One person, head & shoulders, with a simple background
(loose - not extreme detail)
Any travel, framing and shipping expenses and sales tax are in addition to the portrait estimate.
Larger sizes, one or more people
—Any size available, including custom sizes—
Price is based on the following criteria: the number of people or pets in the painting; how much of each subject is to be depicted; the size of the actual painting itself; the intricacy of clothing, jewelry and props; and the complexity of the background setting.
"Together, we'll capture your special story through a Portrait in Oil"
My goal is to create the most beautiful oil portrait commissions possible. I follow a set procedure to best ensure that each of my
commissioned oil portrait paintings lives up to the highest standards.
I work from high resolution, high quality digital files. (unless that’s not possible)
If you desire for me to do the Photoshoot, it’s $250 This includes travel time if it’s in areas close to New Orleans or Baton Rouge.
Allow about one hour of photographing. After editing, the best of the photography will be sent to you.
I will work from several photos if deemed necessary. I deduct this photoshoot price from the portrait’s deposit.
Then the painting process begins.
I will happily work with you to accommodate small changes. Your satisfaction is my primary concern.
A portrait is a very time consuming process. Painting time will usually average 4-6 weeks from the start.
(Unless you're getting a very small portrait, a larger one with more details, or if I am working on several projects)
Updates will be sent to you throughout the progress.
In the end the painting will be as original and priceless to the owner as the people within it.
It will be a true heirloom, enjoyed for generations to come.
Your absolute satisfaction is guaranteed.
