Commissioning a painting
I am often asked whether I do commissions, and the answer is “yes!”. I love the challenge of a new and unusual subject, whether a portrait, pet or a landscape.
The process can be a little intimidating, so here are a few frequently-asked questions:
■ Can I give you one of my images?
I am happy to work from your image,
■ Can you work on small and large pieces?
I work across a wide range of sizes (9”x 12” to 48”x 72”)
■ How does pricing work?
Commissioned paintings are priced by size ($2.75/sq.in.)
■ Do you require a deposit?
I typically require a 25% non-refundable deposit before starting the painting.
■ How long does it take?
Please allow 4-6 weeks from start to finish
■ Can I see the painting before final payment?
Yes; I will send you an image of the completed painting, and you are welcome to view it at my studio.
■ What if I don’t like it?
If you are not satisfied, no additional payment beyond the deposit is required
■ How about delivery & installation?
I am happy to deliver and install the completed painting.
■ Do I have to get it framed?
The painting will be ready to hang, and does not require additional framing, but you are welcome to have it framed by a third-party, according to taste.
