Portrait Fees

All Portraits are done in oil on canvas or linen. Portrait cost is determined by the portion of the figure in the painting rather than the painting size.

Prices are based on:
Bust (head and shoulders)
1/2 to 3/4 Figure
Full Figure
Portrait in the Grand Manner

Portraits will be life size or under. (Except in special circumstances, larger than life size figures appear unnatural.)  Travel and expenses are additional charges.

*Additional figures and pets: For each additional figure in the portrait, add 50% of the cost of the first figure. For each pet in the portrait add $800.00

One-third payment deposit is requested with the signing of the contract and establishes a place on the artist's waiting list/calendar. An additional one-third is requested when work begins and the final one-third, plus the tax on the whole, is paid at the time of delivery. You will receive statements as these payments come due.

Prices listed do not include frames. If the client wishes, the artist will be glad to assist in the frame selection.
