FEES FOR PORTRAITS are dependent on the selected medium (oil, acrylic, pastel., pencil, or charcoal), size of the
portrait,
number of subjects, and complexity of background and costume.  
Fees listed above are BASE FEES for one subject, unframed with a neutral background unless otherwise described.  
For group portraits add 50% to base fee for each additional subject.  For detailed backgrounds or costumes add 30%
to base fee.   For fees for larger portraits -- three quarter figure and full length please contact the studio.  Thank you.
The FEE for a portrait will be determined by the date of the first sitting, rather than at the time it is scheduled.  A 30%
deposit is collected when a portrait is scheduled.  Once the deposit is collected, no other money is usually due until a
portrait is completed to both client's and artist's satisfaction.  Exception to this payment schedule may occur for larger
size portraits and/or for portraits with more than one subject, or for portraits with a complex backgrounds.  Payment
plans are available without interest.  
When a client requests Mr. McVaugh to travel outside a prescribed distance, to paint a portrait in a location other
than the artist's studio, all reasonable traveling expenses incurred by the artist, to and from that location, will be paid for
by the client, including photographic assistance when deemed necessary by the artist.  The client will be provided with
travel expense receipts for items such as fuel, travel tickets, lodging and or workplace rental, and/or photographic
assistance.  Only travel expenses verified by receipt will be reimbursed by the client.  
Miscellaneous services available at additional costs include:  appropriate framing assistance, nameplates, picture
lights, shipping, delivery, presentation ceremonies and assistance in hanging a portrait.   

GUARANTEE:  "Your complete satisfaction is guaranteed or there is no fee.  I have maintained this same guarantee
for more than 35 years of drawing and painting portraits by commission."
