How it Works
1. Complete the submission form
The submission form above provides me with everything I need to complete your painting(s). I will respond within 24 hours to confirm your request/payment has been received as well as when I expect to begin work on your painting(s).
2. Get weekly progress updates
You can expect to receive weekly updates on my progress (or your place in my painting queue if demand is high). It typically takes 35 days from the time I begin work on your painting until it’s in your hands.
3. Receive your new oil painting
As soon as your commissioned painting is finished, dried, and packaged it is sent on its way–complete with a certificate of authenticity and a guide on how to frame and care for it.
How do you paint your portraits?
I hand paint every portrait with artist grade Gamblin oil paints. These paints are highly pigmented and resistant to fading. I paint on warp resistant MDF panels with a 3/4″ profile. These panels are ready to hang as is or can be framed.
How much do your paintings cost?
Prices are dependent on the size of the painting and how many subjects are included. You can see the costing breakdown in the commissions form above. I can provide a quote if you are looking for something specific that isn’t listed. Just use the contact form below to let me know what you have in mind.
If I want multiple pets or people in the same painting, do they need to be in the same picture?
No. I can combine photos of pets or people so they’re in the same painting. The photos will need to be similar in pose and lighting for best results and I will need a photo that shows their size comparison.
What forms of payment do you accept?
You can securely pay your invoice online instantly through Wave (my payment processor) using a credit card or secure bank payment (ACH).
Do you offer framing for your paintings?
How much does shipping cost?
All shipping is free within the continental US.
Do you ship internationally?
Yes. The shipping will be added to your order as costed from the regular postal service. There may be additional customs fees at the time of delivery. I have no way of anticipating these and therefore cannot provide the exact amount that will be due beforehand.
How long does it take to complete a painting?
I use traditional painting techniques similar to those used by the master artists of the 15th century. Because of these methods it can take up to 4 weeks to finish a painting. Please take this into account if you are requesting a comission. If you need the painting by a special date I can work with you to try and achieve that goal.
Can I request changes to the painting before it's shipped?
Absolutely. After you see the final proof you can request as many reasonable changes as you need to until you are 100% satisfied for no additional charge.
