Commissions

Can I Make Prints Of An Original Or Commission I purchase?


No. I retain full reproduction rights of my work, unless you purchase a licensing agreement that crealy states what and where you plan to distribute my art. Please view my Licensing Page for more information if you are interested in selling products with Savvy Palette art on them.




Can I Cancel A Commission Before Completion?


Yes, but you will loose your 50% deposit. This deposit covers materials bought for said commission and the work I have completed up to that point.




Why Does It Take 5-7 Weeks For A Commission?


Typically I have more then a couple projects I am working on at the same time. So depending on when you order a commission will determine how long it will take to complete. Best thing to do if you are seriously considering a comissioned piece is to book your request by paying the 50% deposit to get in on my schedule.




What Are Your Payment Terms?


For commissions I require a 50% deposit to put your custom request on my calendar. The remaining 50% will be do upon completion. but before official delivery of the final art.




What Form Of Payments Do You Accept?


I accept PayPal and most major credit cards. I invloice via email and this invoice can easily be paid with a credit card or PayPal.





Prints

What Are Giclées?


Giclée is a neologism coined in 1991 by printmaker Jack Duganne for fine art digital prints made on inkjet printers. The name was originally applied to fine art prints created on a modified Iris printer in a process invented in the late 1980s. It has since been used loosely to mean any fine-art printing, usually archival, printed by inkjet. It is often used by artists, galleries, and print shops to suggest high quality printing.




What Does Limited Edition Mean?


An issue of something collectible (such as books, art prints, or medals) that is advertised to be limited to a relatively small number of copies.

Journal


Original Art

Why Are Your Originals So Expensive?


I put a lot of time and effort into my originals and they are one-of-a-kind. I have studied and dedicated my life to being a professional artist and after many years I am able to create the pieces that I create today. Each of my pieces averages about 30-40 hours of painting time plus around 10 hours of research and study of the subjects I am painting. I also have to cover my over head expenses like any other business such as my canvas, paints, brushes and other materials. I also have to pay high commission fees when my work sales via galleries. These fees typically run between 30-50% of my asking price.




What Type Of Canvas Do You Paint On?


All my original work is painted on professional grade gallery wrapped canvas. I prefer to work on larger canvas size (36 x 48 x 1.5 in.) as it is easier for me to be more expressive in my brush strokes and palette knife marks.




Where Can Your Originals Be Found?


I have work in private and public displays in Oregon, Arizona, Oklahoma, Idaho, and Colorado.
