When to consider a commission: Do you have a favourite place in mind that you’d like to see in a painting? What about an existing painting of mine that moves you, maybe you’d like a different size or shape for a special place in your home? Or a painting that is no longer available? Or a giclee you like, but prefer an original?
I love commissions. I find them very special to work on. I think about the unique things you have mentioned you like while I am painting. It is a fun way for me to share my style and message, and spurs me to try some things a little different sometimes, and I like to do it. Normally I prefer to work from my own references, visiting the site if it is your special place…but I can also refer to your photos.
The value is the same as any original, no extra. I don’t normally ask for a deposit. It will be unique and original in itself. Give me a call or email me.
Black Water, Red Maple
Maple in the Wind
Black Water, Red Maple: The first painting was created and sold. A commissioned piece was done later.
Maple in the Wind was a studio study following a trip to Grand Lake. Maple in the Wind II was commissioned very shortly after the first one sold.
Thinking of You | Dreaming of You
Thinking of You – the first painting, an unusual conceptual work I did, developed on a popular painting of mine looking out over Lake Clear.
Dreaming of You – the commission the same year, the clients saw Thinking of You already sold in my show.
Oh – the Cottage Life!
Shown are commissions based on the client’s conceptual idea or the original painting.
