I’m so glad that you’re interested in commissioned work. I’m more than happy to help you design your own special painting or capture a special memory into a painting. It’s simply exciting!
Here are a few tips and tricks to understand the process a little better:
First, you need to decide which size fits your vision. If you`re struggling to find the right fit, I will be happy to help you out!
Find what inspires you – photos, Pinterest boards, a specific color palette, or perhaps a painting of mine? However, I don’t necessarily NEED a photo of yours to work from to make a commission happen, but I am happy to receive them all if you have!
For example, I have clients come to me telling me which pieces of mine they like (and why), and then tell me exactly what they’d like me to change to make it their own special piece. I can add and subtract from other paintings I’ve done in the past that you love most and create you a whole new custom piece.
I begin with a sketch on paper/smaller canvas, to give you an idea of what I have in mind, so we are on the same page. Once you approve I begin painting your custom piece. Depending on size and complexity, it can take 3-10 weeks to complete your artwork.
The price depends on the painting size and complexity, so we together agree on the final price with your budget in mind.
I ask for 25% non-refundable deposit which covers the cost of materials for me to begin with. The remaining balance is due once your painting is complete.
We will keep ongoing communication about the artwork process until your original painting is ready for pick-up or delivery.
No matter how hard it is to decide what you may or may not want, we WILL ALWAYS make it work. I can’t wait to work with you!
