Coming in January 2017! IMPORTANT: due to my current work schedule, I cannot guarantee finished work for dates like Valentine's or birthdays/anniversaries that fall before May. While you will receive finished work before May of course, I cannot secure specific dates. Juggling multiple clients means an ever-shifting parade of due dates to manage, so I ask for your patience and flexibility! All orders placed by 1/30/17 are guaranteed to be completed by 5/1/17, pending customer feedback and response times.

By popular demand, I will be opening up 5 slots for a one of a kind pet portrait, painted in Acrylagouache.

FAQ and terms:

- 2 sizes are available: Small (2'' x 3'' or 3'' x 3'') or Large (5''x7'' to 8''x10'')

- Small size portraits are limited to one pet (full body or head/shoulders) with solid color background. A prop or favorite toy can be included, but no elaborate scenery. A simple frame is included with each portrait.

- Large size portraits feature a single pet and pose, but can have up to 3 pets, with a solid color background. Props or favorite toys can be included, but a simple background scene (i.e. tree, grass, rug, etc.) will cost extra. A simple frame is included with each portrait.

- Base price for small portrait is $100 per portrait. Buyer may request up to 3 small portraits within their slot. A discount can be offered for a set of 3 at $250.

- Base price for a large portrait is $250. Buyer is limited to one large portrait per slot, as these are the most time-consuming. Additional poses, pets and/or background elements are an additional cost, to be determined based on complexity.

The Process

Buyer will be asked to supply a .zip file of photos of their pet, showing as many expressions and views of the animal as possible. A brief bio or information about their pet's endearing quirks/favorite toys is very helpful and will ensure a personal touch to your portrait.

I will do a fairly detailed digital study of your portrait based on your photos and allow the buyer a chance to weigh in on feedback. After one round of feedback, I will proceed to paint in Acrylagouache. Buyer will be notified upon completion and the portrait will be mailed once the remainder fee has been paid.

Other Tidbits:

Your portrait is one of a kind and will not be reproduced or sold by myself. I might request permission to reproduce and sell the digital study, however, I will not scan & print the final painted work to sell. I want you to be happy and to know that you own a special treasure! I do reserve the right to use the final portrait for self-promotion online and portfolio work, however.

As much as I love kids and human beings in general, I cannot add a human character to your portrait. I don't enjoy drawing people as much, and getting a proper likeness of a real person is often a tedious and unsuccessful endeavor for me. Trust me, you want me to draw an animal. My humans are ghastly.
