So, if your read to have your furry friend or friends immortalized, follow these easy steps:
Find a digital picture that you like and send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. (If you only have hard copies, you may mail email me for an address to mail them. Please don't send me pictures you need to have returned.)
Please keep in mind that the better your picture is, the better your painting will be. I cannot paint what I cannot see. If I can't tell the eye color from your picture, please either describe it well or send me a picture of any animal or person with the correct eye color. Same goes for the coat color of your pet. I need to be able to see it. You can send me one picture with the pose you like and another with a better representation of the pets color. More information is always better.
Let me know in your email what size you prefer. (8" - 90.00, 10" or 8" X 10" - 110.00, 12" or 9" X 12" - 125.00. (Shipping is extra) Other sizes as well as multiple pets on one portrait can also be priced on request.
Let me know if you have a background color preference. Otherwise, I can choose for you.
The usual time frame is 4-8 weeks depending on how many I have waiting. I can often work with your deadlines if you have them, so let me know. Keep in mind that holidays are busier and you should get your pictures in the rotation as early as possible. I am never offended if you email to check on your painting. Feel free if time passes and you have not heard. It is rare, but people have fallen through the cracks.
When your portrait is nearing completion, I will contact you by email and you may pay either by paypal invoice via email (allowing you to use the credit card of your choice) or we can make other arrangements. (Please note that I can no longer ship portraits until they are paid for.)
