Q. Do you use canvas?
A. I work with acrylics on prepared panel 12×12″ and 3/4″ thick. I paint around the sides so it can be hung as is, placed in a frame or leaned on a shelf.
Q. Can you combine two pets into one picture?
A. If the lighting is very similar and from the same direction, that can be done. it does cost an additional fee.
Q. If I want to mail a check, where do I mail it?
A. Write and mail to Carol King PO BOX 1295 Kodak, TN 37764 Always Email me first to expect your check.
Q. Can you paint the whole body and the background in the picture?
A. For this special price, it includes only the head so that we have enough detail to see the eyes and expression well. The eyes are the window to the soul and doing the right captures the nature of your precious pet. You can contact me about a larger, custom portrait.
Q. How do Gift Certificates work?
A. I will email you a numbered gift certificate which you can give to your friend or loved one. They will contact me from the information on the certificate and we proceed from there.
Q. Can you do a rush order?
A. I can if I don’t have other rush orders in front of yours. That would cut the time from painting to one week because I can paint it in a couple of days but it takes a few days to dry before it’s safe to mail. A $30 rush order fee will apply and is payable up front.
