How to Commission a Painting

If you would like to commission an original painting such as a portrait, animal painting, landscape, cityscape, or any other theme; there are a few steps to follow.

First, contact Katrie by sending an email to fineart@katrie.com with information about what type of painting you are looking for. If you would like a painting of a specific person, animal, place, etc, it is often necessary to provide several photographs to the artist on which the painting will be based. Please specify what size painting you would like. Also include any deadline and budget constraints you may have.

Katrie will then contact you to request any additional information. She will provide a detailed proposal for the commissioned painting which will include a price. If you choose to commission Katrie to create your painting, a contract will be provided along with the final price which will be split into an initial payment and final payment. Work will begin after receiving the initial payment. Upon completion of the painting, the final payment is due. After receiving the final payment, the painting will be delivered.

Here is an example of a commissioned painting of Frank Sinatra.
