custom painting information
First off, thank you for your interest! I absolutely love creating personal paintings that are meaningful to others. It adds another dimension to my artwork, and I'm honored to share that with you.
- What is the process like?
I will provide a quote based on the type of paint used, the size of the piece, and the subject matter complexity. I would love to have photos of what you are envisioning. If we decide to go ahead, a 50% deposit is charged prior to starting. Next, a draft is sketched for approval prior to starting the actual painting. I will share in-progress photos and allow the opportunity for two edits as needed, if not specified in the initial request (anything additional is $15/edit).
- How long will this take?
Current turnaround time is 4 weeks minimum, depending on the size of the painting (or if it is a series of paintings). All this information will be provided at the initial inquiry. My work is scheduled for ahead, so please plan accordingly. Please let me know ahead of time if this is a rush order. Oils may require an additional 2 weeks to be dry for shipping.
- What do you paint on?
Typically, I typically paint on cotton canvas. But there is the option of hardboard, cradled wood or canvas panel with edge depths varying from 1/8 to 2.5in. Your painting can be customized to how you want it -- I can even do round paintings, just make sure to ask beforehand.
