How to Order

 Ordering your pastel is an easy telephone call away. After we discuss the details of your painting, a deposit of 50% is required along with receipt of the photos I will be working from.  You can mail or email the photos. A check or money order can be mailed to my address.   I can also send a paypal invoice to your email which will allow you to use a credit card of your choice or through your paypal account.   
Within the first week after receiving the deposit and photos I will send you, via e-mail, fax or mail, the first stage of your painting. It will be a color copy of the initial pose and color sketch for your approval. This is to make sure that you like the colors and placement/composition of your painting.

Please sign and return this copy along with the balance due. Upon receipt, I will complete the portrait and mail it out to you. If you are not completely satisfied, simply return the painting, in the original packing, and I will refund the full amount less shipping costs.

It usually takes 4-6 weeks from receipt of deposit and photos for you to receive the completed portrait.

Gift certificates are also available. For details contact Sherry.


Care and Handling

Your pastel painting needs to be handled with care. The pastel is very soft and can be easily smudged.

Your painting will arrive mounted to a firm board with a waxy paper wrapping designed specifically to protect the delicate pastel. It is further protected between two additional stiff boards.

In order to protect your painting, have it framed behind glass as soon as possible. A local frame shop can provide professional service or a store bought glazed frame will suffice.
