How to Commission a Painting

I can create your commissioned painting from photographs you send me or I can take the photos for you for a minimal travel charge.   See Photography Tips on how to take photos of your loved one, pet or house.  

Most 9" x 12" and 12" x 15" pastel paintings fall in the range of $275. - $325. for one pet, one person or one house.  Additional subjects are $50. each.  Oil portraits and custom sizes are available as well.  Gift certificates are available.  

A 50% non-refundable deposit is due when I accept your commission and before starting the painting.  Turnaround time depends on how many commissions I have but generally is about a month.  Please let me know if you need the painting for a special occasion and I will try to accommodate you.  If you are interested in a painting for Christmas, I suggest placing your order 2-3 months in advance.

When I have completed the painting, I will send you a digital copy via email.  You will then have the opportunity to accept the painting or suggest changes to be made.  When these changes are complete I will again send you a digital photo via email for your approval. Upon acceptance I require the balance due after which I will send the painting to you.  Professional packing and shipping charges will be additional.  Payment can be made by check or money order.  

Since matting and framing preferences vary from customer to customer, I will send the pastel painting unmatted and unframed or the oil painting unframed.  You can then take the painting to your local frame shop and select the mat and frame of your choice.  If you desire to have me mat and frame the pastel painting or frame the oil painting, let me know and I will quote you a price.  

To commission a painting or to find out more information, send an email to me at or telephone me at 978-371-0731.
