There's much joy and prosperity to see here! So, take your time, and consider if a Personal Acrylic Portrait is right for you. We hope you enjoy our site and take a moment to drop us a line.
Decided you’re up for creating something beautiful together? Great! Once you reach out, I’ll send over an online questionnaire for you to complete to help us hone in on your vision. Once you’re finished, you’ll receive my ‘Custom Portrait Journey Guide’ (if you haven’t got it already) so you have an easy roadmap to refer to for our adventure. Finally, we’ll catch up over a casual, zero-obligation and completely free virtual coffee date/consult.
We’ll chat about your ideas, concerns, hopes, fears and inspiration for creating a custom piece of art, and I’ll guide you through my entire process so you feel safe, confident and excited about the journey ahead.
If our coffee date convinced you I’m the artist for your adventure, I’ll shoot over a proposal and contract outlining the specifics of our project.
When you give me the green light, I’ll collect a $250 USD non-refundable deposit, uncork some virtual bubbly with you, and officially schedule you into my calendar, and onto my VIP Anticipation List - my own unique term for waiting list.
Before your work commences, I’ll collect 50% of the total investment (minus the deposit).
Once our start date arrives, I’ll grab the brushes, pour myself a coffee (or four) and happily dive into my zen painting zone.
As my VIP Partner-in-Creativity, you’re an important part of this process too.
You’ll receive regular updates with visuals that ensure you feel like you’re right there next to me, watching as your custom portrait transforms from a few pencil lines on a canvas, to a fully developed portrait of the people you love.
(Told ya it was magic.)
PS – To help me capture the details of your custom piece, I might ask you to send over additional shots, like close-ups of your loved one’s eyes. The beauty is in the details, and I want to make sure I translate every brushstroke perfectly.
Now it’s your turn.
Once I have “finished” your painting and am confident the piece is ready for you to review, I’ll send over photos. You’ll receive a close-up of each face, as well as close-up shots of any other pertinent details (and any other photos you’d like to peruse).
Then? We'll schedule a phone or video conference to discuss everything you love and everything you wish was a little different. If you’re a DC local, I’ll brew us some coffee, and invite you to stop by the studio to see your work in person.
I work to make you jumping-for-joy like a kid on Christmas morning happy.
Which means … edit away, beautiful! During our two rounds of edits, I’ll work to ensure you’re totally delighted with your final portrait and then, once you’re grinning with glee, I’ll collect the remaining 50% before shipping your custom piece, free of charge, direct to your door.
Before you know it, your beautiful, completely custom artwork will arrive at your door – ready to be cherished and adored.
Samir Moussa custom portraits are priced per person, rather than by size. So dream big, because these prices reflect canvas sizes from 18x24 all the way up to 30x40.
(A believer in bigger being better? Good news: We can always go bigger if it’s your heart’s desire. Larger canvases are priced per project.)
1. We start with a $250 USD deposit to schedule you on my calendar.
2. Before the magic begins, I'll collect 50% of the total investment (minus the $250 deposit).
3. Once completed, edited, and given the seal of total delight, I will collect the second 50% of the deposit, before shipping the work.
