The process
I will make an appointment to come to your home or you may come to my studio. I will take many photographs with a neutral background and proper lighting. If you would like a descriptive background (a certain room, mantle, or chair etc.) ), we can set up the scene as it suits you. This photography session will take one-two hours. At this meeting 30% deposit is due. I will then email you a selection of photographs for you to choose your favorite as a basis for the painting.

If you live outside the Cincinnati/ Lexington/ Louisville area, I am happy to travel, but client pays travel expenses. 

Please expect 1-2 months for finished artwork. If there is a waiting list, however, I will give you an approximate completion date. If you have a specific deadline, please let me know in advance and I will do my best to accommodate. When the painting is finished, I will email photos for your comments and requests. Final payment is due upon approval of the painting. Since oil paintings take a few months to dry, if I need to mail the painting, it is best to start early to allow at least a month before delivery.
