Portraits in Oil

Timeless Works Of Art

As a classically trained portrait artist my goal is that you feel totally satisfied with the portrait commission experience overall, and of course, with your painting. My work is based on “word of mouth” referrals so client satisfaction is my top priority. Pricing varies depending on your preferences. Prices increase based on the number of subjects, props, background and size. I can give you an exact price after we discuss your wishes and your budget.

Please, feel free to email me if you have questions about commissioning a portrait and CLICK HERE to review my Oil Portrait Fees.

Commission Process

I require a 50% non-refundable deposit to begin the order and the remainder is due just before shipping. If payment is not received, the portrait cannot be shipped. Packaging and shipping will be added to your invoice as a separate line item.

Due to the nature of my custom work, I take every precaution to package the portrait properly to ensure it arrives safely. I am obligated to create The Portrait in a professional and craftsman-like manner. If, within ten (10) days after the sale is final, the Purchaser is not satisfied with The Portrait, the purchaser can return The Portrait to the Artist in the same condition as it left the Artist’s studio at the Purchaser’s expense and the final payment will be refunded by 50%.

1. Email & Discussion

Email me your wishes and photo. We can schedule a chat over the phone to discuss the pose, size, photos and fees. I will use your high quality photo references, if I cannot take the photos myself.

2. Down Payment

Upon agreeing on the Portrait specifications, a 50% non-refundable deposit is required before I begin. This allows me to schedule the time dedicated to the project, purchase and prepare materials and plan for studio sittings if appropriate.

3. Creating Your Portrait

Depending on the complexity and size of your painting it may take up to 6 months to complete. Throughout the various stages of the painting process, I keep you updated via email and am happy to answer any questions.

4. Final Payment/Delivery

I require the final payment upon completion and will deliver your painting if you are within 100 miles of Santa Fe. Otherwise, we will make arrangements for the painting to be shipped directly to you. Packing and shipping costs not included in my Oil Portrait Fees.
