Commissioning Art Originals
Your art is a reflection of your dreams, stories, and memories
If you’ve viewed the art for sale on this website and still haven’t found the perfect painting, consider commissioning an original artwork created to compliment your unique tastes.
Creative Energy Exchange
Creating original artwork is a special experience
Unlike collecting an existing artwork, through the process of commissioning an artwork the artist and collector share in a creative energy exchange to create something that both are proud of.
In working with me you are closely involved with the creation of your own original heirloom artwork. We’ll work together to create a representation of what you imagine before I get to work at the easel.
Along the way, I will chronicle the artwork’s development and provide a video of the process and the evolution of your commissioned art.
Once completed, the unveiling of the awaited artwork can be a special experience at your favorite romantic spot, a private venue somewhere recluse, or in the privacy of your own home. There are as many variables as your imagination will allow. Either way, it’s all about intention, spirit, and personal experience, and the possibilities are endless.
Together, we will capture a moment in time for eternity, an experience that oftentimes is mentioned as one of the most unique, rewarding, and singularly memorable experiences of a lifetime.
Should you decide to indulge yourself with a memorable experience and create something more intimate, you’ll be the subject of a truly original personalized experience and timeless original artwork.
As an artist, it is my desire to create beautiful art that you will enjoy for a lifetime.
Things to consider before we start…
• Who or what is the work for? Is it for your home or office? Is it a gift?
• Are there any constraints or special requirements? Think about the dimensions of the work, the space where the work will go, the function of the work, any materials to be used?
• What are you looking for? What kind of artwork do you like, do you prefer a particular style?
• What is your budget? Does this include installation and delivery?
Creating a painting that we can all be proud of takes time. Original art creation can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months, depending on existing commitments and the complexity of your artwork. Each painting will vary slightly in the steps taken from conception through completion, as each person, situation, and circumstance are unique. Once we get a few of the details down, regarding size, and complexity, I can give you a pretty good idea as to when an original artwork will be finished and delivered. If time is essential, let me know and I will take your timeline into consideration.
The price for original artwork will vary depending on the size, medium, and complexity of the piece. Please feel free to contact me with any questions through the form below.
I require a deposit of one-third with the second third due halfway through the painting. The balance is due upon completion. Sales tax and shipping & handling (if applicable) are extra. In the event of cancellation on your part, deposits are non-refundable.
