Frequently Asked Questions
How do commissions work?
I'm so happy you're interested in a commissioned piece! I would love to make you a special painting, whether for your own home or as a gift for a loved one.
Your first step is to get in touch and let us know what you're looking for. Once we hear from you, we'll invite you to share more details and will then hop on the phone to discuss your piece. Exciting!
What is the pricing for commissions?
Commissioned paintings are priced per linear inch (Length + Width = Linear Inch).
Commissioned works on paper are $17 per linear inch, and those can range from 5x5 (10 linear inches x $17 = $170) to 30x40 (70 linear inches x $17 = $1,190).
Commissioned works on canvas are $19 per linear inch, ranging from 5x5 to 48x60.
Do you paint in other medium besides watercolor?
Currently, I work in watercolor, india ink, and graphite on paper. For canvas paintings, I work in acrylic ink, as it behaves like watercolor on a canvas surface. I am not currently working in oil, pastel, or any other medium.
What is the paper quality of originals?
I use Arches Cold-Press Watercolor paper, 140lb. This is a fine paper with the perfect amount of texture, not too smooth and not too rough. I've loved my Arches watercolor blocks for years, and I wouldn't want to use anything else!
What kind of canvas do you use?
I paint on the highest quality Windsor & Newton canvases with a gallery-wrap edge, which provides completely smooth canvas on all sides. Its 1.65" thickness looks elegant and lovely when leaning against or hanging on a wall.
How much do original paintings cost?
Pieces on paper are $15 per linear inch (Length + Width = Linear Inch). Currently, I am working in 8x10's which are $270 for originals.

Do you offer prints?
Yes! We do limited-edition prints in runs of 100 for all original paintings.
This means only 100 will be produced of any given painting, ever. All limited-edition prints are the same size as the original painting.
At only one-third of the investment of the original, this is an excellent and affordable way to have special artwork in your home that only 99 others share with you, since there are only 100 prints for each original.
Packaging, Shipping, and Delivery
How are paintings delivered?
Paintings and prints are hand-packaged and shipped to your home, within two weeks. Each package is carefully wrapped to protect your pieces, and a handwritten note is enclosed.
