Thank you for your interest in commissioning Fay to do a portrait painting for you.

Her goal is to work with you to produce a wonderful art piece for you to enjoy, or give as a gift.

Fay uses a photograph as the portrait reference. You can either send a high-resolution digital image on a CD, or a photograph, which should be a minimum of 5x7 in size, or maximum of 11x14. You are welcome to send more than one image to be used for reference of the subject.

Providing more than one photo, gives the artist the opportunity to study the subject from many different perspectives. Any photos or c.d.'s provided by the client will be returned upon portrait completion.

When you commission fay to paint a portrait from your own reference material, you are commissioning an individual piece of artwork, which is quite unlike any photograph you may have.
