A good friend of mine introduced me to Jerry, and when I saw Jerry's betta paintings, I knew right there and then I had to feature them on Bettatalk. 

Jerry's fascination for bettas sprung years ago when he started keeping and breeding them. His love of bettas combined with his love for arts yielded the first Beautiful Warrior paintings. For the last 20 years, Jerry has been painting as well as carving bettas. Jerry has carved many trophies for the IBC show circuit and IBC conventions. As you see, Jerry is an established artist for the betta world, and has been at it for a while :).

The beauty of our Betta Splendens ("Beautiful Warriors") is immortalize forever. Flowing finnage, vibrant coloration, striking pattern and bad attitude :), all the traits we love so much about bettas are captured in each of Jerry's paintings. I asked him if he would be willing to immortalize some of my coolest strains, and he gracefully rolled up his sleeves and went right to work :). I immediately fell in love with the Dreamcatcher he painted, as well as the Apache male. So I talked to Jerry about painting some beautiful bettas for you guys. We sat down and discussed the best way to go about this and how we could keep the prices so reasonable that all of you would be able to afford one or more nice betta paintings. We devised several options and price ranges for you:

 

  1  -  S I N G L E     B E T T A     P A I N T I N G S
 

Beautiful original artwork made with pastels, acrylics and colored pencils on a 6.5 X 5 inches acid free card stock. Pick from a large collection of strains. Each is hand painted upon your order and signed by artist. Order more than one and save on shipping. Add to your collection at any time. A nice way to decorate your fishroom walls, or display your artwork above your betta jar at home, or even decorate your desk at work.

These lovely betta paintings can be yours for the neurotic ;) price of only $40 each. Shipping via priority mail will be $5. You can have multiple artworks mailed to you for the same $5 fee. Two paintings, nicely spaced on a wall above a table can look quite nice in deed :).

Depicting two males displaying for each other, these 8.5 X 11 paintings are larger than above single betta paintings. You can pick any two strains pictured above and Jerry will paint them displaying for each other (and for you :)  ). As you see, the combinations and possibilities are near endless! Each of these paintings is made specifically for you upon order and signed by the artist. This is what the end result may look like (should you pick a blue halfmoon male displaying for a cardinal red male). 

These larger 'duo of betta' betta paintings can be yours for the very reasonable price of only $60 each. Shipping via priority mail will be $5. You can have more than one 'duo of betta' mailed to you for the same $5 fee.

Feedback from a customer:

Dear Faith:

I wanted to make it a point to write and tell you how much I ~love~ the Betta Painting that I ordered in the "Betta Art" section!  I think it's amazing, the way Jerry was able to "capture" my fish, and paint him;
everyone "recognizes" who it is!  I treasure the painting, and think that other Betta lovers would probably adore these paintings as well.

Take Care,
Holly

 

Immortalize your VERY OWN betta by having Jerry paint it for you!! (Yes, he will do that). Provide a photo of your favorite betta via email and it will be executed  with pastels, acrylics and colored pencils on a 6.5 X 5 inches acid free card stock. For the sake of Jerry's sanity, all bettas will be portrayed against a solid background similar to above paintings. 

These custom betta paintings can be yours for the very reasonable price of only $60 each. Shipping via priority mail will be $5. You can have more than one mailed to you for the same $5 fee. 

Note: Remember, this is ART. Do not expect the original painting to look exactly like your photo, if it did, you might as well frame your photo and save yourself the $60 LOL.

Got both the pictures and the Raku - LOVE THEM ALL - will buy frames for the pictures and am having a hard time deciding where to put the Raku Betta - so right now it is next to my two Betta tanks (2 Eclipse Explorer System 3 with 1 Betta in each - one fish to one tank).  Very beautiful work and I will recommend it anyone I know interested in fish!  Thanks again.
