ALL I NEED
(BESIDES PIZZA, BUT THAT'S MY ISSUE)
The clearer the better! When in doubt, just shoot some over to me here, and I'm happy to help you pick the best image.
a background color
If you're having trouble with this one, think about where it would hang. What color is your/their couch/comforter/carpet? As always, you can just send me some shots of the room it'll go in, and I'm seriously happy to help!
a personality description
Short or long works just fine. Some people send great bullet points, and some send some really beautiful stories.
Anecdotes and descriptions really help me honor the true personality of each and every fur/feather/scaly baby.
It's important to me to capture WHO they are!
Shipping, Payment, Gift Cards, Wait times
v v v
Every subject is its own challenge. But mostly I do portraits of pets. For pets, I am able to set standard prices that are both fair in the market and fair for the commission and the customer. They're really quite low. With more precise requests -- for example multiple pets, specific backgrounds, or portraits of humans -- the amount of time needed to produce a quality painting increases. And in those cases, I look at what you would like to see, figure the amount of additional time it will take, and can offer you a quote.
GIFT CARDS ARE ALSO GREAT GIFTS!
Yup, they really are! I have gift cards if you want the receiver to make all of the decisions from the beginning and follow the process on social media.
Each person and relationship is different, so there is no one-size-fits-all path. But just as a courtesy, I don't recommend ordering a completed gift for someone else unless you have very intimate knowledge of the pet and the receiver. (We all have that thing in the attic we have to get out whenever Aunt Judy is coming to visit!)
Gifts cards are often the way to go!
Shipping is included in the prices posted HERE.
Special or larger size canvases can alter the equation.
And again, so can things like adding multiple pets, or people, your favorite lake in the background (for example,) a certain style. More stuff takes more time! :)
Email me here to get on the waiting list, or to ask any questions you can think of.
The standard portraits typically take three weeks **or more** to produce, depending on the image and my current workload. I always try to be accommodating and communicative. But if you need it more quickly (or more complex), there may be an additional nominal fee (probably because it will require moving another customer's timeline around or other adjustments to my work load).
I typically ask for full payment up front, but can also be accommodating for custom orders, and if we are able to communicate openly, am usually able to accept installments from beginning through delivery. I am also happy to accept cash in advance, but do not accept checks from people I do not have an existing relationship with (you're on the internet, you understand.)
GET IN TOUCH!
Just shoot me a message HERE. I always love to talk painting, and am happy to talk about your project and unique wants and needs.
