How to Commission a Custom Piece of Artwork:

If you have an idea of a particular place or person you would like painted or drawn, I would love to create that custom piece for you. The best way to begin the process is to send me an email at: amyhrdonahue@gmail.com
Information to include in the email:

1. Specify what the subject of the artwork will be (i.e. a photo, location, idea, color scheme, person, etc.) and we can talk about possibilities via email, phone call or in person. If you have a photo reference for the drawing or painting it would be helpful to attach it in the email.

2. Specify an approximate size of the piece of art. Depending on your subject or photo reference I may suggest a size or height-to-width ratio that would be more aesthetically pleasing as a completed piece of art.

Some standard sizes are listed below. Of course if there is another size you have in mind, please let me know.

Small Rectangular
Medium Rectangular
Large Rectangular
Elongated Rectangular
Small Square
Large Square
5×7″ 11×14″ 18×24″ 8×24″ 6×6″ 18×18″
8×10″ 12×16″ 20×24″ 12×24″ 10×10″ 24×24″
9×12″ 16×20″ 24×30″ 12×36″ 12×12″

3. Specify the medium you would like. I work in both pencil (black and white) on paper and oil paint (color) on canvas.

Pencil drawing
Oil painting

8x10, graphite (sold)
8×10, graphite on bristol board
"The Starin Farm" 24x36, oil
24×36, oil on canvas

4. Specify when you need the painting completed. I will let you know if I think I can complete the piece in that time frame.

Price: I prefer to know the specifications of a project before quoting a price. There is always a base price per square inch that I use to calculate the price. Other factors that play into the price are medium (oil paintings typically cost more than pencil drawings), complexity, number of faces (in the case of multiple portraits in one piece), and of course the size of the artwork.
