DaVinci Sketches start at $30 (4″ x 6″). This cost increases with size, additional pets, backgrounds, props (like a favorite toy) and full body poses.

Each portrait is an individual and custom work of art.

Once I discuss ideas and details with you, I will be able to give you a firm price. Shipping cost and sales tax, when applicable is additional.

Verification: As I am working on your portrait, I will e-mail you pictures of the different progression stages, so you may tweak as I go along. Once the portrait is finished to your utter elation, I will coat with three layers of varnish (acrylics) or a protective UV spray (art pencil). Only if you are completely satisfied with the image do I ask for payment prior to shipping.

Shipping: I ship via UPS or USPS within the continental United States and beyond. Each portrait is professionally packaged securely for delivery to your door. Due to the nature of shipping, portraits do not include matting or framing unless specifically ordered.

Turnaround: Normal turnaround is 3-4 weeks, possibly longer before the holidays or depending on my workload. Every reasonable attempt will be made to accommodate special deadlines for birthdays, etc.

“A HUGE thank you to Mara for making our painting of Piper Finch so special and amazing. Special because it’s of our little Piper, of course, but also because she hid a bridge in the eyes as a nod to my passion of painting Cincinnati’s Suspension Bridge! I’d say it’s an awesome compliment for one artist to commission a painting from another, but it’s very well deserved. So, thank you Mara, we absolutely love the piece!” —Jeff J., Artist
