- Painting Commissions -


Commissions are great as gifts or to be enjoyed for yourself!  Below are some details about the process...


Paintings can either be done in acrylic, watercolor or oil, pricing varies by medium and size.  I will email you a list of questions about how you want the image to look (ie: flat, textured, smooth, absorbent, etc) and we can decide on your medium.

- All oil and acrylic paintings are done on a wood panel, this is my preference as they are more sturdy than canvas. Watercolor paintings can be done on paper or panel.

- Paintings can be done from my photographs or your photographs, but no one else's unless you have permission in writing from the photographer.  This is to make sure that neither party is responsible for violation of copyright.

- Pricing is done by square inch and doesn't include the price of the substrate (panel/paper/etc).  I will always source the best quality and pricing on substrates and let the buyer know what the options are!  Details and examples below.  

- Minimum commission size is 8x8 inches, maximum is 48x60 inches

- Turn around time depends on the size/medium and will be given to you at the time of your inquiry.

- Shipping is not included in the pricing.  I will work out the most cost effective shipping rate to your address once your inquiry is sent.

- Send all commission inquiries to: amyshawley@gmail.com
