...regarding commissions...

I recently completed a beautiful commissioned painting for a young man as a special first anniversary gift to his wife. It was from her favorite wedding photo. I painted it on a nice, gallery wrapped canvas with acrylics. It was the most AMAZING gift!  I photographed it through the various stages of completion, and emailed him the photos every week or so-- I wanted him to feel part of the creative process. This year, I painted a portrait of their newborn son. 

A  commissioned painting, is simply a painting that I paint for you using good, clear photographs. It can be a portrait of your loved one, a child, your grandma--it could be a special pet, perhaps even one that has passed on. It can be a favorite place from a vacation, a honeymoon--you name it.


It is no more expensive than my normal paintings, and I can make it affordable for you. I can take several forms of payment, including Paypal, Venmo, credit cards, personal checks, cashier checks or money orders--I can even take payments.

I paint with watercolors on professional quality paper, or with acrylics on canvas or birch panels. The look of each is quite different--but the watercolors need special matting and framing with glass, whereas the acrylics can be framed or not, depending on your preference, which could help keep your costs down.

  • I offer several sizes and price ranges.

  • I do the framing if requested, which costs much less than professional framing.

  • I offer quality giclee prints on paper or canvas of your painting if you would like to share.

  • The photographs to be used must either be taken by you, by me, or permission must be obtained from the photographer. 

  • A painting takes some time to complete and finish properly, so please allow four to six weeks. (I charge extra for stress ;)

  • You will love your painting--it is absolutely guaranteed!

If you are considering requesting a commissioned painting, email me, or give me a call. Ask LOTS of questions! I am friendly and professional, and I will make the process easy for you :)
