This is original mixed media art celebrating Dia de los Muertos: I paint traditional calavera motifs in acrylic gouache on top of a giclee print of my original watercolors, adding pen and ink on top, to achieve a vibrant, intricate and bright portrait of a sugar skull puppy.  This is a one-of-a-kind original piece of art, painted on 64 lb. high-quality art paper, created just for you.  You can choose from ANY image that I have available as a print in my shop.  If you would like to commission sugar skull designs on your individual pet, I can do that too - check out the 'custom pet portrait' listing for more detail.


NOTE:  I will be painting this pup to order, so please allow 1-2 weeks (contact me if you need it sooner) for preparation.  The design will look similar to that in the photos.  Let me know when ordering if you have color preferences and which mat color you prefer! 


The paper size is 11" x 8.5" (28cm x 21.5cm).  With the mat, the exterior dimensions are 11"x14", which fits perfectly in a standard-size frame. The image is centered on the page. The colors are very vibrant in person. 


The painting  will ship wrapped in a waterproof cellophane sleeve, along with pieces of stiff cardboard so it won't bend in transport.
