Simply Portraits 2017

Return to Spring Edition!

The Basics: “Simply Portraits” is a special that gets to the heart of the portrait in a way that makes owning an original oil portrait affordable and accessible. This is a quality original oil painting by a renowned equine and animal artist that will be a valuable and lasting memento of a favorite equine, canine, feline or any friend or family member (even human). Now with a smaller, even more affordable option – and all at up to 50% off normal prices!

The key is simplicity; for starters, each portrait is a basic head shot of one subject (horse, pet, person – anything living being that has a “face”) with a simple background – see below for samples. The cherry on top of this special is a nifty 2-4 month payment plan option (2 month only for 9″ x 12″)! There are three size choices:

  • 9″ x 12″ – $300 (2 monthly payments of $150) or $250 up front.
  • 11″ x 14″ – $400 (2 monthly payments of $200 or 4 of $100) or $350 up front.
  • 16″ x 20″ – $500 (2 monthly payments of $250 or 4 of $125) or $450 up front.

If the painting is finished, it can be delivered or shipped as soon as the full balance is paid, even if it’s ahead of schedule.
Shipping additional – $10 US, $25 International. Good through April 30th, 2017.

Sufficient photos of subject need to be provided, quality photographs are preferred as well as more than one (even if some aren’t the best photos you have). Multiple photos are important to get a better feel for an individual horse’s personality and distinctive look. Must have permission from photographer regardless of professional status to use any photo directly. IMPORTANT: photos taken by others cannot be used directly unless permission from the photographer is obtained – includes both professional and non-professional photographers; otherwise they can only be used indirectly, as reference to color and markings, etc. Email photos to or snail mail (contact for address) – photos will be scanned and then stored in a protective bag to be returned with the finished portrait.

The painting won’t be started until the first payment and photos are received, and will be shipped or delivered once the final payment is received. Shipping is $10 in the US, $25 International.  Note: if the portrait is for a gift or an upcoming special event such as a birthday or mother’s day, and every effort will be made to finish it in plenty of time!
