Commissions

As a clinical psychologist, I have been hearing people’s stories for over 40 years. As an artist, I am moved to tell people’s stories.  I attempt to be an interpreter of their feelings and put them on the canvas. It is never about the exact likeness, but rather the mood the camera cannot always see. YOUR story that YOU would like told for your family to have forever. PLEASE SIGN UP FOR MY NEWSLETTER

COMMISSION A PAINTING

Painting is a labor of love. The personal connection that is symbolized for eternity in a painting is your unique experience. Each situation is different, the complexity of the painting, the number of people, the background, and the size. Starting price is $650.

Each commission is created with you and your desires in mind. The process starts with you emailing me 3-10 reference photos that you love. Then we connect and we will set up a time to talk about the 3-10 digital photos that you have selected. We go over each story and it’s significance to you and your family. This session is done in person at my home, on the phone or on Skype depending on your preference. I then work up a rough composition that I feel will best convey the mood, affect, and personalities of the subjects. At this time we will discuss your concepts for the painting and if you have a color scheme in mind. I will consult with you first before I start painting.

When we have jointly agreed on the rough composition, a contract is signed and the fees are discussed. If you have a concept in mind but do not have any photos, you are welcome to schedule a photo session anywhere in Southern California. A photo session at your location is possible and fees vary depending on time and distance. Also if you have a photo of a specific location for the setting it may be possible to create that for you in the painting.
