MORE F.A.Q ON COMMISSIONING A PAINTING
WHAT IS THE PROCESS LIKE?
Once I receive your commission request, I'll be in touch to discuss the piece. Upon agreement, I require 50% deposit (the remainder due will be paid once the painting has been completed, before shipping). Via e-mail, I will send you an invoice for the deposit. The deposit can be paid with e-transfer, or via PayPal. Once the deposit has been paid I will add you to my calendar and start painting! Upon completion, I will send you photos of your lovely custom painting.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Pricing depends on the size of the piece. This will be confirmed once you have successfully completed the Commission Request Form.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
1-3 months. If time is a constraint, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for an estimated start date.
DO YOU FRAME THE ARTWORK?
Commissions are sold un-framed. We recommend that you take the painting or print directly to a local framer upon arrival.
HOW MUCH WILL IT COST TO SHIP?
The cost of shipping depends on the size and weight of the piece. The client is responsible for all shipping charges. If desired, a shipping quote will be issued before the commission agreement is made. If you are local, we can arrange for pick-up from my studio.
WHAT SIZES CAN I ORDER?
Any size you like!
WHAT IF I CHANGE MY MIND?
You are not committed to purchase if you decide the piece is not for you. You may use the non-refundable 50% deposit as store credit.
