My first paid portrait commission was when I was 14 years old, a portrait of my best guy friends’ grandfather. Their mother asked me to paint him from a single photo of him she treasured and I was successful enough that the portrait was framed and hung.
Since then I’ve been fortunate to be commissioned to draw or paint many portraits, world leaders, scoundrels, authors, friends and family. They are a special challenge and one that I enjoy.
Portraits are priced at $2000 on up, depending on size and media.
