PotakPaintsArt's Shop Announcement

YOUR COMMISSION REQUEST LINE IS NOW OPEN!!!!

STARTING SUNDAY, MAY 16, 2015, .. i WILL BE TAKING REQUESTS FOR WHATEVER YOU MIGHT LIKE TO SEE PAINTED, WHETHER ITS A FAVORITE SCENE, VACATION SPOT, YOUR FAVORITE LOCALE, OR ANYTHING ELSE YOU HAVE IN A PHOTO, OR A SUBJECT THAT MIGHT INTEREST YOU, or AN REQUEST THAT YOU MIGHT NOT HAVE AS A PHOTO, BUT CAN PASS ON THE MENTAL IMAGE OF WHAT YOU SEE, .. OR WHATEVER ELSE THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEE TRANSLATED INTO PAINT.
(I DO NOT PAINT LIKENESSES, AS IN PEOPLE, PET OR CHILDREN PORTRAITS.)
HERE'S HOW IT WORKS.
FIRST COME, FIRST ON THE LIST.
I WILL BE TAKING REQUESTS.
THE FIRST ONE i RECEIVE WILL BE ATTENDED TO AS I CAN GET TO THEM.
UNLIKE A REGULAR COMMISSSION, ITS COMPLETED IN THE TIME I CAN GET TO IT, NOT AS A DEADLINE, .. ALTHOUGH YOU MAY EXPRESS A "HOPED FOR TIME" THAT I WILL TAKE UNDER CONSIDERATION.
I WILL WORK ON A SUBJECT THAT YOU HAVE REQUESTED IN THE ORDER OF THAT REQUESTS THAT I RECEIVE.
WHEN i HAVE DONE A PARTICULAR REQUEST, .. I WILL POST THE FINISHES WORK ON ETSY AS "ON RESERVE" FOR 5 DAYS. IF YOU LIKE WHAT YOU SEE, YOU MAY PURCHASE IT.
IF NOT, i WILL TAKE IT OFF OF RESERVER AFTER 5 DAYS AND PUT IT UP FOR SALE TO ALL COLLECTORS WHO MAY LIKE TO HAVE IT.
I WILL ONLY WORK UP TO 11 X 14" AND ON HEAVY WEIGHT ARCHIVAL PAPER
I CANNOT AFFORD TO TAKE RISKS ON COSTLY CANVAS AND FRAMES ON A SPECULATIVE ENDEAVOR. YOU MAY ASK, BUT IT ALL DEPENDS ON MY STATE OF SUPPLIES AND ABILITY TO MEET THAT REQUEST.
TO REQUEST A WORK OF ART FROM ME, CONVO ME,
1. LEAVE YOUR NAME
2. YOUR REQUEST,
3. AND SEND ME YOUR IMAGE OR CONCEPT
WHEN THE WORK IS COMPLETED I WILL POST IT, ALONG WITH ITS PRICE
4. YOU HAVE THE OPTION TO BUY IT, OR NOT (IT WILL GO UP FOR SALE TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC IF NOT)

REMEMBER THAT WHEN YOU REQUEST ANYTHING, YOU ARE ASKING THE ARTIST TO EXPRESS THE WORK IN THE MANNER IN WHICH THAT ARTIST IS KNOWN FOR AND TRUE TO HIS STYLE. IN OTHER WORDS, IF YOU WANT A PICASSO, YOU SHOULD NOT REQUEST RENOIR TO PAINT YOUR POT OF GERANIUMS. SO IF YOU WANT A POTAK, YOU WILL GET A POTAK. NOT A BOB ROSS OR A NORMAN ROCKWELL.
I hope this works to all of your favor, as I think it might to mine as well. I will see how this works and take it from there. This is will be in a trial phase for me, as I do not know how or if this will actually work out. But, it worth a try. ---
I hope this works for you as well.
Thank you,
Russ Potak - artist

Together they make up my Etsy gallery of original paintings. My prices are fair and affordable, and my work is well known.

They come with creative passion, and sometimes go off to buyers while the paint is still drying.
Thanks for visiting my gallery here on Etsy, and I hope you make one of my paintings, one of yours!

An artist by design, I do what I know how to do and have always done. And that is to paint. Its what I do. Birds fly, fish swim, and I paint. I paint with a passion, and carefree abandon. I use my art to paint my feelings about what I experience and feel, rather than just what I see. For me, its a form of visual communication, and I speak it using my brush and paints. My art is my vehicle for that. I hope you enjoy it, and make one of my paintings yours!

I hold a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from the University of Massachusetts in Painting

My work is collected by hundreds of people worldwide and thousands in the U.S.

My paintings have been purchased by NBC Universal studios and have appeared in episodes of Parenthood as part of the set designs.

I have shown extensively both in solo exhibitions and group showings in the northeast, and southwest

I have also been known to appear and exhibit at art fairs, coffee shops and even on location near a lake, harbor, seacoast. meadow, or city street, with my easel and paints.

I have been a painter all of my life from the get go, ... no batteries needed.
