FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
I don’t live near the artist but I want a portrait done.The artist will interview you via Skype. She’ll talk about getting a photo that she can work from.
Why do I need an interview? “I paint souls, not pretty pictures.” Everybody has a vibe. The artist wants to feel yours.
I want a painting of my pet. Does he need to be “interviewed?” Yes. The artist would want to meet the beast.
How long will it take to get my portrait? The artist does not know why some portraits come quickly, others not so much. She will not sell a painting she is not happy with.
Are the portraits framed? No. The canvases can be hung, however. Hanging wire is installed, and the edges of the canvas are painted black.
Will you accept commissions for paintings other than portraits? Yes. Write email@example.com.
How much can I expect to spend? Smaller portraits (20 ins. x 24 ins.) start at $600 and go up from there.
Do you take credit cards? Not yet.
* Portraits need not be representational. They can be “energetic” or abstract. The interview process is the same. The final painting would be an abstract painting inspired by the interview.
