Arica, seriously thank you so so much for my painting of Tango! I adore it!
I love his eyes, it's exactly how he looks at me. I love his little paws and the details of his nails and little fuzzies on his forearms. I love his flowy soft neck and chest fur, and his little tongue wrinkles! His black fur actually looks shiny like it is in real life! I can't get over the colors and the warm vibe of the whole piece. It is more lifelike than I could have ever imagined it to be, and feels so vibrant and full of energy like he is actually running right next to me! It makes me want, no need to go hug and squeeze on Tango!
I love it! Thank you!  - Ally Russell
My favorite pet photographer, turned painter extraordinaire, painted a picture of my cat, Theodore Kitty. When I opened my email and saw the proof of what she had created from the picture I sent her, my husband & I were speechless. I've never seen such a detailed & beautiful painting of a pet like the one she made for me. I will certainly treasure it forever. I highly recommend Pet Paintings by Arica Dorff. You will NOT be disappointed!

What a joy to receive my pet painting today from Arica!  She is so easy to work with and I received the final product within 2 weeks!  I will treasure this painting forever. - Lorna Gomes
This past week we received our painting of our beloved Scamp. We had already seen the image online and we knew what it was when the package arrived. As Frank began opening the package, I started tearing up. When the painting was revealed, we both broke down in tears of happiness - no really. Our boy was taken away from us way too early and he was the dog of our hearts. Our beautiful painting has brought him back to us. We feel like we can almost reach out and touch him, it is so lifelike. Every hair, his eyelashes and eyebrows, and his eyes - oh his eyes - it is just spectacular. Grandpa says it is like Scamp is looking at him though a window. Thank you, Arica, for your beautiful work. While he always had a prominent place in our heart - he now holds a prominent place in our home. And my necklace is beautiful as well. We love you for this. - Frank & Denise Bianca
(Lorna requested "soft ocean blue tones" for the background and I think it's the perfect color with Mino, Nani & Koa!)
Arica did this AMAZING painting of our sweet Sophie girl. I cried the moment I saw it...oh how I miss that sweet face. It turned out just like I knew it would... perfect! I can't wait to get it up on our wall. Arica, you are truly beyond talented my friend. I'm so excited to finally own a piece of your art. Thank you so much!  Facebook Friends, make sure to check out her work and become a fan of her page! - April Durnil
Darby & Toby's painting is gorgeous - I LOVE it!! The detail and brush strokes are amazing, and the lighting... I could go on and on. :) Thank you for creating a piece of art that I will cherish forever. Love, love, love it!! - Stacy Rombach
(Stacy emailed me photos of her dogs, past and present. She said "Darby and Toby would have gotten along so well - and a painting of them together would be amazing.")
I saw one of your Pet Paintings on Facebook 6 months ago and immediately went to your website to see your gallery… knowing someday I’d want a painting by you of Parker, my English Springer Spaniel. Our canvas arrived today and it’s beautiful!!! It’s a Father’s Day surprise for my husband and I know he’ll love it! Thank you so much for the beautiful painting and for working so hard for your customers!  - Cindy Smith
