TESTIMONIALS

David Hogue captured our beloved boy, a 4-year-old Doberman, to a tee. We wanted a painting of Rudy and David's ability to make the painting almost jump off of the page was incredible. All we did was give him a recent photo and he made sure that every detail from the fur to the little specks on his nose were captured in the painting. We are so pleased with his work. It was done quickly and we have the finished product framed and hanging in our living room. Thank you Mr. Hoque

Dear David, Words are not enough to thank you for the amazing graphite portrait! The detail and care taken to illustrate the happiness my fiancé and I share is truly remarkable and sets your work apart from any other I have seen. You were able to capture our emotions and smiles in a “snapshot” during such a joyous time. Your creative talent has certainly produced a timeless work of art that we will always treasure. I can’t wait to have more special moments frozen in time! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, [Shannon and Gary]

  I do take orders for custom work.  I generally do human and pet portraits and other requests approved on a case by case basis.  If you are interested in a portrait please e-mail or text me a nice detailed photo of your subject.  It’s critical that it’s a good photo in order to produce the best rendering.  If you’re not sure just send it anyway and we can go over the whole project together.  Prices vary but they are generally for a close up portrait prices are as follows:

$350.00 for one subject in colored pencil

$425.00 for two subjects in colored pencil
