Art Commission Process
It all starts with an email to email@example.com I like to first gather information from you in certain categories. These questions help me determine the size, materials and time needed so I can give a more accurate estimate:
1. ART SURROUNDINGS - In what room will the piece hang? What is the color scheme of that space? What are the wall measurements? What is the wall color/material? If you don't know what size would be proportionate, I am happy to make a recommendation based on the location of the piece. And you don't have to stick to standard sizes - I am able to get customized sizes in a variety of substrates.
3. BUDGET/TIMING - Is there a budget and/or timeframe in mind? As a general rule, customized artworks are 15-20% higher than artworks you might see on my website to cover the additional time required for back-and-forth communication and planning.
Armed with this information, it is my turn to get quotes from vendors, price out materials and time relevant to size and selected style. An estimate will detail all costs including materials, my time, shipping and tax, as well as a turnaround time frame so that there are no surprises and what to expect along the way. If approved, 50% deposit is due up front, and the second half upon completion.
