Description

A unique Piece of Art, a special item in Memory of your Beloved Pet and a great Gift Idea!

This is a SAMPLE of one of the types of pet portraits that I do on natural sea rocks. It's painted in high quality acrylics on a smooth stone and protect with a strong matt varnish coat.

All my works are UNIQUE PIECES, FINELY DETAILED and accompanied by a CERTIFICATE OF AUTENTICITY. A great gift idea!

I paint all kinds of animals: cats, dogs, bunnies, guinea pigs, parrots, butterflies, etc.
I do the painting from photos supplied by the owner. Please message me your pictures for a custom order or send them at robertorizzo72[at]gmail.com. The best photos to work from would have the image of the pets as large as possible in light and possibly no-blur.

Prices may vary and depends on the size of the rocks (for the perfect likeness I suggest a portrait of at least 5 inches or largest).
Sizes available & prices:
4” (10/11 cm) --- € 180.00
5” (12/13 cm) --- € 250.00
6” (15/16 cm) --- € 350.00
7/8” (18/20 cm) --- € 500.00
10” (24/25 cm) --- € 700.00
11/12” (30 cm) --- € 900.00

HOW TO ORDER:
1. Start by sending a message outlining your ideas, and share as many photos as you like here by Etsy Conversations.

2. We discuss prices and sizes that suit you and your photos and anything else relevant, such as a deadline if it is a gift for example.

3. Once you are happy with the best option, choose the preferred size to pay in full to secure your order and my time. Once your order and payment comes through, you will receive an Etsy message to confirm the date you can expect your work will be finished.

** I work with passion and love. My goal is to capture not only the likeness, but also the SPIRIT and PERSONALITY of your beloved pets. **

A Brief History of my Work:

I first met the magic of painting stones in 1996.
Rock painting art made me discover and explore acrylic’s potential. Currently it’s my favourite technique even when I paint on canvas.

I love rock painting for its ability to mix the old and the new (it’s no accident that this fascinating technique was born in very ancient times!). Nowadays I dress my sea stones with very versatile new colors, which guarantee great resistance in time.

In the past few years I created thousands of creatures of all shapes and sizes. I don’t paint only animals, but they are by far my favourite subjects, because painting them literally helps me to bring inanimate mineral matter to life.

All my artworks are unique and the rocks I use are not processed at all. I always honour every hole or imperfection that Mother Nature has carried out in decades; moreover, I try to exploit it through drawing with nuances and light and shade effects.

Roberto, you are as talented as you are humble. The level of detail that you achieved with charcoal is unbelievable! Your drawing looks like a photograph.

To other Etsy members, I am so pleased with the raccoon Roberto drew that we are discussing possibly a portrait of my son. I encourage everyone to buy Roberto’s art.

Painting is beautiful, the photos do not do it justice. An amazing talent.

Communication with the artist was fantastic and reassuring when being shipped from Spain to uk. Arrived when it said it would, and confirmed that I was happy too!

Thank you
