Portraits generally take between 6 months to 1 year to complete. Prices include initial photo session and meeting, as well as delivery of the portrait. It does not include framing. Additional costs may incur for travel over 50 miles, additional photo sessions or meetings, changes after approval, and rush charges.
Commissioning a portrait takes time but is an easy process for the client. It starts with an initial e-mail or phone discussion. If we decide to proceed, I will schedule a photo shoot with the subject or, in some cases, I will review your existing photos. I will send you a detailed invoice; a 50% deposit is due at this time. I will create a sketch and small color study for you before the full-sized portrait is started. That's it! The rest of the time is spent patiently waiting for the artwork to be finished, approximately 3-6 months
When I ship artwork, each piece is packed with the utmost care and is insured. Framed artworks are shipped by UPS or FedEx. Smaller, matted (but not framed) artworks are often shipped and insured by USPS.
I want you to be completely thrilled with your purchase. When the purchase is made directly from my studio, there is a Guaranteed Satisfaction policy. If not completely happy with your purchase, please contact me directly. Items should be returned within 30 days, using the same box and packaging material. Shipping, handling, and insurance must be provided by buyer. Refunds are given if art is returned in exact condition received.
Works are always packed carefully and insured, and I have yet to ship a painting that has arrived with any damage. If, however, damage occurs, please contact me right away and send a detailed photo showing the packaging and the art. The images sent will enable me to determine if the art can be fixed, replaced or returned.
I can be reached at [email protected] or 412-951-9144. I look forward to hearing from you!
