Portrait Paintings

The decision to commission a portrait is an act of faith, just as the decision to accept the commission is, but my love for painting animals and people (especially children) goes a long way toward ensuring that the process will go smoothly for both parties. No fee is expected unless the client is satisfied with the outcome.

I like to start by meeting the subject to be painted and perhaps making sketches, but this is not always necessary. Generally I will go on to work from the client's photographs and/or ones that I have taken.

All portraits are in oil on linen canvas and are priced according to the following sizes, unframed, shipping included:

8" x 10" to  9" x 12"                      $145.00 

16" x 20" to 18"x 24"                   $250.00

24" x 36" to 30" x 40"                  $450.00
