HOW TO ORDER
PET PORTRAITS, SEASCAPES & LANDSCAPES
My fine art commissions are recreated with love & care to replicate your pet exactly.
🔷OIL PAINTINGS (Windsor & Newton Professionals Oil) on Linen in the “realism” style of the “Old Masters”, painted in glazes for luminosity. Linen canvas is the finest available.
🔷COLORED PENCIL: Faber Castell Professional Pencils on Crescent board.
Choose Oil or Colored Pencil. 🔷Send me an email to b.sailer77 AT gmail.com
🔷 Please indicate the “general” size you have in mind (see the list below).
🔷Choose from options: Face Portrait | Face & Shoulders | Full Body
🔷BACKGROUNDS: Oil Paintings will be a color gradient to compliment your pet. Colored Pencil: White – the natural color of the board.
Complicated Backgrounds: A scene, plants, etc. Add 15-30% - I will quote for you.
🔷TIMELINE: 4-6 weeks for completion on Oil Paintings, & longer for large art.
Oil Paintings require a drying period of a minimum of 2-3 weeks (after completion) so that I can VARNISH your Portrait – protecting it from the elements for hundreds of years.
🔷Colored Pencil; generally, less time – based on size, etc.
📧 Email a few photo selections. Suitable photos are: 🔶High Resolution/High definition to eyes & face. 🔶Closeup 🔶Eyelevel 🔶Natural clear light
🔴Remember: The eyes are the window to your pet’s soul.
Book your special Portrait with a 50% deposit through PayPal (Friends & Family). I can also
request from you via Pay Pal -if it helps. Once I receive payment, I’ll email you an invoice detailing everything – for the full agreement.
🔷GIFT CERTIFICATES: Gift a special person. Purchase for a specific size/amount. The amount
can be secret – if you wish. I’ll mail you the certificate.
🌈❤️Memorial Gift Certificates are a lovely way to honor special pets – over the rainbow bridge.
I send you (beginning stage) images when your Portrait begins. Continuous photo updates are posted to Instagram/Facebook with your permission only. 🔶Surprise gifts are not.
OIL PORTRAITS: Very carefully packaged to prevent damage. OIL ESPECIALLY – requires much time/materials to ensure paintings don’t move + the FACE does not touch anything in the box.
🔷Shipping costs: Small 6” x 6” Oil Paintings $13. Medium up to 16” $30. Larger – I quote you the EXACT cost from USPS (with zero charges for my packing materials).
🔷USPS Priority Mail with TRACKING NUMBER – 3 days average to US locals. 🔷Colored Pencil: Ship flat/in non-bendable packaging. The average is $9. - $13. Will quote.
🌎INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: Will quote the cost of shipping- NO charge ever – for packing materials.

🌿 Be assured that my Fine Art Oil Paintings are guaranteed to be the very finest quality – lasting for generations.
🌿 My art is “realism” and carried out in the style of the “Old Masters” with layers of glazing for luminosity, and a “gem-like” appearance that simply can’t be achieved any other way.
🌿 I take no shortcuts – I don’t use plastic – acrylic paint, and I don’t create “computer-generated” art.
🌿 I paint on the finest Linen Canvas, and my Colored Pencil drawings are guaranteed perfection as well. I look forward to creating your MASTERPIECE.
