To order your one of a kind portrait, please send your request via email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "Portrait request," and I will promptly respond to discuss the details of your request. I will provide to you an estimate and approximate delivery date for your custom portrait. I work from photo reference provided by my clients, and I request that you provide sharp, well-focused photos with good lighting, contrast and detail of your subject(s) for the best final portrait. The better the photo reference, the better the portrait. I have provided samples of my work in the Gallery for your consideration. Listed prices are estimates, based on size, medium and complexity. Prices do not include shipping, or framing. Please click on the images for more information. Portrait sizes range from 8"x10," for a single subject, up to 14"x18," for 5 subjects, or larger, by special request. I recommend a minimum size of 11"x14" for multiple head and shoulders or full body subjects. Due to the number of current orders, I am accepting new orders 6 months in advance of delivery.
Terms of Commission A 50% deposit is required at time of order for all commissions to place your portrait in queue, with full payment due before delivery of your approved portrait. The estimated date I will begin your portrait will be discussed at time of cost estimate. I will communicate with you regularly with updates and photos, so you will be able to see the process and progress of your portrait. I accept payment by cash, check, Square or PayPal. You do not need a Paypal or Square account to use these services; however, there is a small fee added to the cost of your portrait for using PayPal or Square to process your payment.
