I am able to accept a limited number of private commissions each year. It’s a lot of fun collaborating with a client to create a personal, original work of art. I look forward to working with you!
The following should answer some initial questions you may have.
How does the process work?
A great place to start is a phone conversation. We will discuss details about what you are looking for and what I can deliver. You can decide at that point if you would like to move forward. We will work together to decide on the best season, angle, view, details to include, etc. This is where the creative collaboration occurs. If the subject is local we can visit it together. If not, I may be able to work from your photos. My home/studio phone is 802-235-2328.
How long does it take?
I can be very flexible depending on my current schedule. We will determine an agreeable delivery date together. 2 months is appreciated.
Will it look like a photo?
No. As an artist my goal is to translate what I see and feel into juicy rich paint, color, and shape. My work is colorful, impressionistic, expressionistic, and perhaps even semi-abstract. I am not a photo realist. I take lots of liberties & artistic license aiming for a great painting. If you are reading this you are likely familiar with my work. Ed Whitney said it best: “You get facts from nature, but you get art from artists!”
Can I get prints and cards too?
Yes. Once your original painting is done you may order Prints and Greeting Cards via my standard size/price options.
How much does it cost?
The following are my commission options for 2013.
Prices include a professional frame, ready to hang. Sizes listed below are the outside dimensions of the finished frame. Deduct $100 without frame.
