It's easier than you think to co-create something you love.
"Commission" is a hoity-toity, aristocratic-sounding word, I know. But it's just what it says: a co-(shared) mission... to make you the piece of art you want! You don't have to be a bajillionaire to commission artwork with me, either. ;)
Maybe you've got a particular idea in mind: a splash of color for that wall above the couch, or a meaningful gift for an upcoming anniversary. Or maybe you're feeling experimental and want to ride along for the process, to see how a painting is made from start to finish. Your job is to think about what you want to see. Are you looking for specific colors? A particular mood or feeling? A certain medium—acrylic paint, collage, oil pastel, pencil, mosaic? Also consider your budget, and estimate the size of the artwork you're seeking.
Some commissions I receive are specific: "The Virgin of Guadalupe," or "Dr. Who," with certain colors or scenes or images requested by the buyer. Some are more general: "I'd like a seascape, with inspirational words scattered across it." Others are open-ended: "I love your style. Paint me anything," with only the size pre-determined.
Afraid that working with an artist will be scary and threatening? Have you heard that we're all aloof, cranky, and flaky? Think again! I thrive on clear communication and deadlines. I enjoy collecting your ideas and turning them into a project that's as fun for me to make as it is for you to receive.
