FAQ’s Commissioned Paintings What is a commissioned painting? It’s a painting that is costumed made just for you. How do I know what I want? Describe as specifically as possible what your thinking about. What subject do you want, landscape, portrait, still life, or something more abstract? Is this a gift? Is a holiday coming up? We will discuss materials necessary, color swatches, and reference photos. Ask me questions. How much does it costs? Flat Fee upon signing the contract (non-refundable):$50.00 Costs are based on the Surface, Mediums, Time, and the Shipping. Small Painting, Under 24x36in.: $50.00 - $500.00 Larger Paintings: Over 24x36in.: $501.00 - $1,500 What is the Contract? After we negotiate the terms and details of your commission, I will email or snail mail you the contract. This is a contract that outlines costs, the due date, and copyright information. Do I have to pay the full amount at the beginning? No. The full amount is split up into two payments. 50% of the works price (minus the non-refundable fee) is due within 30 days of accepting the proposal. Once the painting is completed, the remaining 50% is due within 7 days after I finish the work. How long will it take? Working with layers of oil paint and producing beautiful paintings takes time. Time is based on the subject and size of your piece. I start at a month and then go up from there. How do I pay? You can pay using PayPal, my email is Tanyamg@mac.com or you can pay by check. PayPal is fast and secure and opening an account is easy and free. What medium do you use? I paint with oil paint on both panel and canvas surfaces. Do you accept returns? No, I do not accept returns. Make sure to measure your space to make sure the painting will fit. ** You are the collector; you will be involved throughout this process and will receive a beautiful painting. Before sending your invoice and/or shipping out your painting to you, I will send you an email of your image for your approval. I will also send you images throughout the painting process. I hope this helps and if you have any questions that are not outlined above, please feel free to contact me. Tanyamg@mac.com -Tanya
