Ordering Your Custom Shoe Portrait
I prefer to have the actual shoes in order to compose the painting and achieve a higher level of detail and color matching. Any shoes mailed to me will be carefully handled and returned with the finished painting. If you send a picture instead, the finished painting will look like your photo – so pay careful attention to details when you are composing the shot and realize that I may ask you to retake the picture if it is out of focus, underexposed (too dark), or overexposed (too bright and washed out).
Step 1: E-mail me with “Custom Shoe Portrait” as the subjectProvide general details of the shoe portrait you want painted and let me know of any specialized requests (background color preference, multiple pairs on a single canvas, etc.) If you will be mailing me the shoes, I will send you my shipping address in my reply e-mail. If you are e-mailing a picture, attach it to this e-mail in jpeg format.
Step 2: Send me a non-refundable deposit (50%) with your shoes. I accept payment by PayPal, money orders, and personal checks – let me know which you prefer. When I receive your shoes and payment I will notify you by e-mail and begin painting your custom shoe portrait. Upon completion (about 2-4 weeks), I will e-mail you a picture of the finished portrait and you will have 10 days to pay the remaining 50%. When your final payment has cleared, I will ship your painting (and shoes) and contact you with package tracking information. When it arrives, please contact me with your reaction to the painting.
