Tara Arts

Tara Arts Gallery

Tara Tripoli specializes in painting commissioned portraits of animals. All that is needed is a good reference photo. Tara prefers to shoot her own reference photos. If that is not possible, a 4”x6” or larger print of your pet is necessary. An 8”x10” is preferred. If using your own photo, choose one that best represents the color of the animal. If the pose you prefer doesn’t capture the color well enough, providing additional photos is a good idea. Your photos will be returned to you upon completion. If using a photo from a professional studio, a signed release from the photographer of your photo will be necessary to prevent copyright infringement. A non-refundable deposit is required at onset of commission. Tara will create sketches to show approximate size of subject in relation to canvas, and to see a clear idea of composition. This is the time to let Tara know about ear, feet & head placement. Tara also combines photos to create a unique painting that may otherwise be impossible to photograph. Upon approval, Tara will begin the painting. Paintings take between 8 and 18 months on average. If you need it sooner for a gift, talk with Tara about it. Tara will try to accommodate any reasonable request. For additional questions, feel free to call or email Tara Tripoli.
