A commissioned painting is one of a kind personalized landscape that has meaning to you, and that enhances your living space. This could be a scenery from your cottage, a nature walk, or a beautiful landscape from the top of a mountain. Maybe you like a painting that I've done in the past, but need a specific colour or size for your room.
For inquires on commission paintings, please fill out the form below and I will get back to you within 48 hours. I've listed below the process and what it takes to create the perfect piece.
The Process of Creating a Custom Painting:
- Fill out the form below and I will touch base and schedule a call/video call. It's a creative and engaging process between client and artist.
- As we proceed I will request the following:
- I will need to know which piece(s) of mine you’re most draw to, so that I can see what colours, brushstrokes, and designs you like. No two paintings are exactly alike but I can certainly aim to recreate something inspired to the reference ideas you provide.
- The desired size of painting and orientation (horizontal, vertical, square). If you are not sure, send me a photo of the wall that you will hang it on, and the dimension of an associated element that is near by, such as a fireplace mantel.
- Provide your thoughts on your vision and colour preferences.
- 1-3 reference photos of what you would like to have painted, or website links to the images.
- Propose and sign commission contract.
- Provide a 50% commission deposit, non-refundable. Paintings range in price from $1,200 – $10,000+ ( shipping & taxes are extra)
- The painting commence as agreed. I will send an initial sketch and an update mid-way. Upon completion of the painting I will send a final photo where you can approve or request minor edits. Any extensive edits (as judged extensive by the artist) are subject to a 15% additional fee. A painting is usually completed with 3 weeks of scheduled date.
- An oil painting takes 1 month to fully dry before it can be shipped.
- Final payment and shipping costs. I will send an invoice via email.
- Painting is shipped once shipping costs and final payment are made. If you are local to the Ottawa and Gatineau regions, we can arrange for a faster delivery.
I'm creating artwork for you, which is so energizing and motivating! If you are thinking of commissioning me to create a landscape oil painting don't hesitate to reach out. After our initial conversations I will be honest with you and decide whether it is something I can do, and if it aligns with style and abilities. It's a blessing and honour to receive trust to create a personal piece.
