FAQs - Commissions

FAQS:

Do I work with designers?
ABSOLUTELY! I have worked with several and enjoy the collaboration!

Will I work with other people’s photos?
Yes, to a certain degree! I will work with a client’s photo as a general inspiration, but won’t “copy” a photo exactly and will need to have artistic license with the image to make it mine.

Will I paint people, pets or houses in the scene?
I’m sorry, but I don’t paint people, pets or houses, at least not to sell! I do occasionally paint boats!

How are commissions priced?
Commissions are more work for the artist, so there is an additional commission fee of 10% added to my prices (which are all by size). I usually split payments into thirds (1/3 at contract approval, 1/3 midway, 1/3 at delivery), but I am also flexible and happy to work out a payment plan that suits your needs!

What is excluded in the price of the commission?
Shipping and sales tax, if applicable.

How quickly can I get a commission?
It depends, but in general, the more time available is better. I do best when I don’t have a tight time frame. It adds to the stress on the artist and the creative process needs time for edits and adjustments, in addition to the time it takes to order and prep the panels for painting (this can take up to two weeks depending on the size). If you are in a rush, the best option is to purchase a painting already painted!
