Christmas 2016 tree contemporary folk art painting by BZTAT One hundred and sixteen days might might seem like a long ways off. It isn’t so long, though, if you are planning to make someone’s holiday very special this year with the gift of art.

When it comes to custom artwork to be given as holiday gifts, I like to remind people to order early. In order to have your custom pet portrait gifts completed and shipped in time for Hanukkah and Christmas, you must order before October 1, 2016. After that, I cannot promise to get it completed and shipped on time.

Customized pet portraits make wonderful gifts for people who love their animals as family. I have 4 portrait styles that fit with different budgets, including:

Premiere Contemporary Pet Portrait Paintings
Contemporary Folk Art Pet Portrait Paintings
Contemporary Pet Portrait Drawings
Contemporary Digital Pet Portraits

Order before September 7, 2016 and get 10% off of all styles of Pet Portraits!

I also have a number of non-custom paintings available, including the Christmas Tree painting you see here. Check out my Art for Sale page to see the full gallery.

Please let me know if I can make the holidays extra special for you and yours with an original artwork this year.

I hope your adventures are fun and creative today!

Life is an Adventure!

Stocking Stuffer Art Auction


Just in time for your last minute holiday shopping, I have created some small artworks for a Stocking Stuffer Art Auction!

You won’t be able to place the original in a stocking, as it will take some time to ship, but I will email you a coupon that will serve the purpose if you win the bid. So get bidding!

The first 5 drawings are “mini’s” (3″ x 5″) and the last 3 drawings are medium size (5″ X 7″), which accounts for the variation in minimum bids.

Each artwork has its own bidding page. Please do not leave bids in the comments of this post. Click on the images of the artwork below for which you’d like to bid. Simply leave your bid in the comments on the artwork’s bidding page, and keep checking back to see if others have made bids after you.

Bidding will conclude on Sunday, October 21, 2012 at 10 pm ET.
