Commissions are works of art I create while collaborating with a client to make a unique, custom painting. You can come to me with a pre-planned vision of what you're looking for, or if you're not sure, we can discuss some ideas and design a painting together!
Commissions can be a fun way to express your style and compliment a space in your home or office with something that's uniquely you! They can also be a way of honoring a beloved animal companion with a "Pet Portrait" and make truly special gifts for friends and loved ones.
When time allows, I love accepting commissions! I have painted everything from 5" x 5" to 44" x 64" so there are little size restrictions. All paintings are done on flat or cradled wood panels, depending on the size. Please feel free to contact me any time to discuss a commission or if you have questions about the process.
"Spyder" 8" x 10"- Commission using my photo of the Client's pet.
"Through Wind and Fire" 44" x 64" - Commission using my own references and design process, envisioned by myself and the client.
COMMISSIONING A PAINTING:
-We will discuss your vision for your commissioned piece via email and go over any ideas you may have. Even if you're not sure exactly what you're looking for, choosing the type of animal you're interested in and the color scheme can go a long way in the creation process.
-We'll then go over the sizing you're looking for and work out a quote and time estimate for the painting process.
-A 50% (non-refundable) deposit is required once a painting has been agreed upon and the creation process begins.
-Once your painting is completed and you have approved the piece from a photo I will send you, the remaining balance will be required before shipment of the painting.
OTHER NOTES AND NEEDS:
- I mainly work from photographs. I have many resources for images to reference and I will do my best to find references that will best suit your vision. If you have your own image you wish for me to use, I'd be happy to use it as long as the image is clear and well lit so I may see details, especially if it's of a pet. I want to represent your pet as best I can and a good photo will help immensely!
-Shipping is included with your commission fee for paintings 36" x 36" or 30" x 40" and under within the US. The shipping cost for larger pieces and pieces shipped internationally will be determined once the painting is package, measured and weighed. We can discuss this estimated shipping fee before your painting is shipped. I will then email you the Tracking Information to best determine when your painting will arrive.
-You may choose from two different styles of paintings, one being my signature disrupted-realism style with looser marks and movement, and the other being a more simplified, tighter/realistic look, however each piece will still have my own artistic flare and feel about them!
"Untitled" 30x40" - Commission using my own references and design process, envisioned by myself and the client.
"Ridley" 8" x 10"- Commission using Client's reference.
"Tsjalling" 18" x 24"- Commission using Client's reference of horse and my own interpreted background.
