I do prefer to frame my paintings where possible, this ensures the safety, as pastels as a medium are extremely delicate, so minimal handling is necessary. Paintings are stepped away from the glass using spacers in the frame rebate, this allows any dust particles to fall into the recess. I use the finest pastels on the market which are lightfast against strong sunlight so it is not necessary to use expensive UV filtered glass. Vigilance is still necessary and I would not advise hanging paintings in direct sun.
Custom sizes can be arranged which may be necessary for multiple animals.
I can provide a rough mock up taking out any background in the photo and replacing with tonal colours. This will give you an idea of how it can look. One or more pets can be put together from separate photos, as I know how difficult it is photographing your pet, and much more difficult if you want them together. Some factors are to be considered when putting two or more photos together and this can be discussed in more detail over email or telephone.
