Commissions are always welcome and are an opportunity to work together creatively.  If you have a vision or desire for a unique piece of art, let's discuss it and make it become a reality.  I am happy to provide quotes based on the size and complexity of the subject matter.  Feel free to ask questions. This should be a comfortable partnership and an enjoyable experience from start to finish.

Previous commissions have included, but are not limited to:

  • Coastal (seascapes, seashells)
  • Food
  • Pet portraits
  • Landscapes
  • Holiday-themed art

The Stages of a Commission

Contact:  Email, write, or call me to discuss a potential commission.  Describe what you want.  This is a chance for us both to ask questions.

Quote:  Based on our conversation(s), I will provide a quote and delivery time frame in writing for your approval. Commissions within the State of Texas will incur an 8.25% sales tax. Note: Prices start at $200 for a 6" x 6" oil painting and increase based on complexity and size. For pet portraits, the minimum size offered is 8" x 10" (vertical or horizontal) with a starting price of $400. 

Down Payment:  When you are ready to embark on the commission, I will email an invoice based on the quoted amount. Before work commences, you will need to make a non-refundable down payment of one half of the quote.  Upon receipt of the down payment, I will order materials and begin your painting.

Progress Photos:  Periodically, I will email progress photos of your painting.  This is the time to make minor changes.  To remain on schedule, it is imperative that you respond as quickly as possible to avoid potential delays in completion.

Drying Time:  Drying time for oil paintings can be significantly affected by outdoor temperatures and humidity.  This is especially true during the summer months.  I live in Texas, so please keep this in mind.

Final Payment:  I will invoice you for the balance due upon completion of your painting.

Shipping:  Small paintings are carefully packed by me and shipped via USPS Priority.  Larger paintings are professionally packed and shipped via UPS 2nd or 3rd Day Air.  All artwork is insured for its full value.  Delivery signatures are required.


Let me create a work of art for you or as a thoughtful and unique gift for someone special. Feel free to ask questions.  I welcome the opportunity.  Thank you!   Kristine
