Currently, my commission fee is 20% higher than my regular prices. The reason for this is that it simply takes so much more time to paint a custom order.
You contact me asking for a commission. Yay!
Calculating the price.
Like many artists, I use a simple formula for paintings larger than 11x14. Length plus width in inches multiplied times 20 (L+W x 20). A commissioned painting will be that formula + 20%. For example, a 36x36 painting bought directly from my store would cost $1,440. A commissioned 36x36 calculates to $1,728, but I would likely round it down to $1,700.
Other Things to Consider.
If you want a custom canvas/board size that isn’t a standard size in stock, please add $100 as these have to be made-to-order. If you are uncertain as to whether something is standard size, please e-mail me.
Frequently there are revisions back and forth between you and me. I want you to be DELIGHTED for what you want, so sometimes I have to go back several times to make changes. I will e-mail you work-in-progress photos to make sure I am on track.
This has not happened before, but I expect it will at some point in the future. I will offer a refund minus 25% cost of the painting. If I am able to re-sell your painting, I will refund you the 25%.
Turn Around Time.
Approximately two weeks.
