The Pet Portraits For Everyone store on Etsy is officially open for business!
Initially you’re able to place orders for commissions painted from your animal companion photos but I’ll also be selling ready-to-hang canvases made from non-commissioned paintings just as soon as I snap pictures of the first run.
Ready-to-hang canvases are only produced in limited run numbers of no more than five copies, while a commissioned painting is never sold to anyone other than the patron who orders it and only ever used by myself for marketing purposes only, to show off your beautiful pets and what I can do in order to generate more business and build my reputation for making customers happy.
Pet Portraits For Everyone was set up in part as an antidote to expensive, mass-produced prints and canvases. None of my paintings will ever number in their tens, let alone hundreds and thousands.
Whether you go down the commissioned or non-commissioned route of purchase, you will get a very special painting you can treasure. Of course, if you ever damage it—when moving house, perhaps—you can replace it easily as I keep the original files even if you’ve lost the electronic copies I sent to you, in the case of commissions, or in the case of non-commissioned works, I still keep the original high-res files of those too. All e-originals are cloud-stored, so I won’t ever lose them due to computer crashes or anything else.
