Feline Pretty

So, I officially opened an Etsy store for custom pet portraits, and to celebrate, and I’m going to give one pet portrait away for free! Hooray!

If you would like a custom portrait of your beloved pet (or favorite animal, whatever), all you have to do is visit my store, Feline Pretty, and leave a comment here on my blog. Get yourself two entries if you favorite my store! What a deal!

For those of you who voted that you’d pay a warm beer for a custom portrait, this is your chance to get away with even less than that! I had a hard time figuring out how to price items, but after doing an in-depth market analysis (went to a few other Etsy sites) and testing the client temperature (random survey results), I priced my items around the midpoint for oil paintings. However, as my loyal blog reader, if you’d like to commission a painting, you can use the coupon code LoyalBlogReader to get a 15% discount now through the end of August. I know the portraits seem expensive, but I promise I’m only paying myself like $10 an hour.

Anyway, thanks for letting me post about it here! I’m hoping to do a regular post this week too, although I’m coming down with a cold so I’ll have to see how much my body decides to hate me.

Forgot to mention, I’ll pick and notify a winner on Tuesday, May 27th! So get on it!

  5. How did you managed this? It is so hard to take a photo of birds, yet you make it seem so easy!!! Love the colours!


  6. Good luck, Rae. I’m sure you will do really well with this. If I had a pet, you would be my Etsy.


  7. Awesome! Your self motivation and drive is inspiration for us all. Hope the Etsy store goes well!

    This is cool! I favorited your store and one of your paintings, and will rec it to friends on Tumblr! I hope you get tons of commissions, and that I can have one done for my kitties someday. Have you thought about doing prints of some of your comics from this blog?


  9. Congratulations on opening your store! The portraits on your blog are fabulous so I’m sure you’ll be an amazing success.
