I am so excited about your interest in a commissioned painting! The art you choose to hang in your home is a deeply personal decision, and I am honored to be a part of that process. If need any convincing about how seriously I take commissions, ready my blog post on the process here! Below are a few tips to guide you through the process that will help me create a painting that is the most specifically YOU painting of all time. Then if you will fill out the form below, I can get to painting. I can't wait to work with you!
First off, I work from pictures. If you have a special place or a specific view you would like me to paint, send over that picture and that will be my guide! A photo from you is not necessarily required.
If there is a painting of mine that you like, I can work from my own photo library and recreate that painting as closely as possible. As it is with original art, though, no two paintings are alike! So I will paint according to your color and style specifications as closely as possible.
In order to protect the work of my fellow artists, I cannot recreate another artist's work, but I would love to know which painting of mine that you are most drawn to.
Framing options are available!
As part of the planning and development stages, I will make a small, postcard-sized mock-up of your painting on vellum paper before beginning on the big piece. I sometimes find that small, quick paintings are just as lovely as the final piece, and I want you to keep this mini painting as a token of my gratitude for trusting me with a bigger piece.
For each commissioned painting larger than 18x24, you will receive a mini painting framed beautifully in an acrylic magnetic frame.
I will email you as the painting progresses and send a few photos along the way. My hope is that it will allow you to have a say in what happens next or what changes need to be made. For example: add more of a color, add less of a color, add more contrast, etc. You are part of this process, and I want to make sure you get exactly what you want. To help me do that event better, please fill out the form below!
