Do you have a great idea for a painting? I’d love to talk with you!
STEP 1. Let’s begin with a conversation. I want to get to know you and what makes you happy. Follow this with a discussion of your painting idea, including the location, time-of-day, canvas size, colors, timeframe, and any other important details.
STEP 2. I make it a practice to begin my paintings on-location, beginning with sketches and photos in case of rain. Sometimes I’ll ask you to approve a black and white sketch before painting, and sometimes not. This depends on you, the subject matter, location and timeframe.
STEP 3. While your painting is in progress at my studio, you are invited to stop by and take a look! Your comments and feedback are especially important to me as I add the finishing touches.
STEP 4. Your painting is finished, framed, and ready for pick-up at my studio
