I recommend using a measuring tape to decide on size. The general rule for artwork above furniture like a couch or bed is the artwork should be approximately 2/3 the length of the furniture. If you have any questions or would like my input to help determine the size of painting that best suits your space, please don't hesitate to reach out and send me pictures and measurements.
What can I expect with a commissioned painting?
Every artwork is designed according to details and references you provide. For large/complex pieces or if you request it, you will receive progress pictures as I work on the painting to ensure we are on the same page. You will also always receive photos of the final painting, which must be approved by you prior to delivering the painting to you. At that point, we can make any minor adjustments you may want before your new painting is professionally packaged and shipped with the utmost care.
What kind of art do you make?
My work has a slight abstract modern impressionistic style that is textured, expressive and often bursting with color although I do work with neutral colors as well. Please familiarize yourself with my work – I do not paint portraits, pets or hyper realistic pieces that are a copy of a photo.
The subjects I am interested in painting include various types of landscapes (including mountains, seascapes, forests, deserts, cliffs etc), all types of flowers, abstract work, landmarks and food. For inspiration from my previous works, browse through my website, Instagram and Pinterest - these will give you a good idea of my style and the types of subjects I typically paint.
What media does you work in?
I work with high quality acrylics to create texture and I often add mixed media such as gold leaf, silver leaf, sparkles etc. for an extra touch of magic. The surfaces I paint on are ready to hang stretched canvas or birchwood and they do not require a frame although we can add a frame if you would like. All paintings are sealed with a varnish to protect the surface of the painting long term. A Certificate of Authenticity will be included with your purchase and the painting will be signed.
How long do commissioned paintings take?
Depending on the waitlist, orders take about 1-3 months. Please be sure to contact me with adequate time in advance of the deadline you would like and let me know if there is a certain date it is required by.
What is the payment process?
I require a 50% deposit to begin the work and take the remaining 50% upon completing the project and receiving your full approval. Personalized payment plans are available by request.
How does pricing work?
Pricing is based on the size of the painting and the complexity/detail you are looking for (for example a detailed landscape painting is more complex than an abstract floral painting).
All quotes given for custom work are valid for only 30 days - if 30 days have passed without the deposit being received, a revised quote will be provided.
Are payment plans available?
Yes, flexible and customizable interest-free payment plans are available. Just let me know what you have in mind and what is feasible for you and I will try my best to make it work!
