KISH Original painting

Florida-based Artist Gretchen Kish Serrano and her custom pet portraits combining her creativity with inspirations from classic artists including Pollock, van Gogh and Klimt.

A KISH Original painting is a joyful expression of love for your pet with a familiar artistic inspiration. She paints vibrant works of art honoring the exceptional bond her clients share with their pets. Specializing in dogs and cats, Kish is also open to commissioning other pets. 

"I express the love for a pet through my art," Kish believes. "I offer my clients a variety of artistic style options for their art.each with a unique inspiration from an artist I admire."

Currently, Kish is focusing on three distinct styles for her commissions; however, she is open to discussing additional options based on her client's artistic preference.
"Although I paint in a variety of artistic styles, I have been drawn to these three in particular: Pollock, van Gogh and Klimt," she explains. "I enjoy the challenge of painting in different styles and techniques. I also admire Matisse, Chagall, Gauguin and so many others."

Styles include BRUSH, inspired by the thick brush strokes and bold color palettes of Vincent van Gogh; DRIP, inspired by the expressionistic drips and splatters with their bold, overlapping colors and the thick surface texture created of Jackson Pollock; and GILD, inspired by the gilded works of Gustav Klimt. To mirror the style, Kish gilds using 23kt gold.

Prices vary depending on the style selected and size but many range from $2000 to $7000 per original commission for one pet. To add a second pet to portrait, an additional 10-20% is charged.
For the process itself, Kish loves to begin by hearing about her client's pet and discussing style options. Next the client provides photos showing their pet from a variety of angles with different expressions. Kish then emails the client one or two sketch options and asks they write a message to their pet. The artist follows up with photos as the painting takes shape. Once completed, Kish paints the message to their pet on the back of the canvas. The timing for a portrait commission can take three to six months from initial consultation through concept, painting, framing (if requested), to shipping and delivery.

Tabitha’s Folly by Jen Geigle Johnson
Tabitha's Folly (Regency House Party: Somerstone Book 5) by [Johnson, Jen Geigle]
Tabitha’s Folly is one of Five books all set at the same Regency House Party Series. While each is a standalone story, watch our characters mingle together with others from the books in the series. The stories can be read in any order.

Lady Tabitha Easton recklessly dodges four over-protective brothers while trying to gain attention from the man who holds her heart. She has many choices of suitors, and with Henry as disinterested as ever, she turns to what is wholly forbidden, an irresistibly handsome footman. While their friendship grows, her trust in him increases while her hurt and doubt in her childhood love and friend pushes her away from all she’s ever known as family.

When Lord Henry Courtenay discovers a new attraction to his childhood friend, his role as one of her chaperones at the house party becomes near impossible. Irrationally defensive about any potential suitors and seeking time alone with the enticing Tabby, maintaining friendship with her brothers proves more difficult than he ever imagined. His task becomes all the more difficult when she refuses to understand his growing attraction and often finds herself in almost compromising situations.

When Tabitha’s choices might lead her to danger, and doubt and distrust are high, Henry must prove himself or lose her forever.
