Commissioning a custom one-of-a-kind portrait painting for you or someone you love is really easy.
I prefer to work from photos -- the more the better -- because I have yet to meet the creature, either two-legged or four-legged, who can sit still long enough for me to capture a perfect likeness on canvas or even a sketch!
If the subject of the portrait painting lives in my area I can take the reference photos myself...otherwise you email or send to me via regular mail as many photos of the subject as you can find.
Once I receive the reference photos I will start sketching and then together we will decide on the best pose to use for the finished painting. It is a fun process and you will be an important part of the creation of the painting.
People say I my work is surprisingly affordable! Here are the fees for an heirloom quality, old masters style oil-on-canvas painting:
5x5, 5x7, 8x8, 8x10 or 9x12 $350.
10x10, 11x14 or 12x12 $400.
12x16, 12x18, 14x18 or 16x20 $450.
18x24 up to 24x36 $500.
