Custom watercolor painting of your town or favorite place. I've done many commissions for City Hall, Hospitals and individual clients. My work is exhibited in many prominent permanent collections and I have professional representation. While I do many commercial and professional paintings, I take a limited number of private commissions each year at drastically reduced fees because I truly believe art should be affordable and accessible to all!
I paint with the end framing requirements in mind. The cheapest custom frame is upwards of $300 so I paint in standard framing/mat sizes so that customers are not locked in. There's nothing more ridiculous to me than a client paying more for a frame than they did for an original work of art.
Client must submit photos via email for specific subjects.
I use Arches 140lb cold press watercolor paper (the finest!) which is acid free/archival. On portrait commission work, I use only the highest grade paints with a touch of acrylic medium to prevent water damage and fading issues. Your painting is an investment so I do what I can to ensure it will be lasting.
Pricing varies by painting size and increases with complexity as more time and materials are required.
*Please note that I do NOT do 8x10 paintings of cityscapes as buildings become microscopic.
11x14 begins at $500
16x20 begins at $750
22x30 begins at $1,000
