Updated Price List 9/2014

Prices vary on the size of the painting and the amount of people you want in each painting.

How it works... you email me photos of who you want drawn/painted. I do a "liking" of said child/person ... (examples to include: eye color, how they wear their hair, braces/no braces, glasses/color of frames, wear flowers in their hair or headbands, always wears a cap, etc... then if they have a favorite color or are in sports, etc... list their hobbies and if you want to include a saying/quote/scripture, any type of wording)

Before I actually start the drawing, I double check with the client to make sure we are on the same page in terms of size, what each painting will consist of and the correct wording.

5x7 drawing/painting for one person is $20.00 ....
5x7 for two people is $25.00
***2 people can be in a 5x7 but no details can be added and a tiny quote too but nothing too big or anything else can be added

8x10 for one person is $30.00
8x10 for 2 people is $40.00
8x10 for 3 people is $50.00
***2 to 3 people can be included to an 8x10 but the price for more than one, starts at $40...

10x13 -- up to 4 people in this size... starts at $50 and goes higher
11x14 -- families up to 10 people... starts at $60....
12x16  -- starts at $70 ..

Larger sizes start at $100 and higher

*******************************************************************************

All of the above just include the drawing and watercolor paints used on watercolor paper.

I can add a frame to each order and that is an additional $10.00+ per frame.

** I add 6% SD tax to the order....

If you live in Yankton, delivery/ pick up is free; all other orders are mailed by priority mail and the customer pays for shipping/postage.

I accept: money orders, cashiers checks, cash and can do by PayPal but I will charge you the fee that Paypal charges me to do it this route.

I do need to be paid first before I start any order ... and the turn around time once payment clears, is 72 hours.

All sales are final.

All of my watercolor paintings are sprayed with a fixative spray so that the watercolors never run should the painting get wet once it is in the client's hands. Also after it is sprayed, no changes can be made to said painting. (Ex: sometimes a client will call back and want another person added to the completed painting, and it simply cannot be done.)

I've been a professional licensed artist since 2007, but been creating paintings for people, long before that. Out of all the paintings I've created, I have had only 4 people dislike what I created for them. But again, I stress, it is extremely important to discuss everything in great details before I start a painting for a client.

Also there are many things I cannot draw and will tell you up front immediately. For example, I cannot make people sit or do much with their hands, etc.. It seems silly but my brain cannot tell my hands to draw it that way. I've tried a zillion times over but I still cannot master that type of drawings. Check out all of my imagination to get a feel of what I can and cannot do. If you want me to attempt to draw something, I may add an extra fee as it will take me a lot longer than my usual speed to complete your order. This is why I like to discuss in detail what you are wanting for your order.

***Prices are subject to change at any time.***

Thanks for your support,

Amy S. Petrik

My New Business Cards

My new business cards greeted me today at the Post Office. Huge thanks to my favorite online print shop: MAGIC PRINTS  .... I have been using their services since I believe 2006. They are quick to ship and inexpensive with their prices. 

And my phone number is to text me. I rarely answer the phone to unidentified callers. Or email me. I always respond to emails unless you're from Sri Lanka and telling me I just won five million dollars. 

Come check out my latest paintings that I have done for clients at https://www.facebook.com/wetinkwisdom67

About the Artist:  Amy Susan Petrik 

Amy S. Petrik is a professional licensed artist, writer and graphic designer from Springfield, South Dakota. Amy has a Bachelor of Arts degree from Mount Marty College in Yankton, South Dakota. She became a professional licensed artist in 2007.

Amy’s whimsical artwork is a combination of drawing with black markers and vibrant watercolor paints. She is capable of painting in abstract and surreal designs as well but her first love is doing her whimsical cartoon art. She also has done work with limestone and bronze sculpting.

The site will offer you a look into her vivid imagination. Everything has been created with vibrant watercolor paints, pencils or watercolor crayons along with black ink. Amy never creates anything twice and each creation is an original hand drawn, hand painted painting.

Some of Amy's personal interests are getting together every July 4th with her siblings and her mom in their childhood hometown of Springfield, SD; exploring garage sales and antique shops looking for treasures; going to small town festivals like Czech Days in Tabor, SD where she relishes in her Czech heritage. Amy is thankful for her wonderful and adventurous childhood she had and camping all over the United States with her family. Amy gets her inspirations for her drawings from the oddities of daily life and her surroundings.
