The painting's owners are delighted with the likenesses of their beloved dogs. I am additionally pleased with abstract elements such as heightened color and value, enhanced patterns of sunlight, and shapes repeated in twos, threes, fours, fives, sixes, and sevens.

The Commission Process

1. You let me know the subject matter you want painted, your size requirements, and any other considerations that you deem important or helpful.

Note: Your input on content and purpose – everything from which subjective elements to be sure to include to the mood you want the painting to convey – is an integral part of the commission process.

2. We work together to determine your painting’s dimensions, time frame, and source material (in most cases, your own nonprofessional, non-copyrighted photo, in digital or hard copy).

3. Once we agree on the above, I send you a confirming contract to sign and return along with a check or money order for 50% of the agreed price of the painting. This 50% represents a nonrefundable deposit.

4. When the painting is completed, I e-mail you an image for your final approval, after which you remit payment for the balance of the painting price (and, for Maryland state residents, 6% sales tax) plus shipping, handling & insurance.

Note: You can opt to approve the painting in person, and to pick it up and pay for it at that time. If you choose this option, you save shipping, handling & insurance charges but are responsible for paying Maryland sales tax of 6% no matter what your state of residence.

5. Upon receipt of your final payment, I ship the painting and provide you with detailed tracking information.
