So, you're interested in having a commission piece done? Fantastic! Here is some basic information and questions to ask yourself about having a commission done. Please contact me to discuss further details at firstname.lastname@example.org.
1. BEFORE we embark on this journey together, please look at all of my work on my website to make sure my style is what you're looking for. I am a portrait/figurative painter with an abstract edge. I paint on wood panel and canvas. 2. I will need a very clear, high resolution photo of the person you wish to have me paint. 3. Tell me a little bit about this person. 4. All commission pieces are 16x20" or smaller. Let's discuss if you're looking for something larger. Prices are around $200 for 8x10", $280 for 11x14", and $400 for 16x20". 5. My color palette tends to be more in the blue-green spectrum for my abstract backgrounds and overlay. Please let me know if you have a color preference that is different from what you see in my work. 6. Have you commissioned artwork before? 7. What size are you looking for? 8. What is the date you need it completed by? Please check with me to see what my current availability is. Turnaround time is within 4 weeks. 9. Will you be the only one approving the work in the end? 10. Payment is half down as a non-refundable deposit and the last half is due upon completion. If the piece is to be shipped, the buyer pays the shipping cost. Payment is made through PayPal. 11. Do you have any questions for me? I like to keep the lines of communication open so we're both on the same page at all times.
Thanks again for your interest! Let's talk!
