A commission is different from other projects I work on in that it is requested by someone who trusts me to create a painting that often features something personal. This has included pets, a vehicle, an airplane, and most often places with deep significance.
I have often recreated scenes that share historical narratives which requires considerable research, the use of historic black and white photos, listening to personal histories, and a bit of imagination.
Collaborating with a client is an honour and one of my favourite methods of creating the most unique paintings. My hope is that these commissioned paintings are passed along for generations.
If you are interested in commissioning a painting, I invite you to contact me to discuss the possibilities.
