Matt Hawk of The Hawks’ Aerie offers custom-made, hand-painted, original, one-of-a-kind portraits for individuals, couples, families, or groups in and around the Eugene area. Portraits are prepaid via Square or mailed-in personal check or mailed-in money order or local cash and will be custom made and delivered and/or mailed to you (extra costs for shipping if mailed) within one week.
There are 4 options available for a portrait:
You have the option for a mini-session with Kesha for a nice quality photographic image from which Matt will paint the portrait from. This mini-session would add $50 to your portrait price and would include 3 digital images to choose from, as well as, a 5 x 7 photographic print of all 3 images to keep.
You have the option to send in a non-professional photograph that has a clear, close-up image of the individual(s) being painted. This option can come in handy for clients who are out of town. When choosing a photograph to email to us, please keep in mind it needs to be a clear, close-up image of the person(s) who will be in the portrait. We will help you via email determining whether or not an image is right for doing the portrait.
Subsection of Option Two: This section includes the ability to email a clear, close-up, non-professional photograph of a family member or friend to purchase as a commissioned gift for someone.
You have the option of using an image that Kesha has taken of you in the past to use for your portrait. You will simply add $25 to your portrait price and will receive one 5 x 7 photographic print of that image with your portrait order.
You have the option to commission a portrait of your favorite author or character to be painted from an image of Matt’s choosing unless you have a favorite image of them you would like to use. We will help you via email determining whether or not an image you choose is right for doing the portrait. This option also includes the direct purchase of a hand-painted portrait of an author/character that is already painted and available for purchase. Any portrait of an author/character in our portfolio is available for duplication. As with all our original artwork offered, each duplication piece will differ just slightly from that shown in our portfolio.
