About NightOwlFineArt

Sales 758
On Etsy since 2015

My life as an artist.

I started drawing at a very young age. I would fill up my mother's writing pads with doodles and then catch hell because she couldn't find a clean page. "Sorry, mom!"
Many years later, after trying a few different mediums, I realized I loved oil painting.
I draw and paint any subject matter that inspires me, from portraits (people & pets) to scenery, still-life, and flowers.

In 1998 I found a book at the library on painting rocks. I looked at the book and put it back. I couldn't get it out of my mind so I went back the next day and borrowed it. Well, the rest is history, I've been painting rocks ever since!

I also love to paint on wood Christmas ornaments. I create the design and then paint it on the ornament freehand, fun!
I also paint your pet or child on the larger ornaments. I include a Santa hat and "your" words on the back.

Thanks for visiting,
Cynthia

Frequently asked questions
What if I have an idea for a painting?

I'm all ears! Just convo me with your thoughts and we can discuss it.

How big are the portrait rocks?

The rock for a single portrait is about 5" x 5" give or take. Every rock is unique and the shape will vary. The cost for this size is CAD $140 + shipping.

Double portrait rocks are about 9" x 6" give or take. They are CAD $260 +shipping

Do I have to pay upfront for my custom order?

Yes, full payment before I start.
We will convo each other with questions and ideas and I really want you to be happy.
I strive to do my best work with every portrait and want you to be thrilled.

What is the process if I want a portrait rock done?

*PLEASE, before you purchase send me at least one good photo. The more the better!

*I'll let you know if the photos are usable.

*Let me know if you want any names or dates on the rock. (Front or back)

*We get the finances out of the way and I start painting.

*I will send you photos when I'm done for your approval.

*Then I varnish, let it cure for a day, then ship it to you!

Please don't be shy about questions or thoughts. I may contact you too with questions.

What photos should I send?

Please send good clear jpeg photos. I cannot paint what I cannot see!
Close-ups and full body (for pets)
Outdoor or natural light is best.
A large pixel size if possible.

How long does it take you to paint my portrait rock?

It depends on where you are in the queue.
It shouldn't be more than a week or two in most cases.

Do the portraits have to be on a rock?

No!
I have small flat panels as small as 4" x 4" I'd be happy to paint on if you don't want a rock.
