FEES

PRICES COMING SOON

These prices are for one figure only, and includes a simple non-detailed background. For group portraits add 100% for each additional figure. For a more elaborate detailed background, there will be an additional fee. A 50% deposit is required prior to commencement of the commission, plus any upfront expenses (i.e. photo shoot or out of town travel expenses). The balance is due upon completion and acceptance of the portrait, and may be picked up or delivered upon the client's request. A digital preview of the completed portrait is e-mailed or shipped to the client upon request.

 

Pricing does not include photo shoot expenses, travel expenses (outside of Houston and surrounding areas) or shipping expenses. Matting and framing are additional, and I will provide assistance in framing the painting if requested.

 

Texas residents add 8.25% sales tax to final price. Most major credit cards are accepted. Checks are accepted after they have cleared.

 

Prices are subject to change without notice, but will not affect commissioned paintings in progress.

PROCEDURES

The portraits I paint are close to life size. I primarily work from photographic references. I meet with the client to set up a photo shoot that is taken by a professional photographer at his studio or at the client's home.

I also accept existing photographs from the client. The photographs must be clear and at a reasonable size so that I may be able to capture an accurate likeness of the subject. The size photograph I prefer is an 8" x 10" and no smaller than a 5" x 7". I can also work from black and white photographs if the client is not able to supply color photographs. I will only accept a commission once I have determined that the photographs the client supplies are suitable.

 

Once the client and I have come to an agreement, I will present a contract for the client to sign. The client then puts down the deposit and a schedule is setup for the portrait commission to begin. Please allow 2 to 6 weeks for completion depending on the number of figures being painted and my scheduled work load.
