About bluedogrose

Sales 15,126
On Etsy since 2006

Making art makes me happy.

This shop is named after my favorite color (blue), animal (dog) and flower (rose).

I have been selling on Etsy since 2006 and am happy to be here. I very much enjoy interacting with creative people and wonderful customers from all over the world. The support for my art has been awe inspiring. Creating and selling my art is how I make a living, and that's always been my dream.

I have several rescued animals, but ironically I don't have any rabbits. Maybe this is why I paint so many of them! I used to have a small brown dwarf rabbit who lived with me in my early twenties in a one room apartment. His name was Foucault, and I like to believe he lives on in my art. He's the twinkle in the eye of all the bunnies I paint.

Thank you for visiting.

Additional policies and FAQs
All original items in my shop are created by me and are one of a kind. Once made they cannot be exactly reproduced, however, I can create archival prints of most of my sold and existing paintings.

Images shown here, especially paintings, may differ slightly in hue, color and lightness due to variations on individual computer monitors. I suggest clicking the enlarged view before you purchase to see the item in more detail.

Watermarks shown in images are only in the digital form as copyright protection and will not be present on the original, unless noted in the description.

The artist retains all reproduction rights and copyrights to the artwork in this shop even after sale. The images, originals and reproductions may not be reproduced without the artist's express written consent.

All paintings and ACEO cards on this site are painted from memory, I do not work from life or photographs except for the occasional animal portrait.

Pricing is based on size and complexity of the work as well as the quality of the finished item. Some items may go on sale or have reduced prices if they have been in my shop a long time.

All paintings and prints are made using archival quality papers, inks and paint so you can enjoy your new art for a lifetime. It is recommended that artwork not be hung in direct sunlight.

I work in a smoke free environment, but I do have dogs that keep me company for those with allergy issues.

I do sell wholesale for some items in my Etsy shop to verified accounts, please contact me for more information.

I am convo friendly! Please contact me if you have any questions.
