Custom Paintings & Commissions

As an artist who is focused on capturing the feelings and emotions of unique locations, I often receive requests to produce commissioned paintings. It is always an honor to paint a location that is meaningful.

I travel when feasible or work from photographs, but the site does not necessarily have to be readily accessible. Some locations exist only in memories, and we can work together to produce a painting that embodies the images and feelings you have in your mind.

The Process

Commissioned paintings start at $3000 and are considered on a case-by-case basis. Pricing is determined based on the size and intricacy of the piece. A limited number of commissioned pieces are accepted each year.

The creative process is collaborative, and typically follows this sequence:

  • Meet and discuss the concept
  • Visit and / or review available images of the location
  • Consider the emotional and historical weight the site carries
  • Sketches, studies, mockups
  • Approved composition
  • 6-12 weeks production time
  • final delivery
