HOW TO COMMISSION ARTWORK


1. Choose a portrait or general commission option (listed below).
2. Choose the photo that you want to turn into a drawing or painting. High resolution.
3. Email your photo/idea, commission choice, and any special requests to alexandra@alexandrahood.com so that we can begin discussing your commission. 
4. Allow an average of 4-6 weeks for your artwork to be created. (Do you need your piece on short notice? Let's check my schedule via email!)
5. When your commission is complete, you will receive a photo via email. Your approval and complete happiness are required prior to shipment.
6. Pay below, via PayPal, or by check. Cash accepted for local pick ups.
7. Once your payment is received, I will send a shipment notification with a tracking number via email within 1-2 business days. Priority Mail Shipping takes 2-3 days. Local pickup option available in Lewiston, Maine.
8. Enjoy! Sales are final upon delivery. 

Do you want more than two faces or animals in your double portrait? I charge $50 per additional face. For family portraits I suggest a series of small 6"x9" singles, which create a beautiful, customizable, and adjustable family wall arrangement. 

Unsure how to best frame your drawing? I would be happy to give you my advice via email. 
Do you want me to frame your drawing? For an additional framing/shipment charge, I'll send your piece to you ready to go in either standard ($) or professional ($$) framing.
