INFO AND PRICING.
I want your piece to be special. Let me explain how this affects how you can request customized pieces or portraits. I don't reproduce pieces I have done in the past. If you want something similar, I can do it, I just need enough freedom so that the new piece doesn't fall flat. Recreating a piece sometimes can be such a difficult task that I focus too much on getting it to look exactly like the original and all of the "magic" is missing. This means that you can ask for a certain color palette, style, and subject and reference past work that you really like. We then meet or email back and forth so that I get a clear image of the direction the piece should go. I then do a sketch and after approval, I work on it until it is close to done. You get to see it close to finished to suggest any minor adjustments before it is signed, varnished and delivered.
Your Family Farm or Loved one... I can absolutely paint your family homestead, barn, farm buildings, pets, parents, etc. I'll need pictures - preferably digital format, but I have used original photos. Just put them in plastic for me or they may get painted!
Barns and Churches in the Americana Style are priced by size.
20"x20" - $260
24"x24" - $340
30"x30" - $450
36"x36" - $560
48"x48" - $1100
48"x60" - $1600
Add an additional $75 to prices above for any customized family barns/farmhouses/churches done from your photos.
Animal Paintings and all other more representational Paintings are priced by size, complexity, and time and are generally more expensive than the Americana Paintings. They are priced individually and available pieces should show the price if you click on an image in the gallery.
Portraits (pets and people) start at $545 for 24"x24." This is for a single person or pet and additional subjects in the painting increase the price. I prefer not to paint any portraits smaller than 24"x24."
PAYMENTS. For any customized painting or portrait, 50% of the cost is due at the time an agreement is made on the painting. The other 50% is due upon completion.
WARNING!!!! I AM COMPLETELY BEHIND GETTING COMMISSIONS DONE. There is about a 3-month wait for me to start any new commissions, and I need at least two months to complete your commission once it is started. I may also decide to not accept any further commissions in 2018 if I cannot get caught up soon.
