Commission Cost

All personal commissions are negotiated on an individual basis. Each painting is very unique and requires different elements and details to combine an overall price.

The price is $5.00 per square inch of total canvas. For example, a 24 x 30 canvas is $3,600. The cost may vary somewhat due to multiple people, compositional detail and travel expense. All material expenses are included in the per square inch price. I use only the finest of oils and linen canvas. A deposit of half the agreed total price is to be paid at the beginning of each commission. My goal with each original painting is to give my client a treasured piece of art, for their family and their family’s generations that follow. I try to incorporate as many family heirlooms or sentimental items in the portraits as possible to really personalize your portrait.
