Pet Portraits

I haven't really posted a whole lot about my other business, but as a lot of you know, I draw pet portraits. My medium of choice is pastel on Bristol Board and I work from photos. I'm getting really busy as the Christmas season is upon us, and I've had even more interest since I added the Etsy thumbnail design element on the blog. (lower right)
I just wanted to let everyone know that if they want a drawing by Christmas, I need payment and photos by December first, and even that is subject to change as I have several drawings in process, and even more inquiries in my in-box.
I've been trying to think of a way to work out the Christmas rush, as each drawing takes a considerable amount of time to complete, (each one is different and I still have to allow for shipping times if you live out of state). This year, I am offering gift certificates that are redeemable from January 2nd, 2011 to September 1st, 2011. This way there is no rush, on anyone's part. The gift certificate gives the "giver" something to wrap and put under the tree, and then after Christmas, we can discuss the portrait in more depth. I know a lot of people who want to give a dog portrait to a friend or relative as a gift, don't have a quality photo of "the other person's dog". This way I can work directly with the dog owner and get them what they really want, angle, background color etc. To view more examples of my work, visit our shop by clicking here.

Dozer is feeling a little left out. I would love to see his portrait somewhere, he is after all, the best looking one, besides Cedi.
