Fall Portrait Marathon: the simpler version

I’m getting some feedback that my first post about the marathon was maybe a bit confusing.  Let’s see if I can be a little more clear.

What: I will do ten 5″x 5″ portraits, acrylic on canvas, of ANY species for $80 +shipping
Why: As a benefit for Creatures Comfort, a feral cat rescue program, which will receive $20 for each portrait 
Who: The first ten people to send me an email ON MONDAY, NOV 7th, after 9:00am PST, with a clear photo of their pet
When: The painting work begins Tuesday, Nov. 8th, and you can watch it here on the blog.

  1. Choose ONE photo, clear and high-res, of any ONE pet (dog, cat, hamster, ferret …), attach it to an email.  (tip: If you have a really big photo file, but it’s of the entire pet, crop it down to just the head, down to the shoulders.)
  2. The email should have your name and your pet’s name as the subject.  
  3. Send the email to xan@xans-art.com with 
    • your name and your pet’s name
    • any notes about your pet you want me to know, to help me choose a mood for the painting
subject: Humphrey Blackburn; Wabi  

message: Hi, Xan!
Wabi is a little thing, mischievous and cuddly. Her favorite thing to do is eat dandelions.  Attached is her photograph.  Can you put some dandelions in the painting, maybe?



   4.  I will send you a PayPal invoice.  When the payment goes through, and I’ve completed the portrait before yours, I’ll begin the portrait of YOUR pet!  😀  (If you’d prefer to send a paper check, we’ll work it out the details together.)


Better?  If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask.  Maybe someone else has the same one, and we can help them, too.  🙂
