COMMISSION A PAINTING!
Still can’t forget that “restful, beautiful sandy beach”, “inspirational sunrise”, “romantic sunset”, “rustic rice paddy”, “invigorating mountain wonderland”, “ancient temple”, or “peaceful lake”? Have your favorite, inspiring experience captured in a painting!
OR; do you just have a place on your “Bucket List” that you haven’t traveled to yet?
Send me a photo of your favorite landscape or memory, tell me why you love it and why it’s on your bucket list! I will give you a painting that captures the essence of your experience.
Don’t have a photo? Feel free to choose one from my many travels!
Please fill out the form below and indicate whether you have a photo or would like to use one of mine. Upon contact, I will call/email you to discuss the photo you send so I understand why you love the landscape. We will discuss size of canvas, style, color and I will send studies and photos with updates on how your painting is coming along!
Prices for a commission start at $1,100 for a painting sized 50 x 60cm (approximately 20 x 25 inches). Based on materials and size, price will change accordingly. A 50% deposit is required on commissions.
Examples of commissioned paintings are included below.
The Golden Pavilion or Kinkaku-ji in Kyoto, Japan
A national landmark painted in gold leaf as part of a reconstruction; the Golden Pavilion was originally a family villa later converted into a Zen Buddhist temple upon the owner’s death. A World Heritage site and an iconic symbol of travels in Japan – the client wanted to preserve the memory of being awestruck when seeing it in person. Since the client did not have a photograph, the couple chose a photograph from my collection as a template for the composition. This was done with Oil and Gold Leaf on Canvas. The Gold Leaf is being applied as a background for the Pavilion itself – as it is “gold”.
