Portrait Commission Guide
I paint my portrait with acrylic paint on Claybord. The museum quality panel is coated with smooth clay ground comparable to the clay gesso grounds used during the Renaissance. I like the absorbent surface and clean edges of the panel better than the canvas.
The image and the color continue on to the four sides of the panels (see the photo below), so the panel is ready to be hung on the wall. If you wish to frame it, I recommend “Floater Frames”.
10% deposit will secure your spot in the waiting list. The process of a commission usually starts with a photo session at client’s home, at my home studio, or outdoor with natural light. If a photo session is not possible, I can work with photographs provided. You don’t have to have one perfect photograph. I can perform wonders using multiple references.
One mother asked me to paint her teenage son as a little boy with old photos as reference. She wanted to remind herself “how cute he used to be!”.
The father and daughter painting one the right was commissioned by a renowned bag designer as a father’s day gift for her husband. Turn-around time was short, and only low resolution photos were provided by the client. It was a great challenge, but I made revisions until the client was satisfied with the result.
When a painting is finished, I will email you the image for your review, and minor changes can be made if necessary.

The square painting is a popular choice for the portrait of children. It makes a special gift, too. Multiple portraits is a fun way to display siblings and any type of groups.
