How Do I Commission Artwork?

Hey! Let’s paint something just for you!

To start, contact me via email (ritaortloff[at]gmail[dot]com) to start the process.

I’ll need to know what size canvas you’re interested in, and would love some screenshots of my paintings that appeal to you. Although I cannot duplicate a past painting, I can do my best to replicate the same basic design elements. Next, we’ll choose a color palette. Sometimes we’ll work with the color palette of a previous painting. But most of the time my clients send photos of the space where the painting will hang and I will come up with a color palette to suit the space. Once your painting is on my easel, I’ll email you to let you know I’m getting started.  Then we’ll communicate once the painting is mostly done so you can give feedback and I can make adjustments. It’s fun! Promise!

Pricing; The cost of your painting is determined by your canvas size and subject matter. See listings below.

Payment: I’ll collect 1/2 up front, and the remaining 1/2 upon completion. I accept PayPal, personal checks, or you may pay with a credit card via Etsy.

Shipping: If you choose to have your painting shipped, I will estimate shipping and include those charges with your final invoice. Shipping is typically less than $100 depending on canvas size. Note: 48”x60” canvases must be crated and shipping is cost prohibitive. I will get a crate estimate if you wish.

Wait Time: I typically complete paintings in 4-6 weeks
