Commissioning a Portrait


SEPTEMBER 23, 1972, acrylic & charcoal on canvas, 60 in. H x 36 in. W, $5720.00Cdn

I’m pleased to announce that I’m now offering to paint portraits by commission. The love of both paint and of a special little girl have brought me to the enjoyment of portraiture. Through my experience of painting my granddaughter I’ve realized the importance of recording the special people in our lives.  To have a painting from a moment in the life of someone you love is a tremendous lasting pleasure. This also includes our furry family members. That I can provide that pleasure to others is very satisfying for me.


Commissioning a portrait can be very straightforward. I am offering portraits in 3 mediums with 3 different corresponding price points. You will find specific details in the appropriate mediums sections.


You can provide photo references or you can have the artist take the photos. Details on consultation with the artist.


Prices are for 1 subject, head only, simple colour background. Additional subjects, add 75% each. For any further additions please discuss prices with the artist. Paintings are priced as unframed, but framing can be arranged at additional cost.


Commission begins upon artists receipt of 50% down payment. Paintings take from 4 – 6 weeks. Final payment is required on the acceptance of the painting by digital image. Painting will be shipped on receipt of final payment. Sales are final, there is no money back policy.


Shipping costs and gst will be added.

Shipping is through Canada Post.
