Commission a Person or Pet Portrait

I offer four sizes of custom portraits. All portraits are done on archival artist quality watercolor paper. I only use artist quality paints and supplies. Paintings do not come framed. However, archival white mats​ and a backing can be ordered. Listed below is pricing for different sizes with or without mats. I will need a high quality photo of what you want painted emailed to me at Not all photos will work. I will review your photo and let you know if it will.  If not, I will explain why it doesn’t qualify. Please inquire with any questions. I will answer and ask all questions needed before painting begins.   I want your expectations to be met and will stay in communication with you throughout the process. Once the painting is done, I will email you a photo. If you are satisfied, I will then have you pay for your painting through PayPal, and I will ship to you. Most portraits will take up to 3-4 weeks plus shipping time. It will depend on your photo and time of year. Holidays may take longer as well as how many commissions I am currently working on. But rest assured, you will find it is worth the wait to have an original work of art in a watercolor painting for yourself or as a gift. I promise to have you happy with your one of a kind work of art. Thank you for your interest.                                                                                                         

To Mat or Not To Mat

What’s the Difference?

To Mat

I can provide a quality archival white mat and a backing with your painting at an additional cost.  A mat draws attention to your painting as well as presentation.  If you are giving a portrait as a gift and not wanting to purchase a frame then a mat  is recommended. Adding a mat adds size dimension overall.  An example would be a 8x10 painting with a mat would need a frame 11x14. Liste​d are painting sizes and sizes overall with a mat.  All sizes are in inches.

Not To Mat

You may choose to order your painting without a mat.  You might want to have it professionally matted and framed or do it yourself. You can then have your painting framed with a colored mat, if you’d like.  Maybe you don’t care for the look of a mat.  Just frame the painting as is.  Your framed work would then​ be the same size as your painting. An example would be a 8x10 painting without a mat would need a 8x10 frame. 

When There is More Then One Person or Pet

All prices listed are for one person or pet per painting. If you have more then one pet or person in a painting or a combination of both please add $35 for each addition.
