UNFORTUNATELY, I AM NO LONGER ABLE TO TAKE COMMISSIONS FOR THE 2017 HOLIDAY SEASON. However, I'm happy to take orders for January and beyond. I also have gift cards available for the holidays — they come packaged with a mini canvas ornament hand-painted with the pet's name. If you'd like one, just mention it in the "special requests." Thanks!
When will my painting be finished?
It depends on the complexity of the painting and how many are in the queue. Average turnaround time is 8-10 weeks. Once you've placed your order, I can give you an estimate.
What if I have a specific date in mind?
If you need a painting by a specific date, I can usually work with you. In some cases there may be a rush fee. Holiday orders are usually full by mid-October. I also have gift cards available.
How many photos should I send?
It's best if you can send 4–5 photos so that I can get a sense of the pet's personality. Then we'll choose one that will work well on canvas.
What kinds of photos work best for painted portraits?
If possible, photos should:
- be taken in natural light
- be high-resolution
- showcase various aspects of the pet's personality
- be of the pet alone, unobstructed by people or objects (items or people in the background are fine)
