I don't blame you! That's why I offer a guarantee where I assume the risk, not you.
People can be understandably nervous when ordering a one-of-a-kind custom work of art of someone they love dearly from someone they don't know -- and over the Internet, no less! They imagine opening the package containing their much-anticipated portrait when it arrives and feeling their heart sink when it doesn't meet their expectations. Then begins the anger over wasted money!
You do not take delivery if you are not 100% delighted with the final scan of your pet's portrait. You will not owe the balance of the commission payment and I will even refund your 30% deposit. (If this should happen, I will keep the portrait, which will be offered for sale to other buyers.)
I'll assume the risk (because, frankly, I haven't had to return a deposit yet!). You don't have anything to lose, but do have a whole lot to gain: A beautiful portrait to remember your best buddy for years to come!
But wait, there's more…
However, I can promise a pleasant surprise when you open the package containing your original work of art! Scans and photographs never do justice to original art (that's why the Internet hasn’t put art museums out of business). The Real Thing always has special impact.
If you love your portrait on your computer monitor, you'll be thrilled with it hanging on your wall! Details will be more delicate, colors more vibrant, shading more subtle, and textures more vivid than you expected!
