If you are interested in having a commission done, I would be happy to help!
Here are some things that may help you in the process:
Prices for commissions generally start at around $450 for one person, approx. 12"x12". The bigger, smaller, more people, type of wood, and degree of difficulty of the portrait will determin the final price.
The more photographs you send me to choose from, the better the portrait will be. I can help you decide which image will translate best to a portrait. The higher quality the image you send, the higher quality the final portrait will be. Try to find photographs that are clear and crisp, high-resolution if digital, and in good lighting. If you are unsure if your photograph will work, please ask!
Once a photo is chosen, I will send you several mockup images created in Photoshop to give you an idea of what your portrait will look like on actual pieces of wood I would recommend.
After everything is decided (image, size, wood type, etc.), I will send you a contract and ask for your deposit. Once those have been returned to me, I can begin your one-of-a-kind artwork!
Portraits can take several weeks to months to complete, based on how many commissions I am working on already and how difficult the portrait is. Try not to wait until the last minute!
My portraits are very resilient as long as you follow a few tips - keep out of the sun as much as possible to prevent any aging of wood, and make sure to hang in a dry environment (not your bathroom or patio)!
