Commissioned Paintings

Have you ever considered having a favorite photo, (of your boat, plane, car or whatever excites you), used as the reference for an original painting and created in Acrylic on Canvas? It’s one of the services I offer, here’s how it works:

You e mail me the image, or send it via snail mail to my studio along with your contact information and a self-addressed stamped envelope to return your image, I evaluate the image, make recommendations about size as well as state a price for the production of the painting based on its size and complexity. We’ll work out the details via our e mail communication or by phone if you’d prefer. Upon agreement and deposit I produce the painting, send the image of the finished painting for your approval and you make final payment. I then package the painting and ship it to you.

Although I have painted people in some of my paintings I haven’t done portraits as commissions, there are artists who specialize in that area and you’d be better off locating one of them if you want a portrait. I will do altered, photographic prints on canvas of images of people however, at a much lower price than a painted image, just retouched or after being altered with a Photoshop technique which you would see a proof of before committing. Same canvas, ink and finish treatment. I have in some cases rejected an image being considered because of the amount of detail involved or other considerations that would make it impossible for me to represent the image well. 

The base price for the smallest size format, (12x16 inch or 8x22 inch image size), is $550 plus shipping which for that size is about $20 USPS Ground with a bit of insurance. A 20% non-refundable deposit is required for this service to be paid after approval of size and price.

 

Below is an example of a recently completed commission that cost $550, image size 8x22 with 2 inch wide Antique Gold frame.

Another commission, this one is 30x40 inches, quite large, paintings in this size range start at about $1800 for less detailed images.

A surfer friend had me paint this one of Pavones, a left-hander in Costa Rica with Matapala across the bay in the distance.

My friend Don and I spent some good times on his vintage Knight Brothers boat, “Grits”, seen here in Little Harbour along with the reference used to paint the image.
