I enjoy painting scenes of families engaged in day-to-day activities. And I am looking for some good subjects.
Time permitting, I am ALSO happy to create family portraits in which my fee is paid to a mutually agreed upon charity. I make exceptions for lower income families and charge $75 for materials. I have completed several commissions of this type with prices ranging from $500 to $1500.
I begin my artistic process by taking a series of photos showing all or just a few members of the family engaged in an outdoor activity, an activity that could include “just hanging out.” I then proceed to a study showing the direction I plan to follow. After family input, I proceed to a larger work, ranging from 16’X20” to 30”x 40”. The commission takes 30-60 days.
If a family is not happy with my painting, I will keep the work, and there is no further obligation. Please contact me if you have any questions.
