More on Commissioning A Portrait

Transportation and lodging is additional. The artist is entitled to reimbursement for transportation and accomodations while on location.

The tradition of portraiture has been historically motivated by admiration and respect in the areas of professional leadership, service to the community, an institution, or the nation. In the case of family portraits, love, affection, and chronicling a family legacy are major motivations.

In days of old commissioning a portrait, with some exceptions, was a privilege reserved for nobility and those of extreme wealth and power, crafted only through the collaborative process of sittings from life. Today, in addition, portraits are commissioned to serve a vast collection of professional and home decorative requirements, painted with professionalism and attention to your needs from life sessions and/or photos.
