Announcement   Welcome to Moonshinebluebirds. The fluidity and transparency of watercolor lends itself extremely well to capturing the essence of a person or of a pet. They make wonderful gifts and also memorials to a loved one.

It is of highest importance to me to capture the likeness and character in my paintings, this includes the animals that I paint. After all you would know your Fido from another.

The process is simple, you can purchase one of my custom listings if it fits your needs on size and send me a photo (or more) of what you would like me to paint. I will ask you some questions regarding the painting, often of the background choices and whether or not to include certain items (like tags/collar). Once you purchase the listing I will get right on painting it! If you need a rush be sure to let me know as I am usually able to work with you on that!

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions, we'd be happy to answer them and thank you for visiting.

I'm so happy with my purchase. My parents' beloved dog Riley passed away late last year and my parents really miss him. My dad is retiring this month and I know he had hoped to spend time with their dog during his retirement. Since he can't, I got him this lovely watercolor that he can hang in his workspace at home where Riley used to sit while dad worked. I couldn't be more pleased with how it turned out!! Great seller with a beautiful talent! Edit: I gave my dad his gift at his retirement party and he was so touched. It brought a tear to his eye. He showed it to everyone who came to the party and I'm so delighted that he loved it so much. :)

Additional policies and FAQs
How do I order a custom painting?

There are custom listings in the shop for various sizes. If you see one that fits what you need, purchase that listing. If you do not see what you need listed, send me a private conversation and we will work it out.

I paint from a photo that you can send me through email, or Etsy conversation. You can send me more than one photo if you need some assistance on which one to choose.

I will then ask you various questions on specifics of what you would like done.

After it is finalized I will create a mock up digitally to illustrate how the painting will be oriented on the page. Once you approve it, the actual painting will begin.

For commissions under $200 I will require payment in full before I create the mock ups. On commissions over $200 you can request a 30% deposit payment first. Once the mock up is approved the balance will be due before I start the painting. Be assured that I strive to make sure you are happy and understand how important these portraits are. I will make every effort to create a likeness and for it to be more than satisfactory to you.
