Commission


Commissioning a portrait painting is a significant undertaking. A portrait will last for generations, years after the family photos have faded. Regardless of the degree of complexity of the painting you commission, Feijão always strives to create an heirloom quality portrait of the highest standards.

Since a portrait painting is a collaboration between patron and artist, the first step is to establish a dialogue and determine the scope of the painting you desire. Feijão will do his very best to accommodate both your vision and your budget. When you commission Feijão to paint your portrait you are dealing directly with the artist. There are no intermediaries and this ensures your communication is direct and there will be no misinterpretation or misrepresentation. If anything, your expectations will be exceeded. Please contact Feijão directly, using the form on this page, to discuss the portrait you envision.

Portrait fees start at $500. The price is based on the following criteria: the number of people or pets in the painting; how much of each subject is to be depicted; the size of the actual painting itself; the intricacy of clothing, jewelry and props; and the complexity of the background setting.

Travel expenses, framing costs and shipping fees are additional. A one third non-refundable deposit is required when you sign the contract. A second payment of one third is due when you approve the study. When the completed portrait is delivered and it meets with your approval, the balance is due.

The following cost estimates are based on approximately life sized, single figure, oil portraits, painted against simple tonal backgrounds. Thank you for your interest.

Feel free to contact Feijão directly, using the form on this page, to discuss your vision.
