Commissioned Paintings

I particularly enjoy commissions from persons with cherished old photographs they would like transformed into paintings. Every person has some of these. It may be a favorite photograph of a grandparent or parent whose memory that they cherish. The photos are often faded, poorly cropped or lighted, but that only adds to their charm.

I have also done commissioned paintings of living people, e.g., "The Kern Children". For those, I meet the subjects, take numerous photographs, and work out a composite composition. I prefer not to paint formal portraits of people staring from the canvas.

Most recently I have painted several dog portraits and thoroughly enjoyed doing so. (I am a dog lover - have two of my own.) Included below are two of those portraits.

Commissions similar to those on this page range from $375 (small commissioned landscape) to $3500 (larger, multiple persons). The complexity of a painting increases the cost. Commissions from life are more complex than those from photos or vintage photos. For an estimated price on your proposed work, contact me directly.
