This listing is for a custom wedding, anniversary or couples painting on a 24x36 inch professionally stretched canvas. The style is contemporary impressionism and the goal is to capture the feel of a moment, the light, the forms, the essence of a moment but not a photo realistic rendering.

I do work in lots of sizes!

Let’s create the art piece that you will never find in a store. This listing is for an original acrylic painting on canvas created just for you. Paintings tell love stories, family stories, memories of special places and times. I’ve had the privilege of translating all sorts of stories onto canvas. Please drop me a note if you’re curious. I’m happy just to talk to you about what your ideas are.

WHAT'S IT MADE OF?
I use only Golden Heavy Body Artist’s Acrylics and 1 3/8 inch gallery wrap canvas with 10 0z artist quality canvas. There are no staples on the sides and I fully paint the edges so the canvas can be hung without a frame. When it is finished I apply a professional grade UVLS varnish to seal and protect your painting from UV rays and air borne particles, making it easy to clean with a soft damp cloth.

HOW DOES THIS PAINTING PROCESS WORK?

Once we have a game plan for what you want, and you've either paid for your art outright or made your first payment I'll create a private online album for you which will be home to all the photos along the way. The first ones will be line sketches to see what composition you like best. They will be followed by 3 color sketches to give you an idea of where we can go with the painting. Once you've chosen one, I'll get started on your canvas and you will get pictures at 50%, 70% and 90% of the way complete. You can ask for changes at any point, but I put those points in as easy checkpoints, to let you see how your painting is developing. Once I have your final approval I will put a UVLS varnish on your painting to protect it from UV rays and air borne particles. That takes 1 week to dry fully and then it will be time to ship the painting.

The whole process takes 6-8 weeks but I have also done rush orders for clients as needed. Canada Post shipping is standard, but Fedex and UPS options are available, please ask for a quote.

The photos above are examples only - since this is a custom painting based on your photos your painting will be different.


OK, I'M SOLD! NOW WHAT?

Option One:
Click on the link for the size of painting you want and put it in your cart. Check out and you are all set. I'll send you an email and we can start the conversation about your painting.

Option Two:
Got questions? Are you interested in purchasing through a payment plan, instead of all at once? No problem! Send me a note here on Etsy with your questions and ideas. I am happy to spit-ball ideas with you, and work things out before you buy. When you are ready, you choose what size of painting you want, how many people will be in it and I will make a custom listing for you to purchase here. Payment plans are typically divided into three parts. Part One - the first third of the payment is due before I do any sketches for your art. Part Two- the next installment is due when I post your half way pictures to your private album. (I'll create the listing for the second installment and email you the link.) The Third and final payment is due when you have given me your final approval of the project, prior to me shipping it to you. We'll use the same method of creating a listing here on Etsy for all the payments.

WHOA, WAIT A MINUTE! WHAT'S UP WITH THE SHIPPING?

I know, shipping art safely is pricey - especially large art on stretcher bars. When the canvas is stretched, it exposes your artwork to the possibility of being punctured by careless postal machines and who knows what else on its' journey from me to you. So in order to keep it safe, I purchase large boxes and different types of packing material to make sure that there are no hole or damage to the corners of your art when it gets to you. Weight + Size = $$$ shipping costs.

But I have a solution - if you would like me to remove the canvas from the stretchers, roll it with care and mail it to you there is a DRAMATIC change in cost. To get the canvas put back on stretcher bars you can take it down to your local custom framer or have a go at doing it yourself. Hello, Youtube. :)

I WANT MY CANVAS ROLLED! Well, Ok! Click here for those shipping options.
