A commission is a joint effort between the artist and the client. The size and cost would depend upon what you and Greg decide. It is easy to do preliminary plans via e-mail. You can send digital photos of your subject, some overall shots and also close-ups of details. Greg will either speak to you on the telephone or make an appointment in his studio, if possible. After you make basic decisions about the painting, he may ask you to take more pictures at the best time of day and the details he needs.
This is an excellent way to preserve and share memories of a family home, business, or favorite travel spot. Also organizations and companies often commission paintings and have reproductions made to use as gifts to customers, retiring employees, or donors.
