If you have an idea for a painting, whether specific or general, and you would like me to paint it for you, please contact me - I'd be more than happy to talk with you about your ideas and options for making it a reality.
In general, I use pictures and photographs as my guide while painting, but it doesn't have to be exactly as you want it on the canvas. I adjust layout, color, lighting, etc as necessary to make it interesting and meaningful to you. A photo (or several photos) similar to what you want is a helpful place for me to start. You can request a painting similar to one I have done before, or you can suggest something completely new. If I don't think I am able to paint what you want, I'll let you know. But I'm pretty open to new challenges, so don't hesitate to ask.
Pricing of your commissioned painting will be determined by the size of the canvas at a rate of $1.00 per square inch. I work in sizes from 8 inches to 24 inches on a side. In choosing a size, you will want to consider the level of detail you want in the painting, if you will be framing it or not, and where you plan to hang it in your home. Half of the final cost of the painting will be due when I begin working on the canvas and the remaining balance will be due upon delivery, and payment can be made by cash, check, or credit.
