Commission prices are predetermined based on their size, medium, complexity, and whether or not it is part of a recurring series. Please title all commission-based inquiry emails as such: Commission Request, to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are interested in gifting an original artwork for a holiday or special occasion, please place orders a few weeks or months ahead of time for production and a busy schedule. Reserve a time-slot before somebody else does!
Available Size, Price & Shipping Costs
Note, all dimensions are typical page sizes that will fit standard matte and frames (not provided as part of purchase).
Also note, there are two separate options for oil paintings to be completed. The first is Oil Painting on Paper, which will be a dry-brush oil paint technique on watercolour paper. This is an easier process for me to complete with speed. The second option is for me to complete an Oil Painting on Wood Panel. These panels are 1.5-inches thick and do not need to be framed, as they are their own frame. These nicely hold themselves up on the wall with the aid of two support nails.
Wood painting panels are an alternative to pre-stretched canvas. Made with a Basswood frame and 1/8" wood laminate face panels with Baltic Birch veneer, they offer a sturdy surface for paint application. The fine grain of the wood surface can be painted with or without traditional gesso application. Panel construction is attractively finished so framing is optional.
Methods of Payment
I primarily use online banking as a source of transaction with all of my clients, via PayPal.
IMPORTANT - a 50% non-refundable deposit must be paid one week prior to the start of any new project. Why must you place a deposit? Sometimes, once the artwork has been completed and it is time to deliver it to the buyer, the buyer gets cold feed, are unsatisfied, or they are no longer able to pay for what they ordered. Basically, it is a way for an artist to protect their invested time and interest into the work they are being hired to produce.
The remaining 50% of the costs will be due with the completion of the artwork. The product will not be shipped unless it has been paid for in full.
The artist retains full copyright on all artwork that is produced, including mock-ups and prints. When a portrait is commissioned I reserve the right to display it in my website gallery and on my social media pages. Clients who do not wish their commissioned portrait to be shown online must notify me before work commences.
Cancellations & Rejection of Finished Product
If a client cancels the commission prior to me commencing work on it, then the client will not be expected to pay the remaining balance for my efforts. However, the 50% deposit will still be withheld for loss of work or other opportunities.
If a client is not satisfied with the final product, we can discuss methods of alteration - though it will be up to the client to fully fund shipping both ways to fix any problems. However, I will not return the production fees if the customer is still unsatisfied. A project is never completed until I am satisfied that I have produced something with quality effort.
