Commissioning a work brings the patron into the creative process.  We will first discuss some of your preferences and together we will gather reference material, color pallets, and dimensions.  If you would like to meet in person, I will make some preliminary sketches as we talk;  these will be yours to keep once the project is complete.  After we agree on a direction for the piece and a price, I will require half of that amount to begin work.  I maintain communication with the client throughout the process and am willing to send progress reports at any time.  The final payment is made upon delivery.
