 Commissioning An Artwork
Buying an original work of art from an artist is an exciting personal experience and commissioning is even more so:you are asking an artist whose work you can relate to, feel a connection with and even love to create an original piece for you.Selecting a painting you want to own or offer to someone dear carries lots of meanings and emotions.It’s a personal thing that shows care, attention and consideration.That’s why commissioning a piece of artwork that takes you back to a particular place once visited, to visually represent something heartfelt or to mark a unique occasion such as a wedding, a significant birthday or an anniversary is so special.

A painting is a one of a kind physical object you can look at and touch and that will transport you…time and time again when you feel like it. We have worked with Collectors on many commissions, and it’s a great way to enable collectors and interior designers to acquire works they love. With good communication on all sides, and if the artist creates a work that fits the specifications originally agreed upon, the process is smooth and beneficial to both artists and collectors!



The Commission Process
The commission process is straight forward.This is how I work.Initially, please contact me by email at johnlijobluefish@gmail.com to tell me what you’re looking for.This free service is to have a chat about what you have in mind to help both of us decide if I can create a painting you’ll be delighted with.Once you’re happy about what we’ve talked about then we can take it further and formalise your request. I email you an agreement stating what we discussed, a quote and a suggested completion date.Once you agree with the information provided, you can return the signed contract with a down payment. Only then can I start your painting. For me as an artist, it’s very important that you are delighted with the finished piece. I do this by communicating with you throughout the process and emailing images of work in progress.
