My portraits are in a square format from 12" x 12" or 24" x 24". I do head and shoulders portraits on board in pastel over gouache. I use my own photography and prefer to do these in my studio or on location in Colorado, but I can travel if needed. Portraits are priced according to size: $1200 for a 12" x 1 2" portrait and $2400 for a 24" x 24" portrait plus expenses, if I have to travel. My goal in creating a portrait is not only to capture a likeness, but also to reveal something of the character and psyche of the inner person as well. If there are personal and/or universal symbols that are important to the sitter, they may be incorporated into the portrait.
I can also do other kinds of commissions such as a painting with symbolic references that are important to you. Please contact me for information about doing that kind of commission.
