I am back to painting.


I had to take a break in early April to welcome my baby boy into the world and now I am back to painting!

 I have to narrow my focus a bit so that I can balance work, home and play. I have decided to really concentrate my efforts towards creating my pet portraits.  I hope that you will stay tuned and share my website with friends!

My price for a 16×20 inch canvas is $150.00. That hasn’t changed. All I need from you is a picture of your pet.

Email it to margaretalvarez2010@yahoo.com.

I can have it done within two weeks!

I live in Houston and can deliver the painting to you if you like. Shipping fees apply for those outside of the Houston area.

This is a piece that I did for my sister Melinda. Her and her husband are Houston fire fighters. My brother in-law, Sr.Captain Eric Abbt has proudly served in the Houston Fire Department for 20 years. Melinda wanted to do something special to commemorate the occasion.

(Commission Work $200-$700)

Take a look at this piece I am working on! It is made up of four paintings of the same pooch. Each painting is done on a 16″x 20″ canvas.

$150.00 per canvas

Mention this post and I will make you a deal for four paintings of your pooch!



I’m back to share some new work and to share some good news! After a year and a half of playing around with the idea of starting a business officially, I have decided to get the ball rolling and  “Margaret’s Paintings” will be my new baby in 2013. I am so excited! Thanks for your support and enjoy some of my newest drawings.
