The 5 Easy Steps of a Commissioned Painting

1. Determine the artist.

2. Meet with the artist in your home (or wherever you would like the artwork to be). Discuss color and size.

3. Review sketches that capture the details of the discussion. A 20% deposit is required at this point.

4. Meet with artist when the work is 75% finished to give your input.

5. The painting is delivered.

Rest assured, if you do not love the piece, you don't have to buy it! Please note: commissions may take up to one month to complete.
