Commissioned painting from photograph of Greece Seascape

The Process - Easy  1-2-3 Steps

You may submit up to three clear photos of your subject to PaulaMooreArt through our order form below. Paula Moore takes the information you provide her to gain an understanding of your pet(s) or individual's personality. She sketches the portrait from the photograph.  Then Paula begins to add color and bring the painting to life with watercolor paints. Next, Paula ships your unique custom painting to you. Please allow for 4 weeks for the design and delivery.

Step 1 - Please submit up to three clear photos of your pet(s) or landscape or individual through our order form below.  Paula Moore then reviews the information you provide to gain an understanding of what you desire in your unique commissioned painting.  


Step 2 -  Paula will then contact you by the phone number you provide to personally discuss her thoughts on how best to paint the feeling you hope to capture.  (This conversation usually comes up with more details to make the painting extra special.  For example, when one client mentioned that the gift recipient was from the UK, this gave Paula the idea to paint a hint of a Union Jack Flag in the dog collar. The fellow loved it!  In another painting of the Colorado Aspen groves, the suggestion of carved initials were painted on one of the aspen trees. )


Step 3 - Please allow for four weeks to design, create and deliver a painting which will be uniquely yours to treasure or to be given as a special gift!

Perfectly Wonderful, Paula Moore!

The painting of Dandy is an answer to prayer. I had to give Dandy to a good home, but he died a few months later.  His lameness just kept getting worst.

N. Smith

I go right back to the Colorado Mountains when I see this painting. You’ve captured the feeling!  Thank you!
