Get your Painting & Save when you Give.  It’s easy, here’s how:

My sketch of my son & our dog
  1. Reserve your painting with a deposit here on this page
  2. Make a donation of just $25 (or more) to Make a Wish>> (any time before your painting is ready)
  3. Email or message me a copy of your donation receipt and I’ll take 15% off of your entire painting price

Note: If you are making a donation for a particular Trailblazer Team as part of the Make a Wish Trailblazer Challenge, you can make your donation on their individual page and it works the same way.

Why?

My son Aden is a two time cancer survivor, and beneficiary of a Make a Wish trip.  And I myself hiked the Trailblaze Challenge a few years ago to raise money for this amazing cause.  Thank YOU for helping THEM. I’m honored to create paintings for such big hearts.  Thank you!


Note:  A painting reserved today will be delivered in January. 

If you are ordering for a Christmas Gift I am happy to send you a certificate and brochure for the recipient to open so they know their painting is coming. 


“I just want to let you know that I got my painting and I’m so in love with it.  My horse is my best friend and it captures his personality so well. I’m literally in tears and so grateful.  Thank you for  taking time out of your life to share your talent with me through my pony!  Take care and I’ll definitely be ordering more!” – Astraia D.

1. Rectangular:

These come in 3 sizes.  These are assembled by hand using multiple planks of wood.  We carefully plane, cut, and assemble using high end pocket joints & non-visible screws (these canvases are furniture quality and will not separate and show virtually no seams).

We then continue the process with sanding, staining & Tung oiling for a beautiful finish.  Your painting is then created in fine oils, signed, and sealed with lacquer. It does include a hanger on the back & comes with a thank you letter & care instructions from me.

Choose from 4 sizes:

X-Large: 36″ x 27.5″ | $1050
Large: 30″ x 22″ | $850

Request Your Custom Quote

I am happy to create any size or type of painting that you’d like.  My partner is a wood artisan and can create virtually any size or shape canvas, even using different species of wood.  Because everything is custom, we can create a painting to suit any size space, or style decor. I look forward to talking with you.

Please use this area to give me a brief description of what you would like created. For instance, is it an animal, landscape, or human? Is there a particular size you'd like, or a spot in your home where you'd like it to hang?

 


After You Reserve:

You will get an email from me (artist@alpha-mare.com) to confirm your order. We will discuss your piece, and I will give you an estimated completion date, and you will get photos of your finished piece to make sure you love it before the remaining balance is due, minus your deposit.


Common Questions:

Do you paint other animals?  Yes. You may choose from any of the sizes above and simply request a different animal when you receive my confirmation email.

Do I need the perfect photo?  Absolutely not.  Most people typically send me several photos for reference, and I create a unique painting.  As long as I can see your horse’s features, coloring, and unique markings over multiple photos, I can use those to create a wonderful, unique painting for you.  The horse does not even have to be posed in the position he’ll be in for the painting, although if he is, that’s certainly nice!

What if I’d like to have multiple subjects in one painting?  I am happy to do that.  Please add an additional $100 per animal, or $200 per human, in each painting, regardless of size.  This will be added to your final balance.

Get in Touch with Me:

I am happy to chat with you before & during the painting process.  The best 3 ways to reach me are email, Facebook, and texting/calling.  I am usually available all day and in the evenings, but it may take me a bit to respond, as I’m usually painting. Thank you!
