Portraits of Your Pets

The Ralph Site is a NON-PROFIT resource that has largely been PERSONALLY FUNDED since 2011. If you would like to help support the site's on-going maintenance and development, please consider getting a portrait done.

The original pastel artwork is done by a veterinary colleague of mine, Mel Saalfeld, who has very kindly offered to do the portraits at no charge to me so that all proceeds can go towards supporting The Ralph Site. Such a kind gesture don't you think?

If you would her to DRAW ONE OR MORE OF YOUR PETS then please get in touch and we can discuss what you need to provide, costs etc.

Here are some examples of Mel's recent work...You can see more in our Facebook page album or Pinterest board.
