- Joan LeMay
Get in touch to inquire about or commission a piece. Here's how it works:
PRICING AND SIZING FOR PORTRAITS, PET OR HUMAN:
I have different pricing models for different sizes--10 x 10 pieces are $350, 12 x 12 pieces are $400, 14 x 14 pieces are $450; 16 x 16 are $500, and if anyone wants larger than that, we can figure it out. Each piece for that price point is in gouache on heavyweight watercolor paper. If the painting contains more than one person or animal in it (say, a whole family portrait, or a dog and a cat, or two cats, etc.), I charge an extra $50 per extra figure.
LAYOUT AND BACKGROUND:
In terms of layout, it can be whatever you want-- square-shaped, portrait or landscape. For portraiture work, I also usually paint a busy wallpaper background of the subject that includes something special about the subject, or that includes favorite colors, flowers, etcetera...sky is the limit.
PROCESS, INVOICING AND TIMELINE:
After a size is decided on, you'd just send over a handful of your favorite photos. Wait times vary, so inquire for details. Rush jobs are possible for an extra fee. I ask for 50% payment upfront. When the piece is done, I email you an image, and then the balance is due along with an additional $20 for s/h and your shipping address. I will then send you tracking info for the piece once it's en route. I can send along framing recommendations as well if you would like them.
