Pet Portrait Commissions

Posted in Art Journal, business-a-go-go, Main at 12:54 pm by carrie

Starting at $40, you can get a watercolor and ink drawing of your pet. I can also do landscapes, homes, still lifes etc, but no humans, please! The cost will depend on the complexity and detail in the photo you select.

Finished piece will be roughly 5″ x 7″ on an 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece of card stock.

To get a cost & time estimate, please send me an email with the photo you wish to use. Please make sure the lighting is good and all the details are easy to see, especially the eyes! I’ll get back to you with the details.

To see more of my art, check out my Pinterest board.

There goes a tumbleweed!

Blogs are becoming abandoned ghost towns on the internet… so, I chose to put most of my new art, adventures etc on our Facebook page and Pinterest boards.

But then, something funny happened… Facebook is hiding posts, requesting payment to show said posts to followers and overall… regulating everything I do there. And Pinterest is turning into a similar world of promoted pins and things you can buy. It’s getting overcrowded and claustrophobic over there, metaphorically speaking.

So, I’m going to come back to my little blog a bit more…

Here are some art journal posts from 2014…
