**Sizing ranges are guidelines only for a good minimum; the photo used might be better in a different size than suggested, and larger sizes are always welcome. Traditionally, portraits of faces are about life-size. If too small, the impact is lost.

|* Premium Oil on Panel is on archival wood panel, which has a smooth surface, allowing for finer detail. It is what the Mona Lisa and many Renaissance artworks were painted on. It takes more painted layers to achieve the finished portrait, and the panel costs more than canvas, so the pricing reflects that.|
