Ordering a Sporting Portrait...Sizes...cost structure

At this time...and foreseeable prices for sporting portraits are based on $3 per square inch. I take 30% of that total as a downpayment, non-refundable...(your commitment), and upon completion of the work will contact you. You will be responsible for shipping and insurance costs...and I will build a protective crate. Shipping by UPS or Fed Ex...approximately five days after final payment clears.

I have a commission contract...will fill it out and send you either by email or snail mail...which you then sign and return.

Best photos are high resolution digital images which can be emailed. I will work from photos that are sharply focused...good photos..which I will scan and work from on my computer.

Average sizes and prices worked out, to give you an idea-

11"x 14" = total of 154 inches @ $3 per sq in = $462
16"x 20" = total of 320 inches @ $3 per sq in = $960
20"x 30" = total of 600 inches @ $3 per sq in = $1800

Other popular sizes are 12"x 16", 18"x 24", 24"x 36"

Bit more work...and now ready for the Expo...

This is about as far as I want to start and take this one.  Far enough to show my intent to take this piece....but yet enough work to keep me busy for the three day Expo event.

I know I'll get stopped continuously talking and meeting sportsmen and women...which is all fun, but will be trying to paint at the show.  Click on image to bring up larger view..

see ya at the Expo....March 30th thru April 1st...Alliance building, Madison Wisconsin..
