I do take commissions but on a limited basis with the understanding that it may take me 3-4 months to complete a painting. I prefer to be interested in the subject matter before I will take on a painting. I usually have 3-4 paintings going at the same time in different stages of development and will do everything possible to fit your painting into that schedule.

If I accept the commission, I will do a concept drawing or a computer rendering of the basic elements and will only start the painting after you have agreed to the concept. I may require you to provide photographs etc. of the subject matter you wish to have painted or we can use my extensive reference library for that purpose.

During the painting process I will periodically communicate with you regarding the progress of the painting and any changes I would like to make to the basic concept such as adding or removing objects (trees, rocks, animals, buildings, etc.), color schemes, canvas configurations, etc.

I strongly believe in customer satisfaction. If you are not 100% satisfied with the final product, all you have to do is return it to me undamaged within 30 days for a full refund. I do require a 25% deposit before I start the concept and another 25% when I actually start the painting. The remainder is payable upon completion.

Price for commission work is based on size and complexity and is negotiable.
