Elena Parashko Gallery has an easy, obligation free policy in the commissioning of custom designed artwork. This is an effective no risk opportunity to have input in the creation of an original work of art to suit your individual tastes and needs.
If you have a photograph you would like painted, then simply email the image and preferred size of the painting to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will provide you with a written quote.
If reference material such as a photo cannot be supplied, then through a consultation process, together we will work out your specific requirements. Factors such as subject matter, mood, colour, size, purpose, painting medium and surface, framing, price range and delivery will be taken into consideration. Once I understand exactly what you are looking for, then a preliminary sketch and/or colour small sample of the proposed artwork will be created giving you an opportunity for further comment and refinement of the image. A quote will also be issued.
After the quote is accepted, then artwork will be completed within the negotiated time frame. Timing will depend upon the size and complexity of the painting as well as my other commitments. I will keep you updated with progress every step of the way. A photograph of the completed painting will be sent to you for final approval before the artwork is varnished. Payment is due upon final approval of the artwork and then it will be shipped. Lay-by is available.
Note: After a quote has been accepted, sample approved and painting begun; if there are any further requests for changes or additions to the artwork, then an additional fee may be charged to cover the cost of extra materials and labour.
Upon viewing of the finished piece, if you are not completely satisfied for any reason, then there is no obligation to purchase the artwork. It will then be offered for sale on the Elena Parashko website or in other galleries. As the artist, I will retain full copyright of the artwork.
