Working together on a commissioned painting is a fun process! If you are interested in getting a custom piece for your home read over this helpful guide about the process.
I work from photos in my studio. Determine what landscape you would like and send a picture of the wall the painting will be on. I can even pull colors from the room and incorporate them into the painting.
Deciding on the Size
A great way to decide is by taping off the desired size of the painting on your chosen wall with painter's tape. The painting price is determined by the overall square inch of the piece. Once we have the size, I will send you an invoice for 50% of the painting cost upfront. This payment locks in your commission and puts your name on the waiting list. I'm currently booked until mid-July.
I start your commission by gathering all the reference material and painting a small sample, usually an 8x10. I will send you a picture of the sketch to ensure I am on the right track with the colors and the overall concept. If you like the sample, I will begin the final piece. Please note, that on smaller commissions I do not create a sample sketch.
The Final Piece
When your painting is finished, I will send you a picture. If you absolutely love your painting I'll email you the final invoice and arrange for framing and shipping or delivery if you are in San Diego. Please note that it will need to dry for 2-3 weeks before it's ready to ship. The cost includes framing and shipping/delivery. If you would like a different frame other than the classic gold floater frame it may be an additional cost. note, on smaller commissions I do not create a sample sketch.
