◾ In a couple of days I will send you a sketch of your custom portrait.
◾ Once we agreed on the sketch, I start painting your original watercolor portrait.
◾ I send you the final picture. At this stage you can only ask for minor tweaks.
◾ You'll receive a digital file at high resolution to print yourself and a smaller file to use as a social media profile picture.
◾ (If you opted for print) You'll receive a high-quality print in the preferred type of paper. Size is A5 (148 x 210 mm).

TO LOVE IS TO HOLD (or is it?)
I always thought that the Dutch expression 'Ik hou van jou' (= I love you) was somewhat related to physically holding someone.
Turns out that 'houden van' in Middle Dutch meant in the first place 'to have something on loan from', 'to be someone's vassal', hence 'to care for' and finally 'to love'.
I have the feeling anyone who's ever served a cat already knew this! 🐈

If your portrait needs to be in another size just send me a message before the purchase.

Amazing and wonderful things as always from SoftMoka :) This one was the mother's portrait, which my mom really enjoyed and framed. Smooth process in getting it personalised as well.
