Portraits

Here’s how it works:

  • See the Pricing and Ordering panel on the right for a general estimate of cost.
  • Send me your photo or photos; by e-mail or through the mail. Photo should be high resolution, of good quality, crisp and clear.
  • Let me know what you would like to see as the finished product or I can offer suggestions.
  • After seeing your photo and taking into account the complexity of the subject, size and style you would like, I can give you a price. (Price includes a single neutral-colored mat. Framing is not included.)
  • If you agree to this price, send a check or money order or pay through PayPal, and I will begin the drawing.
  • Drawings usually take 3 to 4 weeks to complete, however, during busy times of the year, they could take longer. If you need it by a certain date, let me know, and I’ll see if I can meet that deadline.
  • Upon completion, I will send you an electronic pdf proof or a proof in the mail.
  • Upon approval, your art work will be mailed to you.

I use conventional framing sizes. Drawings should fit these frames with the included single mat.
