About

Spirit Art

In 2009 I was seeking to start an online business and a friend told me about a currently growing art form. Miniature collectible paintings. They were called ACEO (Art Cards Editions and Originals). These miniatures were tiny....2.5 inches by 3.5 inches. Just the size of baseball trading cards. These little paintings were affordable and I loved the idea of painting miniatures. I began to translate my larger spirit painting genre to the small size. Let me tell you that coming down from painting a 22" x 30" size to mere inches takes some adjustment. I reduced my paint brush size in the beginning, but eventually returned to using some pretty big brushes to paint those itty bitty paintings. Getting everything into the painting took some effort until I realized that I had to only paint portions of my subject. I kept painting and my work grew into what you see in my shop today. Although I still paint larger watercolors my love is the little guys. When I sit down to paint one I finish in one sitting. I like that part especially because it keeps everything fresh.

I work alone as always and from my home studio. My moon is in cancer so I have to be pried out of my domestic surroundings. However, I do very much enjoy communicating with friends, family and collectors of my art. I live in the San Bernardino mountains about 70 miles east of Los Angeles. It is very wild and I draw inspiration from my rugged surroundings. There is an abundance of wildlife here which I have often painted and described. It is my piece of heaven here on the mountain.

Shop policies

Last updated on September 9, 2013
Welcome to White Dog Art. Every piece of art that I list for sale has been created by me with the utmost attention to quality and detail.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
My preferred payment method is Paypal.

PayPal is the safer, easier way to pay and get paid online. The service allows anyone to pay in any way they prefer, including through credit cards, bank accounts without sharing financial information. If you do not have a Paypal account you will be prompted to set one up when you click on the Paypal payment logo. It's easy.
Shipping
I ship USPS first class or priority depending upon the package weight.

My shop policy is to ship within 3 days of receiving a cleared payment, however, I make every effort to send your art within one day.

I package my art well so that it will arrive in the same excellent shape in which I sent it. Neither you nor I want damaged art.

I will always combine multiple art pieces when possible in order to charge you the least amount of postage.
Refunds and Exchanges
I want you to be totally satisfied with the art that you purchase. If you are not, you may return it within 7 days in the same packaging it was sent and in the same excellent condition in which you received it. Buyer pays return shipping and, as soon as the art piece returns to me, I will issue you a refund for the cost of the art item ONLY. Beyond this policy are possible situations which would require different handling. So please know that I will always be willing to work with you to resolve any problem.
