COMMISSION A PAINTING
If you would like to commission a painting please email me. For portraits and almost anything else I can work directly from a photograph as long as it is your personal photo, or just give me an idea of what you want. I thoroughly enjoy developing a concept.
When you commission a painting I will work with you from start to finish.
When considering how much you want to spend on a commissioned painting, whether it’s of your pet or a concept you have, please keep in mind that it takes a considerable amount of time to finish a painting.
Price guide for commissioned portraits:
SEND ME A PHOTO of your pet and I’ll paint a portrait for you in pastel, acrylics or oils!
Please be sure to send a clear picture and feel free to send a few different copies. If you want a specific background you can send a photo for reference or give me a general idea of what you want the background to look like. If background is not important to you I will use my own discretion.
My turn around time is 6 to 10 weeks.
Your portrait can be any size up to 20″ in either dimension.
Shipping and handling costs will be determined once we make arrangements.
5 x 7 – $150
6 x 6 – $150
8 x 8 – $200
8 x 10 – $275

An initial nonrefundable deposit of $100 is required as a good faith gesture on commissioned paintings, which will be deducted from your total cost. When the painting is finished I will email you a photo of it and upon your approval we will finalize the transaction.
