Yes, I take commissions! And if you are thinking about one as a gift for yourself or a loved one, let me know soon as my schedule is booking up!
All I’ll need to get started are some images that you love, approximate dimensions, and a deposit.
To create your painting, I start with a two or three sketch options to give you an idea of what I have in mind, and make sure we are on the same page. Once I have your approval, the painting begins. At this point, I typically allow for 3-4 weeks for completion of each piece (and slightly longer during the holiday season).
My prices for commissioned paintings on canvas are about 15% more than already finished artwork. This is because of the extra time spent putting together a piece that meets all of your wishes.
Pastels and Charcoals:
For a realistic pastel bust about 12x16 the price is $125 and they are on tan paper.*
The charcoal portraits are black and white charcoal on grey paper and are $95.*
*Other options are available. Contact me for quotes.
I ask for a 50% deposit to begin, with the remaining balance, plus shipping, due once your painting is complete.
You get an email with photos of your custom art.
You love it.
Or if you want me to make adjustments...no problem.
I send and invoice for the remaining 50% and ship your art insured via priority mail. And if you are in the US I will send you a tracking number.
You get it and do a happy dance.
