Custom order for a watercolor or oil painting of your favorite pet size 8x10 inches [20.3 x 25.4 cm]

Your cat owns part of your heart and deserves the best. What could be better than a hand-painted portrait? I take extra care to capture the unique features that you love most about your favorite feline friend.

The images shown above are examples of portraits I have done. Yours will be painted to order from your photos.

- I will paint your order on heavyweight archival watercolor paper OR on acid-free panel with professional oil paints - your choice
- Size: 8x10 inches [20.3 x 25.4 cm]
- Unframed so you can have it framed the way you like.
- Once you purchase the portrait, I will send you a link to a pet questionnaire which includes information on images to send.

Do you have more than one pet? I'll be happy to add them to the portrait for a discounted price.

Frequently asked questions about ZehOriginalArt

*A WATERCOLOR is painted on heavyweight paper with transparent watercolor paints which gives it a fresh, crisp look. Because it is painted on paper, you will need to protect it with a mat and frame with glass front. Framing finishes a watercolor beautifully and makes the entire art piece larger.

*An OIL PAINTING is painted on canvas with oil based paints. It has texture and a rich look. I paint the side edges of the canvas so you don't need to frame it unless you wish to. I ship oil on canvas paintings in special boxes to protect them. Since oils take 1-2 weeks to dry, keep your freshly painted custom oil in the box for a week or two until completely dry to the touch. At that time, you may hang it with the enclosed wire.
To keep the colors bright, I use acid-free materials and professional permanent colors for my original paintings. Prints are made at a professional lab using the highest quality archival inks and papers.
This means that the prints will not discolor over time. Original paintings will last for generations! You can be confident that your art piece will bring you a lifetime of satisfaction.
*WATERCOLOR paintings and PRINTS on paper will stay looking their best when enclosed in an acid-free mat and backing and then framed with a glass front. Keep artwork out of direct sunlight.
*OIL paintings with painted edges do not require a frame. If framed, no glass is needed. They may be varnished with spray varnish made for oil paintings found at arts and crafts stores. Varnishing is optional, but it adds a layer of protection to keep the painting clean and bright.
**For new oil paintings, wait at least 6 months for the oils to fully cure before varnishing. However, the painting may be hung and/or framed as soon as it is dry to the touch. Oil paintings may be cleaned with a soft cloth which is slightly dampened with water if necessary.
I ship original paintings to the USA, Canada and Australia from my studio in Connecticut.

I ship fine art prints to the USA, Canada, the UK, EU, and Australia. Print orders from the USA and Canada are shipped from my print lab in New York. Print orders from the EU and Australia are shipped from my print labs in the UK or Australia depending upon your location.

I am happy to ship original paintings and prints internationally to all other countries with the understanding that you are responsible for any customs fees, duties, tariffs or other taxes due upon arrival in your country.

If you do not see your country listed under Shipping, please request a custom order, and I will make a custom listing for you! Thank you.
Contact me with your ideas and the approximate size you would like. I will give you a price and time frame for completion. A 50% deposit or full payment (your choice) is required before work is begun.

In certain cases, a sketch will be made for you to approve before I begin the painting. Upon completion of the painting, I will send you an image before final payment. At either time, you may request changes if needed. I want you to be happy with your painting!
YUPO® is a synthetic paper that I have recently started using for some of my watercolor paintings. I like the spontaneous effects and brilliant color that result with this paper. I also like the fact that it is non toxic even during production. All paintings on this substrate are identified as YUPO paintings in the description.

This tree-free paper is made from inorganic compounds and is 100% recyclable. It is waterproof, so it does not buckle when wet as ordinary watercolor paper will during the painting process or when displayed in humid conditions. The paper is produced without the use of toxic materials that can harm the environment. Its primary raw materials are carbon and hydrogen, so it does not emit toxic chlorine gas.
