-A portrait of your pet is a wonderful way to immortalize your friend and partner. I strive to capture your pets character and personality.-Upon receipt of your 50% deposit, I will begin work, and you can expect to receive your portrait within eight weeks. Collages of multiple pets, multiple angles of one pet, or multiple subjects such as a horse with rider are available for an additional cost, price quoted on a case by case basis.
-Projects may be rushed for an upcharge of $100.
-Tack on horses is an additional $50 per horse.
-Choose from watercolor, prismacolor, or graphite.
-Pen & Ink is priced at a 50% upcharge(i.e. an 8x10 is $300 instead of $200).
If you have a website that features your show animal(s), I will include a 20% discount in the bid on your portrait in exchange for having the portrait posted on your website along with a link to my website.
-All art is on acid-free, archival quality paper and should be museum mounted when framed.
-Provide contact information, and advise if this is to be a gift. If this project is a gift with a deadline, please plan ample time. If you plan to have the artwork framed prior to giving it to the recipient, the framing gallery will often need a minimum of two weeks notice, and very often will not be able to order the supplies until they have the artwork in hand.
-Email pictures to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. The more pictures you send and the better quality the pictures, the better my finished product will be. Don't be shy, send me many pictures because the best portraits are produced when I get to "know" your pet. The best pictures should not have red-eye, as the eyes are the soul of your pet. The lighting should be good so that I can fully assess the colors and details of your pet's body.
-You should also inform me as to your desire for a closeup of the face, or a full body portrait. I usually will make recommendations once I see the photos.
-Please make note of my particular style. I do not recommend departing from my style. If you are after a different style, there are many other talented artists. I want you to be happy with the work, and so I advise that you expect an artwork in keeping with the style of work you have viewed on this blog. For example, elaborate backgrounds seldom convey well with the style of art I create. I focus on the subject, to the exclusion of other details.
- The artist reserves all rights to the use of the image created.
- Every attempt will be made to satisfy the customer, however, rejected portraits must be returned before a new portrait will be started.
- Shipping Costs are additional, and range from $15 to $40 for standard delivery methods. Overnight delivery is available upon request, prices quoted individually.
- Every attempt will be made to return photos, but cannot be guaranteed.
