PROCEDURES AND FEES
How to begin…...
1) Before beginning Carolyn will take time to
discuss any request, or preferences you might have for your
painting. Your ideas are welcomed. A portrait may include images
relating to your profession, location, possessions, etc..
Carolyn’s experience affords her many ideas to accomplish your
desires with clarity and life like color.
2) After an in depth discussion, Carolyn will devise a written
outline of what you would like to accomplish through your
portrait. This assures complete understanding of requests and
gives you a chance to add to, or redefine any expectations.
3) When both client and artist are sure of all requests, and
client approves final draft, artist will accept a 50% (fifty
4) Now we are ready to arrange a photographic session at our
location or yours. This allows the artist to capture the best
possible image from which to paint the oil portrait.
5) When this image has been digitally mastered, the image will
be shown to the client for final approval. After the client’s
approval the oil portrait will take approximately 3 (three)
months to complete.
6) Many of us would like to have an oil portrait of our loved
ones.If however a loved one has become too ill to be
photographed, or has passed on, it may still be possible to
create oils. If you have a photograph from your family
collection that has a clear image, the artist may be able to
digitally master it for size and clarity. This would be
determined on an individual basis and would have to be submitted
to and approved by artist.
7) While we enjoy seeing our parents and children artfully
portrayed, we also have those special pets that have made our
families complete. We have the home and land where we raised our
families. That scene that comes to mind when one thinks of home.
Carolyn particularly loves painting pets and scenic landscape.
They can complete the collection of our life memories. Family
oil portraits add much more to our homes than the usual décor
art that fill our walls yet have no sentimental value. The
backgrounds, props and special possessions in each painting
should tell a story about you and your family. These rich oils
hanging on our walls allow us to tastefully share that which we
value with visiting friends and loved ones.
Due to many different variables, you will need to call and
discuss your portrait needs.
Variables include: How many people, pets, size of the canvas,
size as in three quarter - full length - head and shoulders, background detail,
foreground detail, clothing, indoors, outdoors, etc...
