Commissioning a fine art painting is a significant undertaking.
A painting will last for generations, years after the family photos have long since faded. Regardless of the degree of complexity of the painting you commission, I strive to create an heirloom quality painting masterpiece of the highest standards.
Since a portrait painting is a collaboration between patron and artist, the first step is to establish a dialogue and determine the scope of the painting you desire. I will do my best to accommodate both your vision and your budget. When you commission me to paint your painting, you are dealing with me directly throughout the entire process, from start to finish. There are no intermediaries and this ensures your communication is direct and there will be no misinterpretation or misrepresentation. If anything, your expectations will be exceeded. Please contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss the painting you envision.
Painting fees start at $150. The price is based on the following criteria: the number of people, pets, or creatures in the painting; how much of each subject is to be depicted; the size of the actual painting itself; the intricacy of clothing, jewelry and props; and the complexity of the background setting.
Travel expenses, framing costs, shipping fees and any state or city sales tax, where applicable, are additional. A 50% non-refundable deposit is required when you sign the contract. When the completed portrait is finished and it meets with your approval, the remaining 50% balance is due upon completion, and shipping costs will be applied at this time.
Thank you for your interest; I look forward to working with you!
