Portrait Information and Pricing
I love painting animals! Companion pets, spiritual totem guide or an imaginary friend --- I can provide you with a custom portrait.
Portrait prices include a photo session with your animal if you live within 70 miles of my studio in Spencer, NY. (Additional travel costs apply over 70 miles @ $1/mile.) I will photograph your animal companion in natural light in the environment they are familiar and comfortable. Their behavior and your interaction with them helps me develop a composition that makes them shine!
I will also paint from your photos. At least 5 photos in natural, good light are needed so I can get a good sense of your animal companion. Photos can be digital or prints, sent email, snail mail or in person.
Add up to $150.00 for each additional animal, or a scene with buildings, or tack. Additional pricing depends on how much additional detail is added. When you contact me to do a portrait, we will discuss options and details. Please include a phone number with your contact information and best time during the day to reach you.
Custom watercolor portraits are painted on 300pound Arches 100% cotton rag paper with professional quality paint, delivered to you un-framed. I prefer that you choose your own custom mat and frame. I am available for custom framing consultation. A painting is usually completed within a month of ordering.
Add up to $20 for shipping and handling within USA.
Thanx for considering me as your pet portrait artist!
