A Gift Certificate for an archival quality portrait in oil is a very special way to remember, cherish, or honor family or friends, leaders or colleagues. They'll be creatively involved in the original composition and ultimately receive a personal gift they can treasure forever.

Details of Deposits, Refunds, & Scheduling

A Gift Certificate, printed with the names of the proposed subject and client, may be obtained with the payment of a deposit, in accordance with the terms and conditions of the standard Contract, with the exception to the benefit of the client that the contract shall be terminated and the deposit, refunded in full if the proposed subject declines the offer of a portrait before reference photography has taken place.

Although this deposit to obtain a Gift Certificate may be nominal (as little as $1), it must be significant (at least 10% of the estimated total fee) to reserve a time for the execution of the painting. Scheduling of commissions is typically on a first-come, first-served basis, although the slow-drying nature of my painting medium allows me to work on more than one painting at a time.

I always work with each client to accommodate as best I can any special circumstances: I want nothing more than this creative experience to be pleasant and rewarding for all concerned.
