The Process

Initial Meeting
The first step in the oil painting process is a discussion with the client regarding composition, clothing, location, size and background.

Meeting with the Client
When the painting is near completion, I will review the painting with the client either in person or I will e-mail a digital image. At this time, input from the client will be gathered and then the painting will be finalized.

Finishing the Painting
A single-figure 25" x 30" painting takes approximately three to four weeks to complete. Multiple figures in a painting will require additional time.


  • All oil portraits are painted on oil primed linen canvas.
  • Please note that all standard sizes are used as a guide.
  • Multiple figures on a single canvas are priced separately.
  • Each portrait painting is personalized to the individual client.
  • Framing and approved travel expenses additional.
