Would you like to commission a portrait?
The cost varies depending on size and complexity.
My Policy: Since I don’t want anyone to feel obligated to purchase a painting if it doesn’t turn out the way you hoped, so what I do is ask you to pay a fee for the cost of materials and part of my time. As long as I complete the painting as requested, this fee is non-refundable.
Non-refundable Commissioning Deposit: $100
Upon completion (if it is pleasing to you) you may purchase the painting for the price which depends on size and complexity.
Pet Portraits: 8X10″ – $250 / 11×14″ – $350 / 16×20″- $450
These are prices for simple portraits from a photo. If there are other subjects, and other specifications or complications the quote may be higher.
For example, an oil painting from a photo like this one:
To a painting like this:
Human Portraits are about double the above price.
I can do paintings from photographs, or from a combination of photos and real life. Obviously, I will be painting the portrait in my own style, but I will consider your requests for certain affects or other such things. And please note–to keep myself from losing sleep about the portrait–I like to make it clear that I am taking the deposit as payment for starting a painting of your subject matter. Then I will paint it as if it is my own, and when it is done, offer it to you for sale at the agreed upon price, but you are under NO obligation to take it. This makes it easier for me to sleep while I am working on the painting!
