Portrait Ordering Guide
STEP 1: Select Size.
Choose from these canvas options to find the perfect size for your space.
STEP 2: Pay Deposit.
Pay the non-refundable $50 deposit through my Etsy store.
STEP 3: Send Photo.
Select a photo that best captures your pet’s personality. It’s important that it’s not blurry, and details can be clearly seen. You can send it through Etsy or email. Then we can discuss specifications - such as cropping, composition, and colors - before I begin the painting.
STEP 4: Delivery & Payment.
Final payment and shipping fee can be paid through Etsy or PayPal when the portrait is complete. If you are close enough for me to deliver, payment can also be made in person.
Frequently Asked Questions
How long will my portrait take?
I usually estimate 1-2 weeks between January - September, and one month or more during the holiday season (October - December). This may change depending on my workload. If you need your portrait for a specific date, please let me know and I will do my best!
What materials do you use?
I paint on stretched canvas with acrylic paint and glazing mediums.
Will my painting look just like the photo?
I always strive to capture the image realistically, and it will always look like the photo, with slight variations since it is an original, hand-painted piece.
Can I choose the background color?
Absolutely! Please let me know your preference before I begin.
Can you combine different photos into one painting?
Usually - yes, as long as they are shot at similar angles with similar lighting.
Can I frame my portrait?
I paint the edges of the canvas so no framing is necessary, but you can certainly frame it if you prefer.
How do I get my portrait once it's finished?
I love delivering my paintings! If you live too far away, I can ship anywhere.
