I am frequently asked...about commissioned pieces of art or, in other words, works produced for an individual collector. On occasion, I have produced commissioned pieces of rail theme paintings. Prices on commissioned pieces vary and are dependent upon size and complexity.
Typically a commissioned piece begins with a request for a specific subject from the buyer. This can be as simple as an idea or as detailed as a photograph of the desired subject matter. Once the subject has been identified, a simple pencil sketch will be drawn depicting the composition and overall orientation of the finished piece. Final payment is due upon receipt and acceptance by the buyer. If not accepted, a refund will be issued to the buyer provided that the original is returned undamaged (less any shipping and handling charges and a 10% restocking fee). The artist retains all rights to the painting, including but not limited to, reproduction of limited edition prints and publication rights.
