Interested in a custom oil painting or drawing? Use the contact form to inquire but first, find more information below:
Generally I charge $2-6/square inch for a custom oil painting. I charge $0.50-5/square inch for drawings with graphite and tempra. This price is based on my discretion and can be more or less than the above stated range. I do not provide "bulk" discounts or returning customer discounts. Currently I am not doing acrylic painting commissions.
Once an idea is finalized a contract will be drawn and a 50% non-refundable deposit is required. This covers the cost of materials and labor. If in the end for what ever reason you decide you no longer want the painting, the deposit will not be returned.
Layaway is available under special circumstances. A 50% non-refundable deposit is still required. The artwork will be delivered once the final layaway payment clears.
Custom pieces can be as small as a 10"x10" or as large as 18"x24. If you are interested in something larger, consider purchasing an existing piece found under the work tab. Pricing is available here.
Commissions are done on Masterpiece Brand, Winsor & Newton, or Fredrix Brand canvases. I use artist brand archival materials unless discussed otherwise. This ensures your piece will last longer than just one lifetime.
Please allow 1-2 months for oil painting commissions to be completed from the time the initial deposit payment clears.
Please allow up to one month for drawings to be completed from the time the initial deposit clears.
If you want your piece expedited a fee may be applied. However, oil painting commissions will not be completed within a week to ensure quality.
Come with your ideas! The final image will be determined by me but I would love your input. It's ultimately going to be your painting after all!
I prefer not to recreate images of celebrities, superheroes, cartoon characters etc. On occasion exceptions may be made.
I do not recreate exact copies of the work of another artist. It's best to contact that artist if you want work that looks like theirs.
I do not create logos for business/personal use or recreate logos on canvas.
I do not create photorealistic portraits. Please look at my work to get an idea of the art I make. If you are looking for a recreation of a family photo or of your grandkids, I may not be the artist for you.
I will not create images that proliferate racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, or ideology that intends to harm a specific group.
