Commissioning a paintingElizabeth Whelan accepts commissions for paintings of all types, including portraits, landscapes, still life, and maritime themes. Possible occasions for a personally commissioned painting include birthdays and holiday gifts, to commemorate a special occasion or remember a special place, to honor an individual.
The process is simple and starts with a conversation by phone or email to discuss the project, timeline, and cost. The price for a commissioned painting can vary greatly from one subject or size to the next depending on the request, so send Elizabeth your information and she will be able to give you a good estimate.
After you decide on the details of the commission, a 50% deposit is required upfront with the remainder due upon delivery. Elizabeth will create a small color study to show you composition and general color scheme before starting on the final painting. Paintings can be delivered in person in the Martha's Vineyard and Dartmouth area.
A commissioned painting is one of the most unique gifts a person can receive. Share the pleasure of owning an original work of art.
