How to commission a painting
I've done portaits, weddings, logos, memorable places and events, and even a few pets. I'm open to discussing any idea. Very often it is a welcome challenge to approach the canvas in a way I may never have otherwise.
Each project is different, but in every case I work with the client to understand the idea through photos, sketches, and verbal description. Once we are in agreement on a direction I ask for a 50% payment. Pricing is roughly the same as the gallery pricing on original work. Then I get to work. I give myself 3 months to finish the piece, but it is often completed in much less time. Upon completion and once final payment is received, I'll ship the painting to you. I offer a simple frame of my own, but I'm also willing to work with you on more elaborate framing and hanging schemes.
If this sounds like something you'd like to talk about further, please contact me at (661) 210-8811 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to hearing from you!
