Description

Custom portrait paintings make wonderful gifts for Christmas, anniversaries, birthdays, weddings, Valentine's day, Mother's Day, Father's Day, and other holidays.

How to order a custom painting..

1. After payment has been made, your job is to send me a reference photo to use. You can do this by clicking on the "Ask a Question" button on the Etsy listing or you can email me at mizkatie228 [!at] gmail.com. Feel free to send me as many photos as you like, and I'll let you know which one I choose or I can surprise you. Your choice.

To be honest, I prefer as much artistic freedom as possible when creating these little whimsical paintings. However, if you have a specific color that means a lot to you or to the person in the photo, please let me know. I'll see what I can do to incorporate it into the painting. Also, if you'd like to tell me something about the person in the photo, I'd love to read your story, especially if it's something I can use to enhance the painting..like say, your person loves to wear pink princess dresses, and carries a magic wand wherever they go. :)

2. Please let me know if you need the portrait by specific date, especially if it's fast approaching. Please be aware that delivery time can vary greatly depending on my schedule. The minimum waiting time is 1 to 4 weeks. November thru April is the busiest time of year for me, so it's best to order at least 4 to 8 weeks in advance to give us all peace of mind. I think we can agree that nobody likes to feel rushed, so if I have to make a fast deadline, there will be an extra fee involved. It will mean I'm pushing other work back, so it's only fair. If you would like an estimate of the current waiting time, please contact me before placing an order.

3. Once I have a reference photo, I will start to paint in my quirky, weird, painterly, naive style. My job will be to make a fun mixed media collage painting using your photo. Please note: this will not be a realistic painting. The painting will very loosely represent the person in your photo. I'll be using my imagination, and painting intuitively. I often exaggerate facial expressions and body types, just to make the painting look more interesting. I'm also quite fond of pink, blue, and purple hair.

Please see examples of my recent 5x7 paintings in the photos above, and also here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/mizkatie?ref=seller-platform-mcnav§ion_id=22570416

4. When your portrait is finished I will send you a photo of it. Your painting will be promptly shipped off to your home at this time. It will come to you packaged securely, and will include insurance. If you purchase multiple paintings, I will combine shipping, if possible, and refund any extra shipping you paid.

About this custom painting:

Artist: Katie Jeanne Wood
Size: 5x7 inches or 12.7x17.78 cm
Signed?: Painting will be signed, titled and dated on back
Medium: Acrylic mixed media collage. Will include a finish such as varnish or Dorland's Wax Medium to seal the painting.
Substrate: A flat panel, made of either canvas or wood, whichever I have on hand.
Shipping: flat envelope - Price includes insurance, and will require signature at time of delivery.
Subject: One person only. For portraits with more people please contact me for a price.

Ah, finally, a gift for myself. Everyone should own at least one of Katie’s pieces. She’s an incredibly talented artist, and a very kind and generous person.

Hands down, the cutest French bulldog artwork on the market! I framed this as a gift for a friend. Katie’s artwork is second to none. She’s great to work with, too.

Shipping policies

Shipping prints outside the USA:

I'm no longer shipping prints outside the USA.

Combining shipping:

I'm always more than happy to combine shipping when possible. Not all items fit together in the same size box or envelope, but I'll do the best I can to save you money. Any shipping charges overpaid, minus $1 to $3 to cover the cost of shipping material, is always refunded. If you're concerned about the cost, please message me ahead of time to be sure your items can be combined.

Correct address:

The buyer is responsible for providing me the correct shipping address. If you've recently moved, please be sure to change your address here on Etsy before making a purchase. If an item is unable to be delivered due to the wrong address, there will be an additional shipping charge that must be paid before the item is re-shipped.

Tracking your package:

Once your package has been shipped, you will receive a notice from Etsy that includes your tracking number. I strongly encourage you to check the tracking number and know when your package will be delivered.

Please check with neighbors if the package has been marked delivered by USPS, but is missing. It's possible USPS delivered it next door because you were not home. Also, look around outside your home or apartment because a couple of my paintings have been found in bushes and under porches before. If the package can't be found, buyers are encouraged to file a mail theft claim with USPS and the police. USPS takes mail theft very seriously.

International customers please note:

You are responsible for any taxes, duty and/or handling fees that could be charged by customs in your country. If you refuse to pay the taxes and a package is returned to me, all shipping charges are non-refundable. USPS is now charging sellers in the US return postage fees for undelivered packages. This will be withheld from your refund if you refuse to pay VAT and customs charges.
