Before you go down the commission path, consider having me do this:
Tape out the size of a painting in the space you are considering it for and take a picture. Send me the image of this wall straight on and tell me the dimensions of a painting you are looking for. Also tell me the names of some paintings you like and I will photoshop them in your space. This will give you an good idea of how my work looks in your home or office. NO FEE.
Things I now charge fees for (I cannot continue to absorb these expenses and unlimited uses of my time):
Site visit. In Bellingham $150 per visit. Bellingham to Seattle, $300 per visit.
A painting preview in a Bellingham home. Under 40" $150. Over 40" $250
A painting preview in a home in the greater Seattle area Under 40" $300 Over 40" $450 **van rental required to move large paintings
Purchased painting delivery--Same as a painting preview
Framing will be considered for paintings under 40". Cost of frame plus 2x markup. This covers my time to assemble and fit frame. I NO LONGER FRAME ANY PAINTINGS OVER 40".
Installation or Hanging will be billed for time. $100 per hour. This is in addition to a delivery or site visit charge.

Commission Requests are welcome. However, I strongly encourage you to read the steps at the left before contacting me. I cannot stress enough that you need to know what you want before getting me involved. It is your specific space and needs that are being considered in this type of request, otherwise you would collect/purchase a painting that I've created from my own intentions.
Therefore, the name of a reference painting or photo, size and palette are the things that you need to define for yourself. As a client request, which is what a commission is, I am painting to your specifications. A commission is not me interpreting your space or me whoo whooing out of thin air and a few "i would likes" a painting.
I have created many successful commissions. They are successful when one of my paintings is used as a reference and the commission is created to the client's size and color palette. Please note that I now charge to deliver, frame or hang any art.
If this has all scared you away, but you still don't see an available painting in the size that works for your space in the categories above, then a FIRST DIBS might be the right avenue for you. Please fill in the request below but in the comments write FIRST DIBS for size ______. I'll then contact you first when I've completed a work of your desired size and you can say yes or no.
