Steps to Commissioning your BFF portrait

Commissioning your BFF* Portrait is so simple it’s silly…  🤗

Step - 1: Contact me

Use the ‘enquires page’ or click the button below to flick off a quick email to me :-) No commitment - no obligation.
I will call soon after and you, me & your BFF can get to know each other a little bit.

Step- 3: Concept

Second consultation: After pondering for around a week, I will contact you to discuss my concept for your BFF Portrait including ideas for cropping, inclusions (a favourite toy etc) and exclusions (dog poo in background). This is when we make sure we are on the same page with concept, timeline & pricing before I begin painting.

Step - 5: Sign Off

 Signing off Proof: I will email you a proof of your Artwork and give you the opportunity to suggest any small tweaks you would like. After any tweaks are made - you are either…
Unhappy: If you think your ‘Forever Portrait' of ‘Fluffy’ look more like a pug than a poodle - I will cancel the sale & refund your deposit. (I like the ‘zero risk’ thing.) Or…
Happy: (Yah!) And proceed to the final step…

Step - 2: Email some Photos

Email photo/s of your BFF & answers to the questions on my ‘Info & Insights’ sheet which will help you, help me get to know your Furball a bit more. (It’s all furry good stuff.:-)

Step - 4: Deposit

If you wish to proceed, a deposit of 25% is due to secure your place in my painting schedule. My contract at this time includes “Diana’s Happiness (no risk) Guarantee” to remove any risk on your part.

Step - 6: All Happy?

After confirmation that you are happy with your portrait and final payment is received, your painting will be packaged & couriered - or available for pickup from my Christchurch studio . 😁

Target time from ‘order confirmation to wall': 4 weeks. (Possibly longer in busy times.)
