Jason O’Malley’s Modern Portraits for Modern People

Great Gift Idea for Dog Owners

If you’re thinking getting a portrait done of you and your pooch, think about commissioning one from Jason O’Malley. I had one made for Clark as a birthday gift featuring him, our Weimaraner Kendall, and me. We loved it so much, we had portraits done of our friends Robert and Angel, our consulting veterinarian Noa Safra, and my parents. This opened the floodgates! A slew of our friends commissioned portraits for themselves. (Cat owners don’t fret. Our friends Markus and Peter had one made of them with their two kitties.) To learn more about Jason’s portraiture work click here.

  1. I had a potrait done of me and my girl Sadie about two years ago. It turned out better than i could have imagined. Sadie passed away last August and the portrait has become one of my most treasured possessions. So glad i did it, and John is a dream to work with!
