Live Event Artist Pricing & FAQs

 

How expensive are your paintings?

A 24”x30” painting costs approximately $800 if done from a photograph after the event and $2000 if done live at the event. It is more expensive to have me attend the event, but your guests will thoroughly enjoy seeing the painting come together before their eyes.

What is the procedure for a live event painting?

I like to do a consultation before the event so we can discuss schedule, special requests, venue setup, etc. I arrive at your venue and begin painting approximately 3 to 4 hours before the guests arrive. I paint the background of the space so I can focus on your guests and you when the event begins.

Is the painting finished the day of the event?

No. It takes approximately 2 weeks of post-event work to finish the painting.

How much space do you need?

I need a space approximately 5’ x 5’ with access to a power outlet.

In what medium do you work?

I use acrylics paints on stretched canvas. If oil is preferred, I can use oil in the post event work for an additional fee.

Acrylic vs. Oil: Many of the solvents used in oil painting are not only toxic, but also have a strong unpleasant odor. Acrylics are odorless and much more event friendly. However if the look of oils is strongly preferred I can do the painting in acrylic at the event and then do the finishing work in oil. The finished painting will have the look of oil without offending your guests.

What size is the painting?

Normally 24” x 36”, but other sizes are available.

Can I influence what you paint at my event?

Yes. You can certainly request a particular scene be showcased, such as the first dance, cake cutting, exchanging of vows, etc. If there are important people that you would like included in the painting, just be sure I am aware of them during the event.
What kind of training do you have?
I graduated with honors with a Bachelors Degree in Studio Arts from the University of Texas in Austin.
Can I get aditional prints of my painting?
I can take care of getting professional reproductions printed of the painting. I can also make greeting cards with the painting placed on them. They make fantastic thank you cards!
Do you travel?
Yes. Travel expenses, accommodations and local transportation are additional on top of the base price.
