Do you accept commissions?
Yes, for a very limited number of clients. Mostly I paint friends and family for free and ask them to donate to a charity I recommend.
How do I get a portrait painted?
First consider if my style fits your aesthetic. I cannot force or copy a different style.
Next, I will need a photograph to work with. It would be helpful to hear about the subject’s life, interests, and preferences.
It takes about six to seven weeks to finish a 40 x 50 cm painting. It takes oil four weeks to dry. Varnish takes another week.
How much does it cost?
Please send me a message. I do not undervalue my work, but I would like to give more people a chance to experience having their portraits painted. We can then agree on a payment of 50% of the cost upon acceptance of the commission. The rest is payable upon delivery.
I donate a portion of the income to the Philippine General Hospital’s Let’s Save the Brain Foundation.
Does your price include taxes?
No because my gross sales are not above the threshold set by tax authorities. However, payments received are reported as taxable income. MHS Art is registered in Denmark as a private small business (a “hobby business”) with CVR number 41987502.
