For example, here's how the process might work for creating art around your travel memories:

  • You provide a selection of your top 5-10 clear, high-quality photograph you've taken from your travels and escapades. In these photos, there's something, an experience, an idea, a mood or an object you wish to capture and remember. Watch the quick demo below:

 

 

 

  • Note: Any portraits or figurative work are painted in a highly abstracted or stylized style similar to, but not exactly like, the samples below.

      • You'll have the amazing opportunity to experience being part of the creative process when we discuss via email:
        • the aspects of our work that resonates with you
        • as well as mood you're seeking,
        • your travel experience,
        • colors you enjoy the most,
        • subject matter
        • and the space the art will live in,
        • plus the purpose for the commission.
      We'll take it from there. These nuggets will serve as wonderful inspiration (but not exact direction) for the creation of a truly meaninful painting based on your slow travel experiences.
        • When applicable, the original artwork will ship via Fed Ex or USPS with a tracking number for you to follow your art as the painting makes its way to you.
        • Artwork is typically shipped flat and unframed.

        HIGHLIGHTS


        A 50% deposit with a signed letter of agreement gets the process started. This signals to us we can confidently block out design time in the design schedule, making that time automatically unavailable to other folks.

        The remaining balance is due upon completion of each scheduled milestone payment to help you keep track of your project’s progress.

        • Turn around time is three [3] to ten [10]  weeks  for one painting depending on the complexity of the project, type of commission, schedules, media used, drying times, the availability of materials ordered etc.

        For example: please see sample pricing for a 5'x7" original acrylic painting, on wood panel, in a 10" x 8" frame.
          • Not included are things like travel expenses, changes to the painting beyond those covered in the original proposal etc. These tend to be rare and considered on a project by project basis, as they are requested or occur.  Priced hourly.
          • Hourly fees* - occur for certain types of projects only:
          • on-site projects or site-specific ones like murals, door art, visual reportage documentation, urban sketching events etc. (per diem rates)

          • change orders
          • and anything else beyond items already included in the original proposal and letter of agreement.
