Color Study



A contract to commission the portrait is signed by the artist and purchaser at this meeting. The contract covers details of design, payments, ownership, privacy, termination, copyright, delivery, and repairs. A non-refundable 40% down payment is required at the approval of the preliminary design. The balance is due on completion plus any additional charges, such as special packing or crate and truck delivery. Please allow 3-6 months from planning to completion depending on complexity of the work. Satisfaction Guaranteed.

Portrait design is based on color study sittings and photographic studies made by Patsy at her studio or another location.  Photographs provided by customer may also be used.  These will help capture the best expression, lighting and pose of the subject. Posthumous portrait designs are based on candid family photos and customer thoughts.

The frame is not included in the portrait fee, however Patsy will assist you in selecting the one that is appropriate from a large selection of elegant, exquisite gold frames.  She would then proceed to custom frame your masterpiece.

Free engraved nameplate is included with frame purchase.
