These whimsical custom pet portraits are delicately painted using high quality watercolor paints (including gold!) on aquabord. As the sunshine hits your pet portrait throughout the day, it will shimmer and catch the light and reflect the joy of your pet's face. Aquabord is an archival, acid-free textured clay surface that absorbs watercolors like a fine paper. However, it allows colors to retain their purity and vibrancy in a way that even the finest watercolor papers can't match! I seal your custom piece with a matte finish so you can confidently display or frame the art without glass. 

Your custom painting will be created with an array of colors in a painterly, impressionistic style with a subtle shimmering gold accent. You may choose from a flower crown, bowtie, or scarf as your pet's accessory. Please let me know if you have a color preference, otherwise I'll choose a flattering color. This painting will bring out your pet's personality and be a treasure for years to come! 


Painted on 5x7 or 6x6 aquabord depending upon your pet's face shape.

Upon purchase, please send me a photo of your pet via email: ***The best photos to paint from are taken at the pet's eye level while they're facing the light (versus their face being in the shadows). This allows me to see their face shape and eye color at the most flattering angle. You can send a few photos and I can pick the one that would translate best to a painting if you like!*** 

Your portrait will be shipped in approximately 4-6 weeks from the date I receive the pet photo you'd like me to paint (not 4-6 weeks from the order date unless you send me the photo the same day you ordered).

Shipping is free for orders within the U.S., but if you’d like insured shipping with a signature required, please add that to your cart within my shop. ArtLaBeau Studios is not responsible for lost or stolen packages.

*I do offer payment plans if needed. 1st payment due to book painting, then 2nd payment 4-6 weeks later to complete purchase and ship. Please email me at Lauren @

Please let me know if you have any further questions. Thank you!
