    It is a bit odd that the scenery was changed, but I am definitely not an artist. The good thing is that Pork Chop looks amazing in both the beautiful beach picture and the oil painting. If your beach picture is good quality, maybe get a blow up or a canvas done of it to put on your wall as well.

    Looking at it from strictly an art standpoint, I think the scenery he painted distracts the eye from the main focus of the picture, which is pork chop. This is an artist's focal point in art and should understand it if you tell him that.

    I personally would ask to have the background redone , if no beach, just a nice blend of colors that will not distract from the focus, and then pay him handsomely for doing such a great job on it when it's done.

    Good point.

    One a good note, I found a new artist. A student, who does amazing work using acrylic. She offered to do a make over if I buy the painting at $40 top pay bec it's not what I want. The new artist will add the ocean and touch up Pork chop bring the shadows out. She will charge $90 to make the corrections. She was in disbelief when I showed her the beach pic and the mountain painting.

    If the man says, no. We will start fresh with a nice size canvas with acrylic and she will add a gloss to look like oil paint.

    I love the original picture of Porkchop. Frame that!

    The painting doesn't appeal to me. I immediately get the feeling your artist recycled a pre-painted landscape.

    The bulldog in the painting is beautiful, but......you asked for a Porktrait and your artist painted a likeness. Too many of the proportions are off for my OCD.

    Many people said, the background is ugly. I have to agree, my heart was set on the ocean. He did a fantastic job on Pork chop. You could be right about the recycle , bec he said oceans were difficult to draw ( maybe an excuse). He probably didn't want to fix it. I called him and no answer. If I don't hear from him , this whole thing will be dropped and move on to the new painter.

    I made a decision to take some advise and blow up the picture and put it on canvas
