The project will begin with the client emailing the artist or calling with a rough idea of the project, the subject matter and a timeline.
Please keep in mind the artist is usually booked up in advance, though special arrangements can be made at anytime to expedite the project.
The artist will then have a phone consultation with the client.
At this time, a high-resolution digital photograph/s (300 dpi – print quality) or physical photographs will be requested from the client.
Artist may ask for a video call with subject of painting.
After receiving the photo reference, the artist will approve or provide the client with a sketch if necessary.
Upon approval by the client, the artist will email or send a contract to the client.

During the consultation, we discussed what I would change, what she wanted changed, canvas size, where the painting would hang, color intensity, elements in the painting and the amount of details it would have. I wanted to change the boat angle and type.
My Completed Rendition.
This photo was provided by the client.
The photo had been taken at an extended family’s lake property.
Once the painting was finished, it was then presented to the client.
As she was viewing the painting, she began to tell a story of her favorite memory of that lake.
A weekend getaway with her cousin, they had made a trip across the lake in a boat that looked just like the one in the painting. She had a dream of someday owning that property on the lake.
She then stated " I just bought that land on the lake ". . . .
Where her summer home is now built. ❤️
