HOW DO YOUR NO-RISK COMMISSIONS WORK?
Let me be your muse. I want to paint for you a painting of YOUR dreams! If you like my artistic style but don't see exactly what you are looking for, we need to pow wow. For communications sake, it is best to start with a point of reference. So take a look at my available work and my archived work. Be aware of what attracts you to a piece and know I will do my best to recreate that energy for you. You may consider color changes, orientation (horizontal/vertical/square) changes, or you may want your initials or a sketchy Eiffel Tower hidden in the background, or a chakra symbol... whatever! I am happy to work with paint chips, fabric swatches, or many combinations of reference. The best art is the art that speaks something to and of the beholder.
I will send you a photograph of your completed piece. If it is less than you had hoped, you are under no obligation to purchase the painting. I will be happy to tweak it to your specifications if possible.. You will have two weeks to decide if you would like to purchase the piece once it is complete. I require payment in full prior to shipping. Should you decide not to purchase it, I reserve the right to offer it for sale to my viewing public. To date, this has never happened, but I mention it for the sake of clarity.
Keep in mind that I only accept commissions that are consistent with the look and feel of my own work. Also, as each painting is completely original and hand-painted, it is virtually impossible to duplicate exactly. Naturally I can reproduce the concepts, colors and feel of my work, but of course the fewer constrictions the more energy is infused.
I do not charge an up-charge for any commission work.
Minimum size on metal: 24" x 24"
Maximum size on metal: 48" x 120" (Although I'm currently exploring soldering pieces together for massive installation)
The length of time required to compete a commission depends mostly on my schedule. But I can usually complete it and ship it within six weeks.
PRICING: The current price on all of my work, including commissions, is $2.00 per square inch. So multiply the length you need by the width and then multiply that number by 2.
Will a representing gallery ship me a piece?
They would be happy to! Please contact them directly for their specific and unique policies - Representing Galleries
WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?
I accept all major credit cards and so do my Representing Galleries.
How does a float-mount FRAME work?
The metal painting is affixed to a frame structure with either a powerful adhesive or industrial strength velcro. The framing structure is approximately 3" shorter on each side of the painting. So if a painting is 20" x 20" the structure will be 14" x 14". It is black, flat and 1 1/2 - 2" deep. It will come with a wired hanger, completely ready to hang. The cost of this framing system is included in the price of the artwork.
The visual effect is that the painting is floating off the wall. This looks works particularly well in modern and contemporary settings.
