Commissions are a wonderful opportunity to collaborate with collectors on a custom painting. If you have an idea of something you would like created, let's work together!
Below is a summary of the process:
1. Email Me Your Commission Idea
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with a description of the painting you would like created. Please include:
- One or two reference photos of your idea if possible.
- The size of the painting you would like created.
- One or two links to your favorite paintings by me.
- Any other specific information you can provide regarding color, brush style, look, vibe, feeling, etc.
2. Commission Agreement & Timeline
I will reply back with a commission contract and a timeline slot. We will also take more time to discuss the project so I am clear about your vision before beginning the project.
3. Deposit Payment Captured
Once the commission agreement is signed, I will send a bill for the painting which you can pay online. Commissions require a 50% deposit to book and they are non refundable. Shipping prices depend on the size of the painting and are an additional cost. See below for standard pricing.
Painting production is approx 4-6 weeks after the contract is signed and payment is received. I send updates throughout the process so clients can see how the work is progressing and make any change requests along the way.
5. Final Approval & Final Payment
Upon completion, I will send a photo for client approval. Once approved, I send a bill for the client to pay the final balance plus shipping (if applicable). Once the final approval and payment have been received, the painting is ready for shipment!
6. Shipping & Delivery
Your painting will ship fully insured via UPS. I require a signature upon delivery.
Additional sizes are available upon request.
*Please Note: 36x48, 48x60 and larger canvases will be shipped as rolled canvas unless pickup or my delivery in FL or ME is possible. Rolled canvas can be stretched on to stretcher bars by a professional framer. Collectors within 50 miles of Tampa FL receive complimentary delivery.
Framing is not included in my price but I am happy to make recommendations, just ask.

Sizing for a specific wall Space
My clients, Linda and Andy, were initially interested in a different painting but the size was too big. So we measured the space together and I painted the scene they were looking for at the size they needed.
For this commission project, my client, Steve, emailed me to ask if I could paint a photo from his sunset view. It was a gift for his wife featuring a sailboat coming home under a fiery sky.

"I’d like to take this moment to personally vouch for Anne’s stupendous work and talent! I hired Anne to paint a custom piece of a favorite scene to match the turquoise colors of my bedroom. She went on a few location scouting trips and then created a mini version to approve the colors and dimensions prior to working on the final masterpiece. I love it! It's absolutely perfect."
