Inquire About Commissions
Please contact me to communicate your ideas including subject matter, colors, size, etc. You’re welcome to reference past paintings:
After we’ve discussed the vision for the project, a deposit will be made to secure the commission. I usually schedule a few months to a year ahead but this can be discussed privately to determine a more exact timeline. Payments can be broken down into payments of 2, 4, 6 months... as long as the painting is 50% paid for before starting and 100% paid for before shipment. Please reach out to me for more information regarding payments.
When it is time to begin, I usually create a general palette or sketch out a composition before I paint or provide a palette of colors for abstracts. Once I start painting, I will update you. Before the paint dries we can make small adjustments as long as we do it before the paint starts to dry. Usually the thin layers of paint start to dry within a day or so. My paintings vary in texture and thickness so the thicker areas take longer.
Thus, shipping occurs after the painting is dry enough to safely transport. I usually wait at least a month or two to ship. Once it’s ready to ship I will notify you.
Prices for commissions depend on the size of the painting. Sizes range from custom mini's 4x4" to any standard canvas size to massive custom sized canvases. I typically only paint on canvas but please contact me if you have something else in mind and we can discuss your needs. Please inquire about pricing using the form below.
Framing is available... frames are typically a traditional gallery floater frame in either gold leaf, silver leaf, white, black, or natural. Price depends on size. If you are undecided about framing you can think about it and let me know later.
Shipping is calculated at the end of the project and is based on the size of the painting, whether or not it is framed, and delivery address. If framed it will be shipped in a wooden crate. My studio is located in North Wilkesboro NC and can accommodate free local pickup.
Also be sure to let me know if you heard about me from a gallery that carries my work or if it was from a friend or Instagram or wherever so I can make sure to involve the right people if necessary.
Again, thank you so much for your interest. I look forward to hearing from you!
