Private Commissions

Important Update March 2019. 

I am now booked for private custom paintings through 2019.

After 25 years and hundreds of private paintings, I’ve decided to focus exclusively on my own work moving forward.

For the foreseeable future (at least through 2020) I’m no longer accepting new private commission projects. 

There’s just so much on my own painting list that I want to do, and I have to make time for it somehow. I do look forward to growing my inventory of Available original paintings. Perhaps one of those will work for you. 

If you are on a serious mission to have a custom piece done, I may be able to help point you in another artist’s direction.  

Thank you very much for your continued support and understanding! 

Warmest regards,



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. Please plan ahead for the holidays as I’m usually booked for Christmas delivery by August.

Will it look like a photo?

No. If you are reading this you are likely familiar with my work. As an artist my goal is to translate what I see and feel into juicy rich paint, color, shape, energy, and emotion. My work is colorful, impressionistic, expressionistic, and perhaps even semi-abstract. I’m definitely not an “every blade of grass” photo realist. I take lots of liberties & artistic license aiming for a great painting. 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. See example HERE.

How much does it cost?

The following are my private commission size options and prices for 2019. These are standard sizes. Custom sizes available at comparable pricing.
