What kind of commissions do you offer?
Oil on canvas (abstract expressionist style) are most common.
I also enjoy creating destination paintings, drawings, watercolors, pen and ink, works on paper, memory books … you get the idea! It’s all about having a conversation to discover what most suits your space, needs and vision.
What is the process?
My initial consultation for the project is free of charge, and we use this time (phone, online video conference, or in-person) to discuss the project at hand and agree on details like size, palette, style, content, etc.
From there, I’ll send a proposal and, once signed and deposit is made, the creating begins! There is a minimum of one check-in (via studio visit or photos sent to you) to make sure you are happy with the results so far. I allow up to 2 revisions. (Major re-working may incur an additional fee.) Upon final approval, there will typically be a wait time until the piece is dry enough to transport / handle. Then, shipping or delivery will take place.
What about payment?
There is no extra charge for doing commissions.
50% deposit up front prior to commencement of work
30% upon first review / check-in (2nd installment)
20% upon completion and approval (prior to release)
If any additional fees are incurred (such as a major re-work), this amount is collected along with the 2nd installment.
I accept check, cash and major credit cards.
How long does it take?
Each piece is unique based on location, style, size, our communications, etc. A normal painting can take anywhere from 2-4 weeks, depending on how the check-in goes and the swiftness of our communications. (Doesn’t include drying time, shipping / delivery, etc.)
Rush options are available for an additional fee.
What if I have to cancel the project?
Things happen from time to time, so I do my best to consider things on a case-by-case basis.
However, if the piece has progressed further than 1/2 way, the deposit is no longer refundable. If less than 1/2 way, a fair determination of investment thus far will be calculated and applied against the deposit. Refunds and credits are not possible after the 2nd installment has been made.
