Congratulations! Commissioning a piece of Art work is one of the most exciting and rewarding experiences you can imagine for yourself or for a loved one. If you are planning this as a gift this will surely be an unforgettable one!
I promise to make this process as enjoyable and simple as possible, so that from beginning to end this becomes a memorable experience that continues to live through the piece of Art hanging on your wall.
Feel free to contact me via e-mail to set up an appointment (free of charge of course). During our conversation we will cover as many details of your piece as possible: subject matter,composition, color palette, size, price range, etc. The more questions I am able to answer for you the better informed and relaxed you will feel as you proceed to the next step , if you choose to do so.
Depending upon the subject, I can either take my own reference photos or work from yours or from a combination of both if needed. I have found that there are no rules set in stone when it comes to this. Sometimes the “more the merrier” but often the right shot captures the spirit of the subject. I will do my best to translate your vision and in the case of an animal portrait to capture his or her unique amazing spirit.
Next step, will be signing the agreement. Please download the contract by clicking the button below:
Again, we can go over any question(s) you have until we make sure we are on the same page.
Once the legalities are taken care of , I am off to my studio where I will literally pour my heart and soul into creating your piece of Art.
I will periodically keep you updated on the process and will let you know when I am near completion so that you make the necessary arrangements : like preparing wall space, specific delivery instructions, and clearing balance due.
Voila! simple as that….let me share one example with you…
Fiona is a darling Fjord mare, sweet , powerful and so exciting to paint! her Rubenesque shapes and bi-color mohack cut mane were a dream come true to my creative Spirit.
Still the challenge was all about getting the right angle to show her powerful grace, the tack to look well fitted and her to look happy about it… 50 plus photos later, the issue was resolved by utilizing on photo for major reference and a couple more were muzzle looks relaxed and happy.The final piece brought tears to the eyes Mom’s eyes….ans mines as well.
I cherish the experience!
