I use a photo of your pet as a reference for the painting, which you send to me via email: krystle [!at] krystlecole.com
▶︎▶︎▶︎▶︎ Here's How It Works!
· You provide several photos of your pet for me to use as a basis for the painting.
· The photos need to be head shots with clear focus and good lighting, so I can see the facial features well. I use the exact pose from the photo as reference for the painting (see pictures above).
· I discuss ideas/plans for your painting with you via email.
· I paint each painting by hand with acrylics, transforming your pet into a beautiful rainbow of colors.
· Your painting is finished within 2 to 6 weeks, depending on my schedule. When you purchase, you're automatically next in line in my queue.

Size of Custom Paintings:
16 x 20 inches - I use .8 inch thick museum quality gallery wrapped canvas. I paint the image around/along the edges. I also wire each painting so it is ready to hang. It can be framed in either a cream, black, or custom color wood floating frame (see pictures of frames above) for an extra fee.
Medium: Acrylic on Canvas
Cost: $375 with frame, $350 without frame
Payment Options: I accept payment in full upfront or 50% down/50% upon completion. If you select the 50/50 option at checkout, I will email you an invoice so that you can pay the remaining 50% with credit card once I've finished your painting.
Shipping: I ship worldwide. Your painting will be insured and packed with care. If you live in the Wichita, Ks area you can also pick up your painting in person at my gallery; if you purchase online and pick up in person, I will refund the shipping charge that is automatically added by my shopping cart.
♥ Happiness Guarantee ♥
The main reason behind why I LOVE painting animals is the joy my work brings to people. I love seeing huge smiles on everyone's faces! So if you're not completely happy with your painting, I will issue a full refund. Here's how - prior to mailing your finished painting, I will email you several photos of it. At that point, I can either make adjustments or issue a full refund if you aren't satisfied.
Copyright: I retain all copyrights and reproduction rights. This means I might make prints of your painting to sell in my gallery and online. If I do, I will give you two free copies of the print.
Answers to Common Questions:
**At this time, I'm not making paintings that include more than one pet.
**I don't paint pets in black and white or normal/naturalistic colors. I paint them in rainbow colors only.
**I can make a painting in a larger size than 16x20, please contact me for a custom quote.
**I don't paint smaller sizes than 16x20. A lower priced option is to purchase a print of a painting I've already made; I've painted around 200 animals, so I may have painted one that looks like yours! Prints start at only $17.99 and are available for purchase here https://www.krystlecole.com/shop

I package my fine art prints in clear archival poly bags. Then, depending on the size, I either ship the print rolled securely in a tube or laying flat in a bubble pack envelope with rigid mat board supports. All orders are insured and will be replaced if damaged during shipping (but this rarely happens!).
I package my original paintings with extra care. Each painting is wrapped in wax paper, then a layer of foam wrap. After which, it is sandwiched between two sheets of cardboard and secured with tape. This cardboard/painting packet is then wrapped with bubble wrap. It is placed in a heavy duty cardboard box that has at least 2 inches of space around the painting where I add more bubble wrap and/or bubble bags. All orders are insured. I've shipped all over the world and never had a painting damaged in transit (knock on wood!), but if it were to happen, I could paint another similar piece to replace it or refund the order total.
