Art Commission Agreement

(form below)

Commissioning is the process by which an Artist creates a work of art on a Client’s request. Requesting a custom, commissioned painting (or series of paintings) provides the unique opportunity for a Client to own artwork specifically created for them.


It’s important to remember that commissioning abstract (non-representational) art is unique. Clients must allow for creative freedom and gage expectations accordingly.

Commission requests must be within the parameters of the technique fluid acrylics. When requesting a commission, you will need to define your desired color palette and size. The Artist will work with you to color match (if desired) and to best understand your wishes.

*A nonrefundable deposit of 50% of the selling price is required before the Artist will start the project. The remaining amount is due upon completion and approval of the work.


Turnaround time for commission work will vary. Please coordinate with the Artist to discuss the details of your custom piece and to agree on a timeframe that is reasonable for both parties.

Right of Refusal

It is the intent of this agreement that the Artist create artwork(s) for the Client that the Client will purchase. However, if after the work is completed, the Client does not wish to purchase any or all of the work, the Client may refuse, on an individual basis, each created artwork. In that case, the Artist will retain the refused artwork and the nonrefundable deposit, free of any claims or interests of the Client and the Client will owe no additional fees to the Artist. A refusal will not affect the purchase price of other created artworks in this project.

Delivery Options

The client will be responsible for covering the cost of shipping, if applicable. Please coordinate with the Artist ahead of time to discuss delivery options. Pick-up available within the state of Michigan.

Artist reserves the common-law copyright to all works commissioned by Collector that are created by the Artist, including all reproduction rights and the right to claim statutory copyright. No work may be reproduced by Collector without the prior written approval of Artist.
