Finished Commission!!

Having collectors enjoy my work so much that they buy it for their homes is rewarding. Having collectors commission works is equally as rewarding if not more so…why…because the collector trusts in my talent, ability and creativity to create a work specifically for them! It is a challenge but so rewarding that I love doing it!

Here is a recently finished commission for a customer who purchased a work and then contacted me for a commission to mark a specific event in his life.

India

It’s November 10, 2017 and I am currently in India. Yes, I said India! The wonderful collector in India has brought me to his country to conceptualize a number of paintings for his home in Lucknow for commissioned works. Those who follow my blog here perhaps will remember my posts about a new collector in India who purchased several paintings from me earlier this year.

This patron of the arts has flown me over to do a number of commissions for his amazing home in Lucknow India. I am analyzing and coordinating with the interior decorator to get the perfect size for the various rooms and large staircase between floors!

This is a challenge but it is also a wonderful opportunity to have my artwork shown in yet another country and a country where abstract art is not as prevalent a style used in India. We have been discussing what he wants in each room and I am taking notes of size and color so when I return to Los Angeles I can create the artwork that will be a monument to the way it was created from start to finish!

Commission Based On Existing Work

I have put together a post about a recent commission I did based on an existing work. Sometimes a collector will see a work that they really really like…just one problem…it’s either sold or the wrong size. What to do? They commission me to do a similar work based on that work! While each of my works is an original fine art abstract and one of a kind, I can create a commissioned work based on my own past work specifically made to the collector’s needs.
