One of the most important items needed for a successful painting is set of good photographs. The photos must not be copyrighted, or permission to use them must be obtained. I use these pictures to capture conformation, color, size, expression, personality, and pose in my painting. Photos taken in sunlight are the best for providing detail and coloration. Photos will not be returned until requested.
You may wish to give a general idea of what you are looking for, and then let my imagination and creativity run free to create your painting. After agreeing upon your desired finished outcome, I will go to work. When the painting is nearly complete I will send you a photo for your review. When you agree on the final details, the painting will be completed, and shipped.
Commission prices vary with content and detail. One third of this amount is payable up front and is non-refundable. The other two-thirds is payable with final approval. If, after your receipt of the painting, you are not delighted, I will do whatever I can to make it right for you. If you are not satisfied at this point, return the painting and your “final payment” will be refunded.
