I would love to do art that would be a lasting legacy for you and your loved ones.  Here is how that happens:

1. Decide WHAT you want: an awesome painting for the living room, painting or drawing for greeting cards, or an illustration/painting for a publication. (Whatever you choose, know that I will use the finest "paper" for watercolor [it is actually 100% cotton] that is acid free and coated with a seal that will ensure many years of value. For acrylic, I use the best material I can find plus the best acrylic paint on the market).

2. Send me an email (genuinefakesfineart@aol.com or dennis@drfakes.com) with a concept or photo attachments of the person/pet/place you wish for me to paint.

3. I charge by the square inch of the final product (width x length =

square inch). For portraits it is $1.50 sq/in; pets $1.00 sq/in; landscapes $.75 sq/in.  (I

am comfortable with small 3" x 3" or very large, mural-size works). I will charge more

per square inch for very small works simply.  Ask me.

 

4. I will then send you a contract requiring 50% down (non-refundable).  Upon receipt

of your down payment, I will do a drawing that is yours to keep. (See sample on this

page).

4. Depending on the time of year and my schedule, allow me three weeks for a people

portrait and two weeks for a pet or place portrait.  I will send you a "proof copy"

attachment.  This is where you suggest changes.

5. Upon receipt of the total payment, I will complete and mail you the final product. 

I do watercolor, acrylic or oil paintings.  I prefer watercolor or acrylic.
