Ordering a portrait of a special pet? It's easy!

ORDER PROCESS:
    1)   Pick out your two or three favourite high resolution* photos that you have of your pet. Photos need to be sharp and well lit for best results.

    2)    Email the photos along with the size you’d like painted or drawn to glicksart@gmail.com to receive feed back on suitability.

    3)    To place an order, a non-refundable 50% deposit is required, and you need to send me, via regular postal service or courrier mail, an 8 x 10"print of the photo I will be painting so that I can faithfully match the colour, if that is your wish.  I cannot guarantee the colour of my painting will accurately reflect
photos sent by email as my printer may not match the colour of your pet. If this is not important to you, there is waiver to sign on the order form.

    4)  When the portrait is complete, I will send an email with the attached image of the portrait for your approval.  At this time, if you would like to see any changes done (as long as it does not deviate from the order form and photo), I will be happy to change it.

    5)    Once the painting is ready, the remaining 50% deposit is due.

* How to tell if your photo is high resolution? it would be at least : 300 DPI, at least 1 megabyte, approx .780 x 1000

COMMON QUESTIONS:

Q1: “I can’t decide on which photo I would like painted, can I send more than one?”
A1: Yes – please feel free to email over multiple photos, and I’d be happy to help suggest which would translate best into a painting. TIP: please ensure photos are clear & crisp – the more detail in the photo the more detailed the painting can be!

Q2: “What sizes do your Pet Portraits come in?”
A2: Common sizes are on the pricing chart, however alternate or custom sizes are also possible. All painted portraits are painted on 1.5″deep gallery wrapped canvases.

Q3: “Which methods of payment do you accept?”
A3: To keep things flexible, there are a few different possibilities: Interac e-Transfer, certified cheque, cash, or PayPal (for Visa or MasterCard use). If you have questions about any of these methods, feel free to contact me and I’d be happy to help.

Q4: “How long is the order time?”
A4: As order time fluctuates throughout the year, an eta will be provided at time of ordering. However, since there is an influx during the Christmas season, please budget for at least 8 weeks. If a rush is required (eg: birthday gift), it may be possible depending on my order schedule. Don’t worry though – order time can be confirmed prior to taking the initial deposit.

Acrylic Painting details:

 ▪    The background will be removed and painted a solid colour. If you have a particular colour you would like please indicate at time of ordering. However if you have no preference, I’d be happy to select the most complimentary colour to your pet.
 ▪    If you would like a background in the painting  (vs. a solid colour), this is possible at an additional charge.
 ▪    The edges of the canvas are painted matt black (unless otherwise specified). Portraits done on canvas are ready to hang frame free.
 ▪    If you'd like something removed (e.g. a collar) it will be my pleasure to do so at no additional charge.

Graphite Drawing details:
  
▪ The background will be left white or lightly hatched (if the pet is a light colour, to create contrast).
If you'd like something removed (e.g. a collar) it will be my pleasure to do so at no additional charge.
Acid Free paper is shipped un-framed and un-matted.
