NEW FOR 2019

Do you want to commission a piece in 2019 but are unsure what photograph you'd like me to paint?  Or maybe you are uncertain about the size?  $20 reserves you a spot in the month of your choice for 2019!!  So plan now for Mother's Day, a special birthday or anniversary gift!  The best part is that you lock in the portrait pricing advertised at the time of your reservation! (Pricing will likely go up sometime in 2019, so book now!) . Spots for each month are limited! 

How it works.

1.  Select the month from the drop-down that you'd like to reserve. 

3.  You will pay only $20 to reserve your spot no matter the size of your painting! (Be sure to select the Custom Reservation option for shipping so you are not charged shipping on the reservation EVEN IF you later intend to have your painting shipped. Shipping will be calculated in your final payment.)

4.  Be sure to look at the confirmation e-mail (if you don't see it check spam).  There will be a link in the confirmation e-mail that will give you a link to a form that you will need to fill out no later than the first day of the month your reserved your painting.  I will also need the photograph e-mailed to me.  You can do this at any time between now and the month of your reservation.  Late forms, photographs, or downpayments may result in a delayed painting. 

5.  Your painting will be guaranteed to be delivered by the end of the month that you selected (if you complete step #4).  For example, if you are wanting a portrait painted for your Mom's birthday that is April 12th, you will want to reserve MARCH as your month. 

6.  The $20 reservation is non-refundable, but you can transfer it to another month if you are not ready for your painting when contacted.


These prices include 1-5 people.  There is a charge for additional people.  E-mail me at lauragilesart(at)

for a custom quote if your painting will have more than 5 people.

  • Fine art paintings are painted in acrylic on deep 1.5 inch professional canvas. Each fine art painting is unique and heirloom quality.  I can turn simple, candid pictures of your family, children, or other photographs into a treasured keepsake.
  • My work isn’t realistic and isn’t meant to be. I strive to capture the essence of the subject through their body language verses features and facial expressions. 
  • Professional photographs can only be used if you obtain permission from the photographer.
  • If you need a painting for a specific spot in your home, I can work with you to determine the best size.
  • I do more than portraits!  
  • Pricing is for up to five people in a portrait. Contact me for pricing over five.
