Original, single animal, pet portrait in oil pastels on paper, between 8×10 and 9×12 inches in size, depending on the model picture you provide of your pet. Read detail below for pricing, contract, and timing.
By popular demand, Melasdesign Handmade Shop / Susan Hicks is now offering pet portraits drawings in oil pastels by commission. I’ll draw any type of pet – not just dogs. I love them all! The better the photograph you provide for me to use as a “model pic,” the better the portrait! $20 from every oil pastel drawing will be donated to Animal Friends of Doggy Sods.
Current ETA: I will be able to start new commissions around July 21, 2020. Turnaround time is 2-3 days.
Pet Portrait Commission Contract Melasdesign Please read before submitting payment. Sign and return with photo of pet.
• Portraits are done on a first, come, first serve basis.
• Portraits will be packaged in a clear envelope and shipped, reinforced by cardboard, delivered by US Priority Mail.
• A simple contract will be signed by both parties before work commences.
• If you are not happy with your commissioned work, I will refund your money and keep the art.
• I retain the rights to my work, and the right to post pictures of your pet portrait in advertising and social media. A digital photographic copy of your work remains part of my portfolio for me to use as desired, including possible digital remarketing. Original art is always worth more than prints, and may be a valuable investment.
• I will do my best to give you a ball park estimate of when I will have your drawing done. Please keep in mind that I am dealing with chronic illness that sometimes effects the normal functioning of my eyes and muscles. This is unpredictable. At such times I must pause from creating art. I do my best to keep in contact with customers and keep them up to date on my progress.
