How to commission a portrait

If your gift is for the holidays, please start your project before the end of October!


Commissioning art has never been easier:

1. Reach out to Sugarlift with an idea or a fully fledged vision - a dedicated advisor will help with everything from brainstorming to delivery.

A few of our favorite ideas:

  • Painting of a couple's recent wedding ceremony
  • Portrait of a family member (pets included!)
  • Watercolor of your home, favorite landscape or golf green


2. Fall in love with an artist's style and discuss your vision with them.

3. Your Sugarlift advisor will oversee the whole process so that you know exactly what to expect.

4. Sugarlift will handle all logistics including framing and delivery to your door!

Note that prices vary depending on the artist. Commissioned paintings typically fall into the following price ranges:

Up to 5” x 7” : $750 to $1,000
Up to 11” x 14” : $1,000 to $2,000
Up to 18” x 24” : $1,500 to $2,500
Up to 24” x 36” : $2,500 to $3,500
