The Commission Process
and Policies...

I specialize in live wedding painting but also enjoy painting portraits, architecture, village scenes and landscapes. Family members and pets can be added into any painting for a personalized touch.

Many people enjoy having an artist paint on-site during their special event, but in some cases this is not possible, so working from photo is an excellent option.

For studio paintings, first, we will exchange ideas about your vision. We determine the subject, content, time of day, style, canvas size, and cost. We will review photos to determine the best choice. Pending a sketch for your comments and approval, a 50% deposit is requested. I send progress images for feedback and for final approval prior to shipping the artwork. I’m sorry, there are no refunds for commissioned work.

For live wedding painting, we discuss canvas size, travel, and cost. A 50% deposit is required to secure my services, and there is a 24-hour grace period for a full refund. The balance is due one week before the wedding date. I cover the cost of shipping if it is within Colorado. If unforeseen illness or injury disables me from attending an event, I will render the painting from photo reference.

I look forward to creating a gorgeous painting your family will cherish for generations ahead!

Everything you has said and more has come true in this painting. My wife and I greatly appreciate your masterpiece and it will always hold a place in our hearts.”
