How to commission a drawing:
I work strictly from photographs. I prefer to take my own but obviously that will not always be possible online. I can create beautiful portraits from photographs that are mailed to me. If you are interested in a drawing, please contact me by email or phone and we will discuss what you would like, the specifics and the cost. Once everything is agreeable, you will mail (or give if you are local) me a small number of photos and will fill out a client information sheet that I provide you. We will both sign an agreement to assure all services and payments that have been agreed on will be met. The drawing would be completed in a matter of weeks and shipped, insured,(or given) to the you.
If you are local to this area I would prefer to take my own reference photos if possible. In that event you will be able to choose from a small group of photos to assure you get the drawing you truly want.
I also do step-by-step blog posts of my current project so you can watch your drawing come to life as I work – Click here to see examples.
I also accept commissions for animals other than your own pets, such as wildlife, birds, marine life and so on. In addition to commissions I offer a variety of already completed drawings as well as other items (seen on on store page??)
I accept checks, money orders and Paypal. I require a deposit of 1/3 of the price at the start of the commission and the rest when the painting is complete. Please see below for more terms and conditions.
Keep in mind that while I try to make sure the sizes of the completed drawings are close to exact, they may actually be off by about an inch in either direction.
8″ x 10″ $100.00
9″ x 12″ $200.00 - My Preferred Size and the One I Work in Most Often!
11″ x 14″ $300.00
Other sizes are available on request
30% extra for each additional large animal (after two) (i.e. horse)
10% extra for each additional small animal (after two) (i.e. dog)
$30.00-200.00 for mat (depending on size)
shipping charges & travel cost, if any, to be determined
2 or more animals must be on 11″ x 14″ paper or larger and no more than 1 animal on paper smaller than 11″ x 14″
Please ask if you would like something different than what is listed here.
