CUSTOM PAINTING INFORMATION
I love creating personal works of art for your home, office, or business. Here is some information below on the exciting process of commissioning a painting, made as simple as possible:
- What is the process like?
Please email me photos of what you would like me to paint (firstname.lastname@example.org) and the approximate size of the painting. I will provide an estimate that depends on the medium (watercolor vs oil), dimensions, and the subject matter complexity. Prior to starting the painting, there is a 50% non-refundable deposit, then a draft is sketched for approval before I begin the final painting. I will share in-progress photos (2-3) and allow up to 2 changes to be made, if they were not specified in the initial request (anything additional is $15/edit).
- How long will this take?
Current turnaround time varies from 4-8 weeks depending on the size of the painting(s). This information will be provided at the initial inquiry. My work is scheduled for ahead, so please plan accordingly. Oils may require an additional 2 weeks to be dry for shipping.
- What do you paint on?
Typically, I paint on canvas. I offer the option of hardboard or cradled wood as well. Edge depths can vary from 1/8 to 2.5in. Your painting can be customized to how you want it -- I can even do round paintings. I would be happy to make recommendations based on your preference for framing and display of the finished painting.
