custom pastel pet portrait, cat art, Denny Martindale

Boston’s Garden, pastel, 12″ x 9″, private collection

Welcome to Martindale Artworks, the artistic world of Denny Martindale.  My primary  focus for the past 17+ years has been custom pet portraits in pastel.  These are first hand-drawn in charcoal on hard, archival quality boards, then I apply the color.  I usually work from photographs, as animals are not the most cooperative creatures in this regard.  I also do landscapes, and have branched out to include watercolors, oils and acrylics as well as an occasional mural.  You will notice a section titled ‘Miscellaneous Paintings’.  These are paintings I have done on a myriad of surfaces, from an old door to horse troughs, buckets to metal tubs, and more.  There are also wooden cutouts, which are on display at Brownland Farm in Franklin, TN and the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, KY.  Items in this area are done in latex house paint or acrylics.  Artwork makes a wonderful gift, and it is one of the few things that generally appreciates in value over time.  Feel free to check out the galleries and, if you are interested in a custom pastel pet portrait, another painting,  cutouts, miscellaneous art, or have any other questions, I would love to hear from you!
