Deposit required for a commission
A deposit for 50% of the final price of the painting (not including sales tax or shipping if applicable) will be required before I start on a commission. Please note: this deposit is non-refundable.
Final payment for a commission
Payment of the outstanding balance is due within 7 days of completion of the painting, at which time the buyer will receive a digital image of the painting to approve. The commission will be shipped or handed over to the buyer upon receipt of the outstanding balance.
A commission based on an existing painting
Buyers often request a commission based on an existing painting with modifications such as size, number of canvases, and different colors or hues. Please keep in mind that while I can approximate the look and feel of a painting, I am unable to create a copy of a painting because every painting is unique.
Matching colors in a room
Feel free to send me swatches of fabric or photos of furniture, a rug, wall color, or other objects in the room if you would like your painting to include or complement specific colors. You may also want to send a photo or two of the room, particularly the wall where you plan to hang the painting.
Single canvas or multiple canvases
There are many possible combinations if a buyer wants a painting created from multiple canvases. I will work with you to decide what will work best for you.
I often ask clients to measure the space where they plan to place the painting to determine what size painting will work in that space. Putting up painter's tape the size of a potential painting may help if it's difficult to visualize in a space.
Three depths of canvases are available: 7/8 inch, 1.5 inches, and 1 and 3/8 inches. Commissions may be requested with a painting's edges painted a color specified by the buyer. A collector also has the option to have a canvas custom-built.
Time frame for creating and shipping a painting
From the time it takes to create a painting until the painting is shipped can be as little as 2-3 weeks, depending on the amount of detail in the painting.
Payment is accepted via Paypal or Venmo. Please note that there will be an additional 3% charge assessed on payments via Paypal.
