Not unless a customer requests it and pays additional shipping.  However, the paintings come matted on high quality, acid free matboard in standard sizes so customers may purchase an inexpensive frame "off the shelf" at several stores.  for example, Joanne Fabrics, Hobby Lobby and Walmart.

I can complete a custom, handpainted watercolor in as little as two weeks, but it's nice to have about a month's notice.  Holidays are busier, so order early as I sometimes must turn down requests for custom work because I have too many orders.

Yes, I can make many changes when I take a photo and create a watercolor painting.  I can add flowers, bushes, move tree branches, remove items like telephone poles and wires ,etc.  Just ask me! 🙂  There are some things I am unable to do, such as paint a home from a different angle than the photo.  

Lovely watercolors are all about light and shadow, so try to get photos with good lighting and shadows.  If it's a pet photo, send me several pictures of the pet so I might get a real feel for the pet's personality.  And of course indicate your favorite.   

For a home portrait, I'll need one of the EXACT angle you'd like the painting done, along with some others showing details you'd like included, such as window frames, door decor, or parts hidden by trees.  And of course we'll discuss the painting before I begin, so I'm sure you'll be happy with it.
