My daughter LOVED it. She said it looked just Mosa and she was thrilled you got her eyes just right. ~ Kathy Eickholt
|Joshua - Mix, 10x8 oil on panel|
"A year ago I lost my dog after 17 1/2 years and I wanted a portrait to memorialize him. I recently found Janet on e-bay and asked her to do the portrait for me. I want everyone to know that she did an absolutely wonderful portrait of my dog... and it is such a wonderful and happy likeness of him that my husband and I find joy in it every day... It allows us to remember him with such fondness and no sadness and that is a perfect gift as far as we are concerned. Words cannot express our gratitude Janet but we still want to say a great big "Thank You" from the bottom of our hearts and know that we will forever be grateful to you for your effort." ~ Joyce Bates
|Buster & Rex - Lab Mixed, 5x7 watercolor|
Simply beautiful! Those are my boys and this will be a beautiful gift for my husband. ~Lori Mitchell RN
|Lily - Longhair cat - 10x8 Watercolor|
I did get the painting yesterday...It is absolutely amazing. You are so very talented. My brother and sister-in-law loved it. It looked great from the picture on line but in person it was so much better. I couldn't have been happier. Thank you so much! ~Shanna
|Bentley - Maltese - 7xWatercolor|
Janet painted 4 pictures of my malteses Beamer, Bentley, Lexus and Shelby. She did an absolutely beautiful job on them. They are so life like and everyone that has seen them loves them. You will not be disappointed with any work she does for you. She provides excellent customer service and delivery of your portraits is extremely fast to be custom. I will have Janet do additional portraits for me for my friends and family. I couldn't be happier. ~Gail Howell
|Kasi, Tashi & Storm - 10x8 Oil on panel|
Janet is a amazing artist and exemplanary professional. I wanted to have Janet do a oil panting so my wife would have something to remember her cats by. The likeness she presented in the painting was of a true professional, my wife was totally in ah when she recieved the painting for her birthday. Thank you so much for your heartfelt efforts to provide this painting for Tricia, it was done timely, shipping professionally and the price was well within our budget. Thank you so much for such a great experience.
~Gary and Tricia Turner.
|Claire & Angus - Malinois & Shepherd - 5x7 Watercolor|
"Hi janet, THANK YOU! You captured both of my beasties so well! ...you've gotten Claire's kind of pensive, kind of sulky expression just right! I am so happy with the portrait and my son (as a teenager he tends to be "worldly" and blase) was impressed and happy with how his dog (claire) came out. "Oh, that's cool" were his exact words; high praise indeed! Love it love it love it! " ~Karen Velasquez.
|Peyton and Eli - Vizslas 8x10 Watercolor|
I purchased a gift certificate for my Mom. She had Janet paint her two Vizslas (Hungarian Pointers). Janet had several pictures of the dogs to refer to, and also talked to my Mom about the personalities and other characteristics of the dogs. The result was an absolutely fantastic painting that captured the dogs perfectly. My Mom loves it; it is one of the best gifts I have ever given. ~Charlene Anderson
|Scooter - Calico 11x14 Oil on Panel|
Oh Janet, it is Beautiful!!!!! I love it. You did an exceptional job. This is a Christmas gift for my husband and he is going to have the best gift ever! Thank you ~Debbie Holloman
|Dexter, Squirrely & Echo 7x5 oil on panel|
I received my painting yesterday. It is WONDERFUL! I can't imagine how it could be better. I also consider it a compliment that you chose my 'babies' for the article on your blog. You did a great job of explaining your process and I've had a blast showing it to everyone I know. My mom (who purchased the gift for me) is also very excited with both the writeup and the painting. Thanks so much for the time you took to get everything just right!
|Vaeda, Gunner & Sam 14x11 Watercolor|
Janet - I wanted to thank you for all of your hard work in getting this painting done in time for Christmas. Becky told me how hard you worked on it and it was the best Christmas gift I have ever recieved. These dogs mean the world to me and you captured them exactly as I see them. Have to say I got a little choked up when I opened it on Christmas morning. Thank you so much for all of your effort and we have the painting hanging in our living room to enjoy every day. – Dave
|Skeeter - Golden Retriever - 10x8 Watercolor|
I wanted to let you know that my wife loved the watercolor you did of our dog Skeeter. Needless to say there weren't many dry eyes when she opened her gift Christmas Day. She still tears up when she looks at it. You did a wonderful job of capturing her beauty. Thanks so very much! ~Don
|Cleo - Calico cat - 10x8 Watercolor|
Janet, this is so amazing! You captured Cleo perfectly, and I couldn't be happier. I love that she is still in a box and the modifications are perfect. My third graders enjoyed seeing how you went about painting Cleo. I look forward to having you paint more pictures for me in the future.
Thank you so much! ~Lisa
How to order a Zeh Pet Portrait in 8 easy steps
Find or take some good pictures of your animal(s). The best photos are non-flash photos in natural light, but not bright sunlight. Try to get a picture in the shade on a nice day. If your best picture is flash, then send it along with several others to help out with details and color.
For more than one pet in the same portrait, your best pictures do not have to be of them together (that might be a tough assignment). However, do send at least one photo of them together to show the correct size proportions.
Select the size and the number of pets in your portrait. Click "Add to Cart" and check out securely with credit card, debit card or PayPal account.
A receipt will be emailed to you and you will be directed to a questionnaire about your pet.
Once you finish the questionnaire, you will receive the address to send your photos. You may send your photos by email or regular mail.
Allow two to three weeks after I receive the photos for the painting to be finished.
For additional sizes or more than three animals in the portrait, please contact me.
You may also order portraits of other animals such as horses, birds, rabbits, etc. Just purchase the appropriate size and send pictures of your pet.
