If you are interested in commissioning a painting, please email some photos and we can talk a little bit about your ideas, whether you are interested in watercolor or oil, the specifics and the price. I can create a beautiful painting from your photos, but if your image is too small in the photo, blurry, the eyes are too closed, or the colors show incorrectly, creating a likeness can be very difficult. (I reserve the right to decline the commission if the photo quality is insufficient for my portrait standards). See photo examples and tips on photographing your subject. If your subject is deceased, I will try my best to work with what you have. I prefer to paint simple backgrounds that enhance the colors in your subject. More detailed backgrounds or complicated compositions will raise the price accordingly.
