Your Family Reunion, by Heidi Shaulis:

Here is your opportunity to have your pet family (past and present) immortalized as part of my Family Reunion series! This will be an original oil painting. Size will be determined by number of animals...for example, 3 might be on a 9x12 canvas, 10 would be on a 20x20 canvas (also depending on whether you prefer a square or rectangle) stretched gallery wrapped canvas, initialed HS in black, signed and dated on the back, and coated with spray varnish to enhance and protect the colors. Staple-free edges will be painted black or another color that complements the painting. I use only fine archival materials; paints are exclusively Winsor & Newton alkyd oils.

Here's how it works:

You email or send me pictures of your cats (and dogs!). We discuss by email what you would like as background colors, patterns and size. The painting will take approximately 14 to 18 weeks to complete, as I work in alkyd oils using a glazing method that is slow but results in vibrant translucent color. When it is complete, I email you a scan for your approval. If you love it, then I can ship it ten days later (when dry). Otherwise, I'm happy to do edits, I want you to love your painting!

With this size painting, a 50% deposit would get your painting underway, with the balance due at completion. Please let me know if you are interested in ordering this commission and I would adjust this listing to be a 50% deposit!

Shipping will be calculated after we decide on a size.
