I WORK WITH:

oils on archival paper
oils on archival board
gouaches on archival board
other choices available
If you have an idea where
you want to place the artwork, how big a space will it be? Remember
that it will need space around it so it doesn't bump the walls
or ceilings of its surroundings.
Is it inside or outside?
This will determine what materials to use to ensure the longevity
of your new artwork.
Will it be exposed or protected
from weather, wear and vandalism? This determines the finish
I use in order to keep it from winter or weather harm.
I suggest you be very specific as to your budget requirements
so you avoid either over-spending or inability to meet payments.
A piece of art can take anywhere from one week to months to complete,
depending on the materials used, the complexity of design or
installation, and any number of other factors.
I strive to meet schedules
as timely as possible, and if I cannot, always communicate with
you and make new arrangements suitable to us both.

the idea of the piece
approximate time for completion
You make a NON-REFUNDABLE deposit of one-third of the final,
total agreed-upon price
