in the shot around the border. If important subject matter is too close to the border, Linda will likely add a color-coordinated border around the image so it will wrap around the edge rather than the important subject matter being wrapped around the edge. Photos that can wrap around the edge without losing important subject matter (literally) stand out from the wall.

The portion of this image that will wrap around the edges is shown with a red tint. This example shows that some of the subject matter of interest will wrap around the edges. A better result might be achieved if the dog didn't fill so much of the image space. But the decision is yours!

The Design Style of LLGorman

Art Style

When you commission Linda to create your Pet Art on canvas, you are getting a magnificent, custom, one-of-a-kind art piece based on her years of experience in amplifying the underlying details drawing out texture and color richness.

The images in the expandable sections on this page show both the original photographs and final designs. Be sure to click the final designs to enlarge them to scrutinize the style detail. Keep in mind that the actual art printed on canvas brings out even more texture.

You can see that Linda is not simply printing photography on canvas. Each photograph receives custom art treatment by one artist based on the quality, nature, composition, lighting and contrast of the photo, unlike "digital portrait factories" that crank out predefined formulations. Click any Final Art Design to view an enlargement of the image revealing the detail.

Physical Format

Depending on the composition of the photo, Linda will select either the 12"x12" fomat or the 16"x12" format. The dimensions represent the size of the face of the finished piece. Typically, Linda will crop the final piece to 15"x15" (or 19"x15") such that the edge of the image wraps around the 12"x12" (or 16"x12") stretcher bars ("gallery wrapped"; see image below for detail). Please note that the 16" edge of the 16"x12" format can be either width ("landscape" format) or height ("portrait" format).

In some cases, if important features of the image are too close to the edge such that those features would wrap around the edge when gallery wrapped on stretcher bars, Linda will instead maintain the image within the 12"x12" area (or 16"x12" area) and add a color-coordinated border around the image that will appear on the edges of the finished piece. Click the image second from the top (under "Final Art Design") to see use of the color border.

How to Commission LLGorman to Create Your Custom Pet Art Potrait

Source of Photography

First decide if you will be requesting Linda to do a photoshoot, either on your premises or in her SaddleBrooke Ranch studio, or if you will be supplying your own photo. If the latter, there are important considerations about your photo regarding resolution and composition. Please visit our  Photo Tips  page for specifics, including viewing the video.

The photoshoot service and free delivery is available for the SaddleBrooke, SaddleBrooke Ranch, and Eagles Nest communities just north of Tucson. You should plan on the session taking about one to two hours.

Format

Normally, Linda will determine which format works best for the selected photo, the 12"x 12" or 16"x12". If you have a strong preference, you should express that to Linda during this ordering process.

Pricing

The price is $60 for the 12x12 pieces and $75 for the 16x12 pieces. The out-of-area delivery charge is $16.

In-area and in-studio photoshoot services are available for $25.

Contact Linda to Place the Order

To get your project underway, go to  Contact  to state your desire to have a pet portrait developed. Include your phone number as Linda will invariably want to discuss your order to make sure there is agreement as to goals.

If you supply the photo, Linda will ask you to attach the photo file to an email you send to her. She will review the photo to ensure it is suitable for creating a pet art portrait.

If Linda does the photoshoot, she will present to you several photo choices for you to select from. Those photo choices will not have been process. The intent is to give you a choice as to pose and composition that pleases you.

Should any questions arise during photo processing, she will contact you.

SATISFACTION GUARANTEED

If for any reason you are not satisified with your Pet Art, contact Linda to make arrangements to return the piece and receive a refund of the full purchase price. For out-of-area orders, you will be asked to pay the return shipping charges.
