Fill out form on Microsoft Word, save it, then email to Karen

 



 




Payments

Karen requires a 50% down payment of your chosen price of the commission before she can begin on your commission. Once she has completed the piece, she requires the second payment before she ships it out. She will email you Paypal invoices specific to your commission at those stages in the process.

 




Size and Materials

Typical drawing paper sizes are 11"x14" and 18"x24"; you're welcome to request other conventional sizes. Karen works only with high quality, archival paper brands such as Canson, Arches, and Strathmore. If she is working with charcoal and/or pastel, she will spray the piece with a special fixative that will keep the medium on the page. All acrylic paintings are done on 1.5" high-quality thick gallery canvas.


 


Pricing and Mediums


Price is $50 per hour; more time spent on a piece results in more fine detail. Outside of shipping or requested meeting time to discuss/plan out commission ideas, there are no extra fees for traditional commissions. Karen most often uses charcoal and/or pastel for her commissions, but she also welcomes acrylic paintings. Although acrylic paintings will require more time to render than charcoal/pastel portraits, and therefore be more expensive.

 

Karen typically works quickly and efficiently, always making sure you will be happily receiving quality work. Average time spent to complete a charcoal/pastel portrait (and many of the portraits seen above) is only 3 hours! Time required for acrylic paintings vary depending on requested canvas size and content.

When given a set price, Karen is willing to work with your budget and will spend time on the piece accordingly. It is completely up to you! Regardless, she is most joyous to give you and/or your loved one(s) something worthwhile!
