Portraits in Oil by John Dahl

John is a former professor of art, who has taught painting and art history at the University of Minnesota, Jamestown College, St. Andrew's College, and the University of Maine. Since then he has been a professional retriever trainer, emphasizing field trials, and a part time freelance artist and writer for The Retriever Journal.

All paintings are custom products executed on archive grade Belgian linen canvas in the finest permanent oil paints. Top materials and craftsmanship produce an enduring and beautiful image of your pet.

Since animals don't sit still, work is executed based on artistically posed photographs. Any pose, or action, can be represented as well as numerous background treatments including full landscapes. We can take photos, when practical, or work from images you supply.

Prices are inclusive: All materials, shipping, framing, and photography are covered in the stated price of the work. Although a $200 deposit is required, that will be refunded and shipping paid both ways if you are not delighted with the results.
