The dimensions of the painting might be different from the sizes shown in
the chart as the composition will determine the best layout.

Detailed backgrounds are subject to quote. Price quotes for additional figures on the same canvas are available upon request. Travel expenses for the artist are generally included. Framing and shipping are in addition to the price listed above.

A deposit of 40% will be due in advance. The balance is due at completion of the painting and acceptance by the client.
If you prefer a payment plan, 30% is due in advance and the balance is spread out over monthly payments before delivery of the finished painting.

THE MAKING OF A PORTRAIT

The first meeting can be either at the home of the subject or at the artist's studio. The basic composition, size, pose, format, type of clothing, tone, background, and lighting are all considered. A series of photographs is taken.

The photographs are analyzed and the final decision is made as to pose and tone of the painting. If necessary, additional photographs can be taken at a second photo shoot. The photo shoot is included in the price of the painting.

On the occasion that the subject is not available (as in a posthumous portrait), the portrait can be created using available photographs.

 Artistic license is taken to bring out the beauty and 
color often lacking in photos, while faces stay true to their subject.
