PET PORTRAITS BY DIANE MASTEL
A RECENT OIL PAINTING PROJECT OF A SILVER TABBY CAT NAMED BUSTER

From the Schmidt Family
“Diane, Thank you for your stunning oil portrait of my cat Buster. While a photo accurately represents an animal, portraits are often said to be lifelike. Your portrait makes Buster live. I know you can make many other pets spring to life in a painting just as you have done with Buster.”

The reference photo. The client wanted me to show Buster before his eye was damaged.

From the Wimer Family
“We have purchased four of Diane’s watercolors,  of “Casey”, “Nikita” and for gifts, “Aries” and “Brutus” for the kids. We absolutely love them!  She is an amazing artist and will capture your animals personality.
Three have passed away, and we are very fortunate to see the portraits every day on our wall at home.
Thank you Diane !”
