Portrait costs vary depending on several variables, primarily the size of the canvas and the number of people or animals in the portrait (more faces equals more time).
The typical portrait is 16" x 20" or 20" x 24", painted on triple-primed canvas with a gallery wrap that allows framing or hanging without a frame. All portraits are painted in oil, with a protective finish of varnish.
Prices typically start at $300. I occasionally do 8"x10" portraits on canvas board for $150 each. A non-refundable deposit of 50% is required at the time of commission.
Each portrait takes approximately 10 to 14 days to complete. Delivery times are dependent on the current backlog. For Christmas delivery, please be sure to order well in advance.
For a price quote and an estimated delivery time, please call Karen Ekstrom (I'm the artist!) at 406-449-8819, or email me at Doggydave@uswest.net.
