How does the commission process work?
After your initial inquiry, we will discuss sizing, style, and pricing of the painting you wish to have commissioned. I will then provide you with a commission contract and begin your painting once you have agreed to the price estimate and terms. At this point, you may specify colors by providing fabric swatches, paint samples, or even a photo of the space. If you are local, I will come and take a look at the space in person (if necessary). If you are not local, all of this can be done over the phone and/or through email. Once the painting is complete, I will deliver the painting (assuming you live in Dallas) or ship it to you (client pays for shipping). Typically, the edges of the painting are sanded, painted white, and the painting is signed. I do not frame paintings myself, but am happy to provide recommendations.
Payment for commission?
A deposit is due before the start of the commission.
The remainder of the final price, plus tax and shipping, is due upon completion of commission.
Commissions usually take 6 to 8 weeks unless otherwise specified. Since I paint in oils, a certain amount of drying time is required, especially when shipping is involved. I also take my current work load and size of the painting into consideration when providing a time estimate.
