Jan Stein Bringing Pets And Art Together, Celebrates Special Paintings, Posh Pet Hotel and Whimsical Pet Sculptures

“Cat’s Meow and ARF Art” is being introduced by West Palm Beach-based (Baby Boomer/CreativeAging) Artistic Consulting Professional Jan Stein. She remains true to her several passions: 100% Visual Art; loving pets, and involving multi-generational professionals.  The Pet Posh Hotel ( PPH), Paint-On-Picture (P-O-P) and “Cat’s Meow and ARF Art” come together as we celebrate National Arts & Humanities Month (October) and National Cat Day (October 29th).  Within this article, The Rickie Report shares unique art-related and special pet-related gift ideas.

Since 1993, October 1-31 has been proclaimed as “National Arts & Humanities Month”.  As productive Baby Boomers, this generation is being increasingly recognized as America’s Creative-Aging (60+yrs.) entrepreneurs. Jan Stein tells The Rickie Report, “Maybe for the first time, to satisfy “freedom of expression,” and/or for financial need-based pre-retirement income, millions of fellow Boomers continue to explore new facets of the arts and humanities in their personal lives and business endeavors”.

Jan consulted with a highly imaginative CreativeAging Palm Beach-based Visual Artist and Gallery Owner, Sheila Payne, and an open-minded Pet Industry local businessman, Lincoln Baker to bring the public The “Cat’s Meow and ARF Art”.

Jan tells us, “POSH PET HOTELIER (PPH) Lincoln Baker, his wife Stacey and Artist/Gallerist Shelia Payne for “going to the dogs, and for being the cat’s meow,” in a “paws-a-tively” entrepreneurial style. When the Bakers and Payne embraced the suggestion to integrate Visual Arts (making and appreciating) into their business models, we combined our goals with unique Visual Arts products for a timely collaboration that launched a seasonal sales offering that celebrates National Arts and Humanities Month, and National Cat Day, upcoming October 29th”.

 

 Who let the dogs in?

“A smARTistic Poodle, whose business it is to walk small fiberglass pooches, depicts Sheila’s hyper stylistic pet-specific style. Payne’s whimsical art prompts miles of smiles from PPH’s pet-loving-artsy-appreciating human clients and staff. Payne’s sculpture is a key artistic that augments PPH’s service-based business. The sculpture enhances the reception decor, which also includes a hand-crafted feline tower, designed by Stacey Baker’s dad, which is for sale”.

P – O  – P

Into Your Life!

 

 

As a loving Maltese-mom and PPH client, Jan collaborates with PPH to bring Stein’s one-of-a-kind giclee (digital photo, transfer on canvas) artist-quality print product that is known as “Paint-on-Picture/P-O-P.” Jan takes clients’ digital images and transforms a plain printed picture into a canvas print that POPS with paint. PPH is currently displaying a framed P-O-P sample that represents the meticulous work of a Graphic Art-Print Master, a Fine Art painter and framing professionals.

Jan Stein offers personalized service to make sure that your photos receive the proper care necessary to make them family heirlooms.  Jan shares, “I feel strongly about artistic integrity and quality materials. My artist team makes your plain picture POP!… this is the difference…it is not plain, not banal, not boring”.

How Does It Work?

1. Clients send me their high resolution digital files  emaginate@gmail.com their (any subject…wedding, kids, pets; nature/travel; memorial, etc). If you have a hard copy, traditional photo,  it will be scanned scanned and digitized

 
2. Our print master reviews your file(s) in order to qualify clarity, contrast and color saturation.

 3. Once qualified as a clear image, if there are color corrections needed, backgrounds modified, stuff removed, or if hairs flying that you want removed, etc., our print master and I will consult with you before moving forward. 

 4. Our print master uses professional EPSON equipment with liquid ink to print your image on a poly-cotton quality art canvas.
 5. After it has dried, your giclee is sent to one of our professional artists.

6. This is where the magic happens….the canvas is stretched by hand, over wooden stretcher bars that are built by hand…using art brushes and acrylic paints, our Visual Art professional hand paints accents on the canvas surface.  This artist will add accents/highlights, but does not alter faces, or the main picture. Additions of embellishments and texture remain true to YOUR picture.

 7. 16″ x 20″ (horizontal/or vertical) is $600.00 plus tax plus Fed Ex cardboard art container and shipping/insurance. (Cost to ship is based on zip codes within Florida are approximately $40-60).

 8. Turn around time (considering printing, mailing, painting, clear coat drying, framing, shipping is 2-3 weeks, during holiday season).  Larger dimensions are available and options such as having the artist paint accents or only having clear coat are possible and will priced accordingly.

9. We use Golden brand Acrylic paints, which don’t fade, crack, peal or yellow and a Protective Clear Coat, which is applied by hand.  This helps with UV exposure, but we suggest you do not keep any artwork in sun light.  Gloss or semi-gloss are options.  Frame: Basic white or black wood with a decorative thin silver outline. 

10. Your artwork is installation ready: easy to hang, with “d” rings and coated wire. You’ll need a 15 lb hook.
