I use a photo of your pet(s) as a reference for the painting, which you send to me via etsy email.
This listing is for a portrait of one or two pets. For two pets, you must have a photo of both pets together looking at the camera.
-You provide several photos of your pet(s) for me to use as a basis for the painting
-The photos need to be head shots or a full body pose with clear focus and good lighting, so I can see the facial features well. I use the exact pose from the photo as reference for the painting (see pictures above).
-I discuss ideas/plans for the painting with you via email
-The painting is finished within 4 to 8 weeks, depending on my schedule. When you purchase, you're automatically next in line in my queue.
Size: 18 x 24 inches or 20 x 24 inches (whichever works best with the dimensions of your photo). I use 1.5 inch thick museum quality gallery wrapped canvases. I paint the image around/along the edges and wire each painting for hanging.
Framing: Framing is optional. A black floating frame can be added to your painting for an extra fee of $75 by selecting it from the drop down menu.
Medium: Acrylic on Canvas
Shipping: I offer Free Shipping in the USA and international shipping for an extra fee. Your painting will be insured and packed with care.
Guarantee: Prior to mailing you the finished painting, I will email you several photos of the painting. If you're not happy with it, I can either make adjustments or issue a refund. Each painting also comes with a certificate of authenticity.
Copyright: I retain all copyrights and reproduction rights.

I package my fine art prints in clear archival poly bags. Then, depending on the size, I either ship the print rolled securely in a tube or laying flat in a bubble pack envelope with rigid mat board supports. All orders are insured and will be replaced if damaged during shipping (but this rarely happens!).
I package my original paintings with extra care. Each painting is wrapped in wax paper, then a layer of foam wrap. After which, it is sandwiched between two sheets of cardboard and secured with tape. This cardboard/painting packet is then wrapped with bubble wrap. It is placed in a heavy duty cardboard box that has at least 2 inches of space around the painting where I add more bubble wrap and/or bubble bags. All orders are insured. I've shipped all over the world and never had a painting damaged in transit (knock on wood!), but if it were to happen, I could paint another similar piece to replace it or refund the order total.
I love to paint custom pet portraits :)

I make each print as it is purchased. So, if you need a print with specific dimensions that I don't offer in my listings, I'm happy to provide a custom print that will fit your frame or wall space. Please message me to order. Prices will vary depending on size.
