A commissioned piece, whether it is a portrait, still life, landscape, or abstract is a creative collaboration between the client and me. We work as partners to create the piece that you desire.

The Artistic Process:

  • We discuss your vision for the piece: the theme, composition, lighting, size, and point of display.
  • You receive a detailed contract outlining the working process, the time line, and the fees for the project.
  • At contract signing, one-third of the total fees are due. Your project is added to the schedule, and I begin the charcoal and color studies, and plan the associated creative elements.
  • Your piece is designed, and a full-sized charcoal sketch of the painting and a smaller color study are created for your approval.
  • Upon your approval of the sketches, one-third of the total fees are due.
  • Painting begins.
  • Your painting is delivered and the final fees are due.

"The client is always welcome to interact at any stage throughout the process in order to insure complete satisfaction with the product they are purchasing."

Please feel free to send me an email if you have questions/comments about my work or would like more information regarding a commission.
