Micro Pet Portraits

December 28, 2010

Inspired by my never ending love for a good challenge, and my preference for working small, here are the smallest original paintings you can find! Put them on a string and you’ve got what I call Art Gallery on a String. Now you can wear and show off your beloved pet anywhere you go!

These little acrylic on canvas paintings are all approximately 1 ¼” x 1 ½” with a sterling bail attached to the back and strung on black cotton cord with slip knots to fit any one with any neckline.

I paint pets only on a commission basis, gathering a handful of photos from clients to work from to ensure an accurate portraiture. Your average miniature pet portrait, like these, are just $75/ea., however I also offer larger wall paintings and you can see a couple of them on the ‘larger paintings’ page.

  1. These are awesome and hilarious. Good work, Rehnke.

  2. These paintings are wonderful! I can’t believe you have such detail in such a tiny picture! Everyone always laughed at how small I painted, but they should see these! They would make great gifts for the pet lover that has everything! I’ll have to show my neighbor! 🙂

  3. Jenn, Your work is brilliant! I can’t imagine how you give such life to these pets in such a small scale. Simply amazing! Do you use a magnifying glass to get such tiny detail done? I’m curious.

    • Thanks, Renee. I actually do now have a lighted magnifying glass – like the ones you see on Perry Mason 🙂 although I didn’t always use one. But in an effort to keep my decent eye-sight I figured I’d better get one. I also have very tiny brushes – teehee

  4. Kerry gave me my beautiful portrait of my baby Porter. Thank you so much. The work is amazing. You captured his loving face perfectly. I am able to have Porter with me always.
