Art Commissions: Ordering Process, Terms & Conditions

What Does it Mean to Get Art Commissions?

To commission art is an unique way to have art created specifically for you. Requests for art commissions are accepted all year round.

My work is ideal if you want an original piece for your home, office, shop, or workplace, and it is simple to commission art online.

If you need a specific color to match your décor, size, or finish, I will work with you to determine what will work best for your needs. The attention to detail remains the same whether you commission art for residential or commercial use.

Why Commission an Artist?

The most common reasons for commissioning an artist are to commemorate a special event, to celebrate someone’s life, or to capture a moment in time.

Maybe you are looking for a completely unique personalised gift for a special occasion. Perhaps you have a special day or event coming up, such as a birthday, wedding, or retirement?

If so, a Ren Creative Works bespoke/custom artwork may be just what you are looking for!

Art in the places where you live, work, and play can be extremely uplifting and energising. There is a way for you to purchase commissioned artworks at an affordable price, no matter where you live.

Get One of a Kind, Original Artworks

My painting technique produces one-of-a-kind, original artworks that are difficult to replicate.

My work is, however, available by special commission. If you see something you like on my website, I will aim to produce a very similar custom artwork.

What Should You Consider Before Commissioning Art?

Prior to commissioning art, consider the work’s purpose, size and medium, budget, and timeline.

For example, when selecting colours for a painting, consider the overall appearance of the room.

But do not worry; if you need any assistance, I am here to help.

What are the Costs of Commissioning Art?

It is critical to manage expectations throughout the process in order to achieve the best results.

Because each commission is unique, it is nearly impossible to price accurately unless I know what my clients want.

Prices and time requirements will vary depending on your needs, such as:

  • Size;
  • Level of detail and complexity;
  • Finish (varnish, resin or coloured resin layers);
  • Framed or Unframed.

How Long Do Commissions Take?

If I am working on a larger piece or one with a high level of detail, complexity and skill level needed, the turnaround time will increase. My process is dependent on the paint/varnish/resin drying and curing correctly, and I will not risk my reputation on rushing my artwork.

I cannot in good conscience, take full payment for commissions, but I do request a fifty percent [50%] deposit to hold the next available commission spot.

You can be assured that I will always keep in touch with you and keep you up to date on everything that is being worked on, from the beginning to the end. I will make every effort to respond to all inquiries within twenty four [24] hours.

Furthermore, I believe that listening to the needs of each client is critical in order for me to tailor my services to the expectations of each client.

Ultimately, I want you to be part of this experience and creative journey.
