What if I want a larger size?
Please inquiry directly about a larger sized painting. I can give you a custom quote. Daughtersandsuns@gmail.com
Can you come to my location?
Yes. A fee of $250 is required for sittings outside of my studio location.
In home sittings are limited in availability. I max out at 2 a month.
Can you tell me more about the length of session? What is the average length, and how does a longer session result in a difference in the artwork?
In general adding more time just makes a more thoughtful and detailed image. I divide each sitting into 3 segments. First I do layout and block out shapes, then I add dimension and form and finally finishing lines and details. If you prefer a more gestural piece a shorter sitting (45 minutes) is perfect. If you would like something a little more detailed or have more than 4+ figure 1 hour or more is preferred.
I booked an appointment, now what?
I now ask for a deposit to hold your appointment spot. If you are interested in booking a sitting, after confirming the date and time with me and choosing the length of your sitting, I ask that you send me the full amount listed through Paypal or Venmo to my email address email@example.com. After I receive your deposit payment, your spot is officially held.
I have pets, can I bring them to my sitting?
If you have a small dog who wont mind being held in the hallways then yes! If youve got a big poochie or a rowdy doggie I'd gladly paint him in from a photograph.
I'm worried that my young children won't be able to sit still for the whole session. What do you recommend?
I only need a few minutes of sitting time to capture your child. Once I have the basic details, your child is free to move around as I continue to paint.
I am best able to capture someone’s personality when I can meet and interact with them in person. Plus it helps to know I am a parent of young children and have the patience that comes along with that.
Tips for families with children:
- I often have clementines and lollipops available but feel free to bring extra snacks.
- Bringing a favorite toy or object adds a personalized touch to portraits.
- Kids do not need to be still the entire portrait sitting, but I have found that books, drawing pads, or tablets can be helpful in prolonging their patience!
- At the parents' request, I will have Netflix available.
