Looking for an awesome and unique gift for a new baby?
How about an adorably playful Baby Portrait?
Commission a Baby Portait
So far I've met a little black bear always happy near trees, a playful monkey who just loooves bananas, and twinies: a bee and a bug...
::Your baby portrait will be the cherry on top of that cute nursery you took such great care to create. The colorful and playful designs will delight your baby for years to come! Lovingly crafted especially for you! ::
:: What You are commissioning::
A mixed media piece created on canvas and finished with a simple custom wood frame. Signed & dated on the back with a small signature stamp on the front. It arrives safely bubble-wrapped and gift-wrapped. A certificate of authenticity is also included.
You start by answering this short questionnaire to help inspire my setting/background, and to learn a little bit about your baby!
You send me 2-3 pictures that you think capture something about your baby... and I am off and running! (or painting)
**At this point you can request that I send you a quick digital sketch for your approval. There is a $40 charge for this sketch and I send it to you electronically. (Note: this is just a quick idea of the general picture and will not look exactly like the finished painting - please -- you can see some examples in the slideshow to the right).
When I am done I can text/e-mail you a picture of the finished piece if you can't wait until you get it to take a peek!
After I receive your request, questionnaire, and photographs, I will get right to work. If you request it, I can send you a digital sketch within a week.
Once we agree on the direction of the painting, I will complete it in 2 weeks. If you would like to see some shots of the work in progress, I can send you some about a week into the project. I will make alterations upon your request only once and only at this point. I want you to be thrilled with the piece, and I also want to give you my best!
::Sizes and Prices::
16X20 - $350*
* these are prices for the artwork alone, and do not include shipping.
Half of the total payment is due when you place the order, and before I start the painting. The remaining half is due when the painting is complete, and before I send it to you. You can pay by check or use a credit card (I will send you a PayPal invoice in this case).
As you can see in the pictures above, there is a likeness, but all pieces are done in my style and will not be portraits in a traditional sense. **If you want a piece that "looks just like" your baby... I am afraid I may not be the artist for you!
If you are a local Portlander, I will gladly deliver the painting to your home. Or you could schedule a time to come by and pick it up if you wish to see my studio.
If you are out of town and would like me to ship it, I will gladly package it so it makes its way safely to you and ship it in whatever method you request. Shipping and packaging costs are NOT included in the prices listed above. The shipping costs are due at the same time as the final payment
