From Photo to Painting


My hand-painted commissioned artwork focuses on capturing the most life-like representation of the subject. 

Therefore, I will involve you as much as possible throughout the painting process.


1)  Select which photos to send   

The quality of the photos is important in capturing the subject. Since my portraits are very realistic, I need clear and detailed photographs to obtain the best likeness of the subject being painted.


2)  Contact me, and we will discuss your vision for the portrait  

We will discuss the pose, setting, background and other features of your portrait.


3)  Send the deposit and photos  

Upon your satisfaction with the design, and after any final negotiations are agreed upon, $50 will be due as a non-refundable deposit for me to continue with the painting.


4)  View the portrait

I'll send you a digital image (via e-mail) or a hard-copy image of the sketch if necessary and later the painting for your approval, at which times we could discuss any possible adjustments. Your complete satisfaction is guaranteed!


5)  Send the remaining balance and receive your painting

Upon receipt of your final payment, I will ship the painting to you as well as any original printed photos that you may have sent.
