Commissioned portraits of your horse or animal are now available in all sizes and price ranges ($550-$15,000). If you are in the Northern California area, I prefer to meet your horse or animal and take photos in order to get a better “feel”, essence, understanding of their personality, so that I may paint them in their own spirit and “expressionistic” way. If you are outside the area or your animal has passed on, I also paint commissions from pictures that you supply.
Once a composition and the size/price of your horse painting is determined, we can then set up a payment plan that works for you. Payments can be set up with ½ down, and the balance upon completion, or they can be set up on a layaway program for as little as $150/month. Some clients pay lump sums along with monthly payments, and that works, too. Shipping costs vary upon size and will be worked into the final payment.
I am sitting on my bed writing this to you and gazing at Juliet and Vinny! It takes my breath away and I can’t believe how much I love it! Thank goodness I have the real Vinny to ride or I might never get out of bed! It is just awesome and I can’t thank you enough for making it possible by allowing me to make payments – I don’t think I could have done it any other way.
To commission an original oil painting of your horse or animal is an amazing process. Whether they are still here or have passed over, their essence and spirit will live on forever. Most of my paintings have been painted from pictures, and can be seen if you browse through my Fine Art Prints section of this website. Please contact me if you have any questions or would like to begin the process of having your beloved horse or animal painted.
Patron Program: Another way to purchase an original horse painting is to sign up for a monthly payment program. Centuries ago, artists had “patrons of the arts” who funded their livelihood in exchange for a completed painting, a work in progress or a future work in progress.
