||$35 - $40
Prep pricing can go up for unusually rough pieces, or if they are broken. I
do not charge prep on resins purchased from me when I paint those.
Painting: (base prices)
||$140 - $175
||$175 - $215
||$210 - $245
||$250 - $300
Painting prices increase based on the time required. So larger pieces, or more
complicated colors are more. If you combine say, roan, or dappled color with
appaloosa, or pinto markings, I will charge more as those base colors cost more
than solids. And I charge for patterned coats, so that will bring another
increase. However, my increases tend to be $10 to $25 at most. I will
adjust base pricing as needed, up, or down, in consideration of larger or
smaller pieces within each scale. Or, for simpler, or more complicated colors.
Unfortunately, I will no longer, for any reason, accept a painting order to be
done as a "Portrait". I will paint horses "similar"
to... but no "my horse" again. To MATCH PHOTOS �I want it JUST
like this�, so I have to constantly refer to pictures, a surcharge will be
charged as follows. This does NOT apply for general �drift� reference photos
which give me a direction to head. Color is so subjective.
Payments: I accept money orders and Paypal through
Mike Jolly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
(Sadly, no personal checks.) I do not require half in advance, but payment
is due when I notify you your order is ready to paint...not when it has been
completed. When customer is notified that the balance is
due on a work that is ready, they have two weeks to complete the balance or make
special arrangements. If this is not done, the piece will be offered for
resale. In some cases, a portion of any deposit MAY be returned, at my
discretion. I do not paint a piece until fully paid for, due to past
instances of non-payment. I am truly sorry to have to establish these
Credit Card Time Payments: I am instituting a paperwork charge for
additional work involved. Time Payment on cards will be charged $1.00 for
each additional charge beyond the first payment. So, if you make
three 'payments', you will pay $2.00 more than the 'cash' price.
Shipping: I must request that NO shipments be made to my
physical address using ANY FED EX GROUND Delivery services. I will not be
held responsible for products delivered that way. The GROUND service
drivers consistently leave packages at the main gate, 500' from our home, where
they can remain overnight and at HIGH risk for THEFT or DAMAGE. If you
MUST use Federal Express, use ONLY EXPRESS SERVICE!! They WILL deliver,
safely to my door. I can no longer afford the hours on the phone fighting
with Ground terminals over fouled-up deliveries.
VARA: I will allow minor changes to my work - i.e. ear turn,
mane and tail, nostrils. NO major repositioning or re-muscling please.
NO changes to paint work, including markings. If this needs to be done, I would
rather do the work myself.
Disclaimer: While I am as careful as possible with resins, I can
not be held responsible for loss or damage of any resin in my care due to fire
or natural disaster. (Flood, earthquake, wind....)
It is the client's responsibility to keep Chris Jolly informed of any changes
to email, phone, mailing address, or other contact information. She will do her
best to contact the client, but as of Oct. 2014, any horses, funds and other
items left with her, regardless of payment status, with no communication to her
for six months or more, will be considered abandoned and forfeit.
In the event my books are closed, these are a few artists I can suggest for
you to look into. I will be adding to the list shortly.
