COMMISSIONING A PAINTING

Let's Talk

If you live within a 60 mile radious of Walnut Creek, I will meet you at your home or place of business to discuss your artistic vision. Otherwise, we can chat on the phone.

I have a time-tested process in place to help you realize your preferred colors, content, and overall design.

The Edges

There are four choices for the edges of your art: framed, shou sugi ban, painted, stained or bare.

 

Framing choices are: black, white or brown floating wood frames from my excellent framer.

 

Shou Sugi Ban is a Japanese process that involves torching, scraping and washing the edges creating a natural stain that highlights the grain of the wood.

Agreement

Once the details are agreed upon, both parties will sign the contract, and the work will commence.

10% of the total price is due before work begins. This is a non-refundable deposit that protects the buyer. The deposit is subtracted from the total amount once the art is complete.

Shipping

As soon as payment is accepted, the work will either be hand delivered or carefully packaged and shipped.

The buyer is responsible for all shipping costs, and this amount is included in the contract. No surprises!
