Custom Artwork (Commissions):
Please note that the artwork will be prepared with oil on a stretched cotton or linen canvas. Wooden stretcher bar thickness can be specified when ordering. Some people prefer a canvas on a 3/4″ wooden stretcher bar since it is the easiest to frame. Others prefer a 1-1/2″ to 3″ stretcher bar so that framing could be eliminated all together. However, it is still possible to frame with the thicker stretcher bars. The more modern look today is frameless paintings, meaning with 1-1/2″ to 3″ stretcher bar thickness.
Most artwork today is painted on a cotton canvas. Linen pricing is slightly higher. The old masters painted on linen, jute, burlap and wooden panels.
I also offer the option of doing the painting on aged (fully dried) “Baltic Birch” panels. Baltic Birch is very stable and will last hundreds of years if not thousands if prepared correctly.
Commissioned painting pricing structure using cotton canvas on wooden stretcher bars. Framing is not included in the price. You will need to specify if you would like the painting to be 3/4″ thick (you want to frame it) or 1-1/2 to 1-3/4″ thick (hang as is: frameless).
