The MAGIC of Working With Ori
Tank was Billy’s best friend in the world. When Billy got engaged, and his brother planned the bachelor party, Billy’s first question was “Is the place dog friendly?” But 4 days after Billy left to go to Army Basic Training, to serve his country, Tank passed away.
After 12 years of spending every summer swimming in the islands with friends and family, living with many members of the family, and touching everyone’s lives, Tank was no longer around. Daniel (Billy’s brother and the best man) was looking for the perfect wedding gift, and ordered a pet portrait of Tank.
He sent a bunch of photos that he had, and one had Tank carrying a duck. Ori asked about this and discovered that Billy had trained Tank to hunt. It was a favorite family past-time that brought together many generations of the family, and Tank was “The best pointer ever!”
Instead of just a portrait painted from one of the photographs, Ori combined multiple pictures to create Tank, with his best smile, presenting 6 ducks which he caughton a beautiful sunny dayat the lake. This moment never happened, but it would have been the perfect day together for Tank and Billy.
The painting was a showstopper at the wedding. So many people had been touched by Tank, and everyone knew how close Billy and Tank were. Tears were shed, and whenever anyone has spoken of the wedding since, that “amazing painting” is always brought up.
With Ori, you’re not limited to the photographs that you have. Rather, you can have a magical painting created that captures the essence of your dog.
Part of Ori’s magic, is his tools and processes, which not only allow him to create magical images, but also to create them at whatever time is needed. Daniel ordered this gift a mere week and a half prior to the wedding, and received the painting with plenty of time to spare.
Here is the front of the painting
Ori paints the painting to get wrapped around the canvas.
Did it take a lot of treats to get these 3 to pose for this?
Not a single treat was harmed in the making of this painting!
A handful of random photos of the dogs were sent to Ori.
As an experienced photographer, Ori combined 4 images into a single picture, bringing out the details that were hidden in the original images, and painting in additional features that didn’t exist in the photos.
With Ori, you are not limited to what you have in your photos…. Or even reality.
Who is Ori, and why should I have him paint my fur-babies?

Lifelong dog lover / Lifelong artist / Serious techie / Award-winning photographer / Teller of bad jokes / Playful / Creative / Big-Hearted Do-gooder.
With over 20 years as an artist, and photographer, he can work with any image to create your perfect dog portrait. Ori makes the process easy and fun.

Ori does all the heavy lifting, so you don’t need to stress:
Over 20 years of experience:
While Ori has been creating art his whole life, he has been photographing and painting people and pets since 1996.
He is not only experienced in creating stunning images, but also in providing superb customer service.
Working with Ori is an experience… A pleasant one.
No need for a photographer :
The true test of a great portrait is capturing your pet’s personality. Ori can bring personality, depth, color, and much more from a photo that you took on your cell phone or camera.
Ori can even restore detail from old photographs, (usually) work with low-quality photos , and even merge multiple photos into one.
Fun and Easy:
Whether you have a specific look , or color combination in mind, or you just want to let the artist work his magic as he sees best…. The experience is easy.
Just choose your size, send at least one image (or as many as you’d like), check out the digital proof, let Ori know if anything needs to be changed or not, receive your canvas painting in the mail, hang it on your wall, enjoy it for decades to come.
Get the perfect painting:
Ori will help you choose which image is the best for your pet’s portrait. Then he’ll create the concept for your approval. Then you’ll receive a digital proof by email.
If there are changes to be made, Ori’s experience and cutting edge tools allow them to be made quickly, so you don’t have to wait long on your painting to be perfect.
A portrait that doesn’t clash:
With Ori’s experience and methodology, he can match the colors of your room and furniture, making sure that your painting will fit right in with your home or office. You can send a photo of the room that you want to put the art in, and Ori will make sure the portrait will match the color palette that exists there.
Ori can also paint your dog in any color or style that you would like.
Ori’s methods empower you:
Your painting is produced with museum-quality materials / canvas (thus, will last for many decades). If anything happens to your painting, or you’d like additional copies as gifts, or you have multiple homes, Ori will get them to you quickly.
Ori archives all of his paintings at multiple locations, so even the backup of your painting has backups.
Ori’s passion for dogs rivals his passion for art. The two passions shine vividly in all of his pet portraits. I have 3 ORIginals, and recommend Ori’s art to anyone that loves their pets. Many of my staff have seen Ori’s superb work, and have commissioned him to paint their dogs.
If you love your pet, you need to have Ori make one of his paintings of it!
