8x10 portrait on basswood
8x10 pet portrait on basswood
Watercolor on basswood
8 x 10

Custom watercolor pet portrait of your beloved furry best friend! Pet portraits make perfect gifts for a loved one, or as a great gift to yourself.

This is a natural slice of basswood, so any cracks, peeling, or slight crumbling of the wood is possible. The bark around the edge of the wood is sealed with polyurethane. This will come ready to hang with a small saw tooth hanger on the back of the painting. And yes, I do in fact use watercolor to paint these paintings!

What I will need from you is good quality photos of the animal. The clearer the photo, the better, so that I am able to add details and create a perfect likeness of your pet. You can send as many photos as you'd like, and be sure to send your favorite face or pose of your sweet fur-kid. Once you purchase the custom pet portrait, please send me photos via Etsy conversations. You can also email the pictures to me:

If you have any preferred decoration (such as favorite flowers, leaves, succulents, etc of the recipient) please let me know so I can add decor to best accentuate your pet. If you do not have any prefered decor, I can happily create something for you.

When I have your payment and photos, I will create a sketch of your painting and send it your way for approval before I begin painting.

It typically takes me about 1-2 weeks to sketch and paint (depending on my current workload) If you have a deadline you need the painting by, please let me know ASAP and I will do my utmost to accommodate your needs.

PLEASE NOTE: Prices of shipping will vary depending on what size portrait you choose. The shipping cost for this listing is listed as an 8x10 size painting. The painting will be packed and protected with bubble wrap and/or other packing material.

I would suggest an 11x14 size or larger for 2 pets to be in the same painting. For multiple pets, I typically paint just the animal's head/face. You may also consider two separate 8x10 basswood paintings, one of each animal. (If you'd like a size larger than 11x14, please message me so we can discuss size/price to accommodate your needs) You can send separate photos of each pet, they do not have to be photographed together.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to send me a message! :)
