Portrait Commissioning

Sepia oil portaits have a striking appearance reminiscent of antique photographs. 



It's easy and exciting to commission a portrait. I will work with you to create and bring to life your vision for your portrait. And, because I work from photographs there's no need to sit for hours on end without moving.  


Once we have settled on a photograph, size, and style, I can begin the actual painting from my studio. The painting process typically takes 3-4 months. When near completion, I will contact you with photographs or an invitation to my studio to settle any final details of the painting. Upon completion I will contact you to arrange delivery or shipping of your finished painting.


Please note that a copyright release is required to paint a portrait from a professional photograph.

I offer heirloom quality oil portraits starting at $500.


The fee is based on the size of the portrait and the number of subjects. Each person or animal is a subject. There are set prices for the first subject and each additional subject in the same painting is 50% off. See size and price chart below for examples. For information about larger sizes and group pricing, please contact me at SpottedArtist@gmail.com or 662-202-6699.

The client is responsible for framing, shipping and all travel costs. A 30% deposit is required at the time of commission. Balance is due upon completion.
