3crows

Hi there, my name is Sara Pulver and I am the captain of this little art ship called 3crows, the 3 in 3crows stands for Me, Myself and I.

Painting and making things seems to have become my mainstay and I feel lucky for the serpentine set of circumstances that have led me to this place called My Life Right Now. I live a simple one by the great Lake Ontario, where entertainment is a backyard full of birds and a serendipity-kissed blessing of 3 dogs of various sizes and temperaments. (in shorthand: turns out the stray we took in was pregnant.)

I have developed numerous series, most of which you can find in my shop and also have a penchant towards making things out of found or tossed objects. I love doing custom paintings of families and their pets and find that I have something unique to add to the vast field of wonderful illustrators here on Etsy.

Here's how 3crows got it's name:
About 20 years ago I was walking down the street and all of a sudden these birds were making a terrible racket. I looked up and saw that it was three crows cawing away. I'd always heard that three crows was a sign of something bad, death of some kind, so I sarcastically muttered 'great' and the racket stopped just as suddenly as it started.
I never forgot those three crows cawing and I was actually thinking of them about 10 years later as I was flipping through a book on Native Americans. I said to myself, "I wonder what MY Indian name would be." And right at that second I turned to a page with a picture of three crows with their mouths open, like they were cawing! And an Indian name was born.

I am not Indian though I do admire the culture, especially the respect for the animals and the planet. I feel like we've gotten pretty far away from that kind of regard and I guess at the core of my painting happy cats and dogs and whatnots is the hope of inspiring people to care and to take care of all living things (maybe not fleas), and also to sort of send a little flag up to the people who get it (hey!).

Thank you for stopping at my shop! I'm Sara Pulver and I've been painting and making things for about 30 years now. I'm an animal lover at heart and that's pretty much what you'll see here in my shop. I also love to keep exploring creatively so you might find some odd outcroppings of other styles and mediums here in there, with heavy does of (hopefully) humor.

I do commissions on stretched canvas (5x7" are done on canvas panels). There are listings in my shop in the Custom Pet Portraits section for the different sizes.

All of the prints I offer can be made into cards or ACEO prints, and any 8x10 print can be made into a 16x20.

The frames on my pieces are for the most part upcycled, so there may be some imperfections but all are worthy of hanging.

I am striving for less waste so a lot of what I use to pack my work for shipping is now recycled. It may not be pretty but it will get there unscathed.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or comments.

Shipping
Most orders are shipped First Class via the United States Post Office. If you require a faster form of shipment, please contact me to arrange alternate shipping at an additional cost. Plus, I don't add insurance to any of my shippings so if you want to add that just let me know. Prints are shipped with non bendable materials and in cello sleeves. I am striving to reuse packaging materials, so it may not look pretty but I make sure everything is packed extra well before it goes out.

Orders are almost always shipped within 24 hours unless it is a custom order. I will happily ship to the recipient of your choice, as well as add a note on your behalf, no charge.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING - prices are quoted for USPS international first class mail unless a package is over the 4lb weight limit. packages should arrive in 1-2 weeks. First Class is the most economical method of shipping but does not have tracking or insurance. This means that once I ship your package we have no further information about it's whereabouts. I cannot be responsible for late or missing packages. If you would like to upgrade to priority mail or would like to purchase shipping insurance please let me know and I'll send you an estimate for the added costs. Any customs taxes are the responsibility of the buyer.
