About commissions

Phillip appreciates your interest in commissioning him to create a magnificent painting, pastel or drawing for you. His goal is to work closely with you to produce a unique, personalized portrait that you and your family will cherish for years to come. Phil puts his heart and soul into your project, incorporating your personal preferences and tastes into his work. He emails you as your portrait is being created so that you can view the work in progress and give him your input. It’s not a finished work until you are completely thrilled with your commission!

What it takes...

Each commission is a one-of-a-kind personalized creation requiring a different amount of work and time to complete. A painting commission, specially if it involves specific people, involves preliminary studies. - Firstly Phillip will do pencil sketches to balance proportions of the work and/or composition. - Then come the color studies the way they should look in the final painting. - During this studies you will be consulted so as to create that special work that you will love the most. The time to produce this studies is included in the price but Phillip will have no further use for them. You can get them at a minimum cost.

Learning is FUN!

Ages 12 to 99 -Anyone can paint- The art I teach is: Traditional (classic school that goes back to the renaissance) Representative (not abstract) and Realistic (We paint what we see) style. There is a degree of impressionism in my art that separates the photo from a work of art. We gather every week (… and that has been going on for over 30 years). We paint together, learn from each other and teach every one that comes along wanting to learn. We grow and nurture our market, organize our own exhibitions and SELL our art.
