How to commission an original custom painting
I love painting architecture—especially homes—and try to always bring an element of interest and warmth to every commissioned painting. With a background in advertising and marketing, I'm used to working on assignments so you can be assured of a professional experience with your commission.
I can work from your photos or on location within a reasonable distance from Media, PA. It also helps to know the street address as I reference Google Street View to gather additional information such as angle of the sun. I often embellish or enhance landscaping and other elements to best showcase the main subject.
Once I receive your photos along with a 50% deposit, I will proceed to a sketch you'll receive via e-mail for approval. Once you are satisfied, I'll proceed to the finished painting. Allow at least two weeks—more is better as oil paintings need time to dry especially if the work will be shipped.
Oil paintings are created on canvas panels; pastel paintings on sanded board. All materials are professional quality and archival. Prices do not include framing but I work in standard sizes so you can easily purchase your own frame, have it professionally framed, or I can provide framing at an additional cost. Shipping is extra and in the U.S. only at this time. Paypal or personal checks accepted.
