Commission a painting
Would you like a unique, original painting made as a precious gift to mark a special occasion? Or perhaps you have a particular wall space at home or in the office that seems empty? A commission costs so much less than you think, and the pleasure of having something made especially for you will last a lifetime.
Contact Jane to discuss what you want; the subject matter, the reasons, the palette, the dimensions, who it’s for and as well as deadlines and how your budget. Let me organise framing for you, then all you have to do it hang it and enjoy it.
Commissions usually cost anywhere between £150 to £400 depending on complexity, size, time taken and so on. Tell me what your budget is and I’ll do my best to make it happen.
Some commissions include:
Derek had seen a painting I’d recently made but had already found a home. I hate to disappoint, so I said I’d paint something similar for him. I warned him it wouldn’t be exactly the same, and he was fine with this. He loved it and gave it to someone special in his life.
Doug from Wiltshire wanted me to paint a different view of the landscape around Cherhill where he lives. It was a surprise gift for his wife. He said: “She really can’t stop looking at it – I keep catching her standing in front of it!” Turned out alright, didn’t it?
White horse brown hare
Lori emailed me. She’d seen a painting I had already made – and sold – and wanted something similar. So I made this one for her. Lori said: “I absolutely LOVE it!!!!! It’s perfect. I love the hare in the front, the expression is wonderful. And the moon! I’m so excited to get it and hang it up!! Thank you, thank you.”
Tristan and the toco toucan
Colin called me. He knew I loved to paint birds. “We just came back from holiday in Brazil where my son had a close encounter with a toco toucan. Could you make a portrait of him with one on his arm?”
Pebbles from heaven
Brian asked me to make a painting of pebbles for his girlfriend who was mad about stones and collecting pebbles. “Just some pebbles, the way you do them” was the brief.
No problem at all.
Hannah’s Ridgeway walk
“My 13-year-old daughter and I walked the Ridgeway this summer. Can you make a painting for her of our journey?” Yes of course. Toby!
