Q. What is the Right of Refusal?

A. If you are unhappy with your custom painting you are not required to pay the final 50% fee. I will do my utmost to accomodate requests for minor changes, but if a resolution cannot be reached, I will keep the painting and you don't owe anything more. 


Q. Is the 50% deposit refundable?

A. Sorry, no. Your deposit pays for supplies and the hours it takes to make your painting.


Q. What's in the contract? 

A. I use a standard contract that states the terms of the project, including agreed upon imagery, size, completion deadlines, price, receipt of payments, etc. I use contracts on principle. They both clarifiy business agreements and protect your interests as much as mine.


Q. What forms of payment are accepted?

A. I accept many forms of payment including credit cards, Pay Pal, personal checks, and cash.


Q. How long does a painting usually take?

A. It depends on the complexity of your painting and my current commission schedule. In general, I can complete a simple, medium sized painting in one month. This is only the painting time and does not include all initial decision making processes or dry time for the oil paints, which may be extended during the cold/wet season.


Q. Is it possible to have a painting completed in one week?

A. Yes, it is possible. In extreme cases, I have been able to deliver small paintings under a tight deadline. However, the cost of your painting increases (I'd shelve other projects to accomodate yours) and the painting must be picked up in person. The oils may still be too wet to ship.


Q. How much creative input is required?

A. As much as you want to give! I'd love to collaborate with you to envision the most powerful painting possible. I'm an open and communicative person and enjoy tossing around ideas. If you feel you don't have much to contribute, that's fine too! I can imagine a painting for you.
