Your original oil portrait will become a family heirloom. It will be passed down from generation to generation and treasured. Only the finest archival pigments and panel are used.
Please contact me by phone or email to inquire. I am only able to take a limited number of commissions in the course of a year, so if you are planning for a special occasion, be sure to contact me four to six months in advance.
This mural was created in honor of a recently deceased member of Baker's Gap church. It is the backdrop to the church Baptistry.

SOME FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
HOW MUCH DOES A COMMISSIONED PORTRAIT COST? Commissioned portraits in oil start at $250, depending on the size and details included. 12"x16" $300 16"x20" $375 24"x36" $450 Half the fee is expected at the beginning of the project, and the remainder upon delivery. For more than one person, add an extra 50% per person.
CAN YOU USE A PICTURE I HAVE, OR DO YOU TAKE YOUR OWN? I prefer to photograph the subject myself so that I can control the lighting, point of view, and other factors that are important to the quality of the portrait. But I can usually work from your existing photographs if I need to. This is often the case if the subject is geographically far away or even deceased or if you want to use an image from an earlier time. It helps to have multiple images so that all the details and the personality can be captured.
CAN YOU DO A WATERCOLOR OR PASTEL PORTRAIT? Watercolor paintings or pastel or charcoal drawings are also available. They must be framed behind glass. They don't take as long, so the cost less with prices starting at $125.
WATERCOLOR is a great medium for architecture. I love doing homeplaces and cabins in watercolor.
