How to Commission a Painting
Send me one (or more) of your photos that you would like me to use for reference. If you don't have a photo, I can provide a few images for you to choose from out of my personal image reference library.
Provide any pertinent details including:
Style of painting desired. Any combination of my usual styles will work: surreal, expressionist colors along with any color preferences, or image-reproduction
A 50% deposit is required with the signed contract before I start the painting. Please see pricing details below.

On completion of the painting, I will email you a photograph of it for your approval.
Once you are completely happy with the finished painting, the rest of the payment can be made securely online by PayPal. US customers can also call with a credit card number (phone number provided upon request).
Then, as soon as the painting is dry, it will be shipped to you. Shipping is included in the price.
