Things to think about when commissioning a painting
What medium and size are you interested in?
I’m a mixed media painter specializing in encaustic wax landscape artwork who paints in a wide variety of sizes. However, I’m also well experienced in traditional oil and acrylic painting of still life, portraiture, architecture, and animals.
What is your time frame?
I ask my clients to allow four to six weeks from the time the deposit is paid. Let me know upfront if the painting is for a special occasion and I’ll due my best to meet your deadline. Paintings may take longer depending on the amount of changes made during the review process.
Do you have reference photos?
I work from reference photos for commissioned paintings. If you only have a vision without photos, try to be as detailed as possible of what you’re looking for and perhaps share examples of similar work. If you simply wish to have a piece created similar to one of my existing paintings, be aware that it’s impossible to replicate a previous work completely. Each painting is unique. Take a look through my portfolio or sold artwork pages to find an example of what you are looking for in terms of design.
