Commission your painting
Custom original paintings for special occasions
Mary can do a special personalized painting from your photograph of your old homeplace, favorite hunting spot, special pet, or your family member.
To commission a painting, contact the artist:
- Email Mary at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Send photos of the subject or scene. Take photos from several different angles. Consider the light and shadow on the subject. Natural light is best on portraits. Be sure to include your contact info.
- I advocate the view you like best, but please give the artist opportunity for input.
- Mary will estimate the cost based on the size and complexity of the work.
- If you want to commission the painting, send one-half the estimate and Mary will begin.
- Most projects can be done within four weeks (except around Christmas). Please allow eight weeks before Christmas.
