I've been working on a series of miniature eye portraits, because I love painting eyes, mostly--but also because they look really cool in a group. And I love the old idea of painting a loved-one's eye in miniature--although those are traditionally smaller and usually set in jewelry.

This is your chance to commission your own miniature eye painting! Those of you that know me know that I very rarely accept commissions, so if you've ever entertained the idea of having a custom portrait made, here's your opportunity.

And now down to brass tacks:

This custom portrait will probably take around 4-6 weeks from start to delivery.

I'll require at least 2 or more detailed, close-up photos of the eye (and the area around it). I can work from black and white photos, but prefer color. A brief description of the person's character and personality is helpful too. I'm sure we'll exchange a few emails before I get started. Painting a portrait is a collaborative process, so your input is valuable!

I'll email a sketch before the actual painting gets underway.

This portrait will be painted on 2"x2" Strathmore illustration board and will be signed on the front and also signed, dated, and titled (if you like) on the back.

I do not offer framing, but can give you pointers on finding affordable, beautiful frames for your painting.

Once the painting is completed and dry (this can take a week or longer, depending on the weather) I'll ship it to you wrapped in a plastic sleeve and sandwiched between sturdy cardboard. I use bubble-lined envelopes to mail my paintings.

The first photo shows examples of eye paintings that I've already done, the second photo is a detailed close-up, and the last three photos show some of these pieces after they had been framed. I had a local frame-shop frame these and they were beautiful and surprisingly inexpensive.

Please convo me with any questions! I'm sure there's something I've neglected to mention in this lengthy listing:)
