Commission a Painting

Have your uniqueness immortalized into an original oil painting. I paint commissioned portraits from a photograph. The steps for you are simple.

1. Send me an email -
2. Find a photo or several photos of yourself and send them to me in the email. I like photos that are clear, bright of you looking forward and generally close-up. If you don’t have any photos you like of yourself we can set up a photo shoot. I do the photo shoot in my studio downtown St. Louis, Missouri or if you can’t come to me I can travel to your house. Photo shoot take a couple of hours.
3. I will use the photos, and any desires or input you have and will work out three idea choices for you to pick from.
4. Choose your size and price. FREE SHIPPING
