The commission process can vary depending on the specific project but for the most part the following Q&A should help
Q: How much does a commission cost or how is it priced?
A: The short quick answer is aprox $1.00 per square inch. Smaller projects actually work out to more per square inch and large one less.
A longer answer would include a little more explanation about projects. The average projects are homestead paintings from a photograph the client supplies. The average sizes are 11×14 and 16×20 but these are just the typical standard sizes because they are easier to frame.
In most cases, where the photograph is provided, the following will apply:
Q: What about the colorful animal paintings? Are they prices the same as typical commissions?
A: No. The colorful animal portraits are less expensive as these can be painted much more quickly.
Q: Tell me more about the initial process?
A: The image is provided buy the client; details and deadlines are discussed.
Q: Do I pay up front or at the end?
A: Typically a deposit equal to half the agreed upon fee is collected once work begins. The final half is due upon delivery or before if shipping is required.
Q: Who pays for shipping?
A: The client is responsible for the shipping fees before the item can be shipped.
Q:Will I see daily or weekly progress photos?
A: The artist may contact the client a few times with additional questions as she begins work or works through the painting but you may not necessarily see progress photos unless the artist has a question.
If you have any additional questions about commissions or acquiring prints or existing originals, please contact the artist.
