To commission an oil portrait is the ultimate recognition you can offer to any special person. Whether presenting as a gift or placing the painting as a permanent remembrance in a board room or wall of honor, a fine art oil portrait will preserve and honor a person more than any gesture imaginable.

Rick Bayers has successfully painted several corporate executives, family, and celebrity members both nationally and in the St. Louis region. Rick provides full service custom oil portraits and works with his clients from the beginning stages of the planning, including photo sessions, through all the details of delivering a museum quality painting. With years of experience and traditional painting style, Rick will insure your commissioned painting will capture the true spirit and likeness of your subject for years of viewing enjoyment.

Contact Rick Bayers for price consultation.

A photo session of less than one hour will be held at the client’s convenience. Rick Bayers will then review the photographs with the client and suggest a composition and size. A due date will be set for the portrait.

A 50% deposit is required when the portrait recommendation is approved by the client. The balance is due upon completion and acceptance.

The portrait is guaranteed to represent the likeness in the photographs chosen; therefore, the pictures are of utmost importance. If there are no satisfactory pictures obtained from the photography session, the client may request an additional session at no additional charge. The client may also provide pictures to the artist for the portrait.

Out of State travel expenses from St. Louis will be paid by the client.
