Commission Information

COMMISSIONS
If you are interested in commissioning a portrait or other piece of artwork, I would love to hear from you. I work very well from clear photographs as well as from life.

PROCEDURE
Please contact me to discuss your project. Each portrait is a little different, and I like to get to know my clients and understand exactly how they envision their commissions. We discuss sittings (if working from life) and/or photography sessions, sketch review and approval, painting completion, transportation, payment schedule, and any other questions or concerns. Once begun, a portrait usually takes between 4-8 months to complete. 

PAYMENT 
Once the project has been discussed, a 50% deposit is due to begin the process. The balance is to be paid after the portrait has been received and approved by the client. Transportation, framing, and shipping are not included in the cost estimates below.

FRAMING
I am happy to provide framing consultation for any piece - paintings, drawings, originals, and prints - for a fee of $20. I am also happy to take care of the framing process for you. Framing costs are not included in my portrait fee.

SHIPPING
Shipping cost will be determined situationally at the outset of each purchase. All shipping prices include suitable insurance and tracking information.

ATLANTA, GA and AUBURN, AL AREA - I deliver for free within Auburn, AL and Smyrna, GA; also within a reasonable distance for a small fee depending on each situation.

 (not including Illustrative portraits*) is as follows; please contact me for a specific quote.

*Pricing for Illustrative portraits will vary per commission. These portraits take a great deal more effort in development, and are priced accordingly.
