Commissions – Creating Portraits

I often get requests for Portrait Commissions. In this page I am providing some examples of my portrait work over the years, as well as a current (as of 2014-2015) pricing list. If you have questions, or are interested in having a portrait done, please leave a comment or email me at mattballou (at) gmail (dot) com.
