I paint your Life!

Portrait fees start at $5000. The cost estimate is based on approximately a life sized, single face, oil portraits, 12”x 16” painted against simple tonal backgrounds.

The following criteria come into consideration: the number of people or pets in the painting; how much of each subject is to be depicted; the size of the actual painting itself; the intricacy of clothing, jewelry and props; and the complexity of the background setting.

Between the photo that you give me or the photo shoot I do and the image we agree upon to be painted, a number of hours of photo editing or painting on photoshop will be done. I charge the minimum fee for photo editing editing industry.

Travel expenses, framing costs, shipping fees and any state or city sales tax, where applicable, are additional and will be billed at the moment of the final payment. A one third non-refundable deposit is required when you sign the contract. A second payment of one third is due when you approve the project to be painted. When the completed portrait is delivered and it meets with your approval, the balance is due.

The process: We will choose from your photos (if you have the copyright) or I will do a photo shoot (included in the price). The resolution of the photo has to be high resolution.

Only the best material that will ensure the art will last for centuries, are chosen! The normal lead time is two months. The delivery date, then depends on the waiting list.

Oil on linen canvas, 9”x12”

Testimony of Michael : “Good afternoon Jean-Antoine,
My wife and I want to thank you for the beautiful painting you completed on my grandchildren. Since they live out of state we do not get to see them as often as we would like. As my anniversary was coming up, my wife did not want any more jewelry, I thought of having the painting done of the grandchildren, I knew it would mean the world to her.
To my surprise not only was she thrilled, she feels as though they are in the room each time she enters.
You made our anniversary special!
Thank you!  “


Sherlock, oil on linen canvas, 30”X40”

Testimony of Julie:“I commissioned a painting from Jean-Antoine Norbert, because I had been impressed by the realism and artistry of a painting by him I had seen at an auction. The portrait I commissioned was of Sherlock, a favorite dog of a close friend and well known collector of modern art on a milestone birthday. The portrait did not disappoint. It is now proudly hanging in my friend's home among paintings by Francis Bacon and Andy Warhol. "Sherlock" is the first painting you see while entering his house, everyone loves it!”
