If you like my work and are thinking about a custom piece, let's talk! As long as the desired artwork is fits my style and subjects that I have experience painting, I will gladly accept commissioned work.
Customized landscapes are my specialty! Do you like one of my pieces, but would love something similar in a different size or color scheme? Or, do you have a favorite vacation spot? A beautiful yard? A place that carries a special meaning for you and your family? I would love to talk with you about what makes this place special and see as many photos as possible, after which I will provide you with an estimate that will be based on the size and level of complexity of the artwork. Generally, I require a 50% deposit before the start of work on all custom artwork.
I begin by using your photos to make a color sketch where I strive to create a feeling of the space versus a factual documentation of a particular angle or point of view. Throughout the painting process, I take progress photos, through which you will be able to watch your custom piece come together. When the piece is near completion, I will work on the finishing details to be sure that everything is to your liking.
Custom artwork is a fun, creative collaboration between an artist and a customer, where mutual trust and exchange of ideas are very important. The images on this page are examples of some of my favorite commissioned pieces that I have worked on the last couple of years. If this is an adventure that you would be up for, I would love to hear from you!
