I accept commissions for custom paintings in a variety of subject
matter - whether that be your pets (dogs, cats, horses), or people. I
generally set up an introductory meeting where I can get further
insight as to the goal you wish me to accomplish. We discuss mood,
environment, size, price, and the general process of how I approach a
commissioned art piece. Generally I work from a number of "good" photos
but will often do a color study from the live subject if I feel that
the photos do not provide enough information. Once I receive approval,
I can begin the process. The goal is to create a painting that you will
have and treasure for a lifetime.
Shipping is not an issue as I work with a reliable shipping firm.
The one thing I do not provide is a frame for the painting. I feel this
is a very personal thing for most clients; however, I am willing to
suggest what I feel would be aesthetically pleasing.
