COMMISSIONING A PIECE OF ARTWORK
What is the piece for? How large will it be? What format? Are there specifications that need to be met?
Am I the artist for you? One of the best ways to get to know my artwork and me is through this website. Take some time to look at my Gallery. Get an idea of my style. What you see here represents what I've done, but it's not the extent of my artistic range. Each commission is unique.You'll find I am very flexible. I enjoy a challenge. If my artwork is something that you are interested in, contact me and we can discuss the details. I will also give you an idea of my current work schedule.
Selling a completed work of art is an event; producing a work of art on commission for another party is a relationship. The more successfully we communicate with each other, the more closely your expectations will be met.
We'll meet each other to discuss the project, either at my studio or where the artwork will be placed. I can create both large scale and smaller pieces to fit your needs. Price depends on many factors which include, size, duration of piece, shipping and possible installation. The evolution of the piece will affect the cost, and not always higher. Simpler is sometimes better.
We will sign a legally binding contract that includes details regarding the following: preliminary designs, payment schedule, completion date, insurance, shipping and installation, termination agreements, ownership and copyright, alterations and maintenance, contact information, and the state in which the work is produced.
Upon approval, I require 30% down payment. The down payment is nonrefundable. At that time I will proceed to work and complete the commissioned artwork as per time schedule discussed.
I encourage you to ask questions, and express your opinion about the art and its progress.
