15. I am interested in commissioning a piece of art but have never done so. Where do I begin?
Commissioning art is a fun and unique experience. No matter if you are a first-time art buyer or a seasoned collector, we do our best to make the process easy and enjoyable. The following five FAQs will give you an overview of the process. If you have an idea for a special artwork, send us an email at spotlightartstudios@gmail.com or give us a call and we can discuss the next steps.

 

16. How much will it cost to commission an artwork?
Commissioned pieces are priced based on the size, medium, and complexity of the piece, and the artist's sales history. Commissioned artworks will be more than comparable pieces in the artist's portfolio in terms of size and medium. This is due to the fact that the artist must spend time to consult with you about the project, create any necessary preliminary sketches, and take time away from their normal art practice to create your commission.


 

  • Do I pay for commissioned artwork before or after the piece is complete? May I return a piece I've commissioned?
  • 17. Do I pay for commissioned artwork before or after the piece is complete? May I return a piece I've commissioned?
    Before the artist begins working on your commission, we take a 50% non-refundable deposit. This assures that the artist will be paid for their time and materials. Once the piece is complete, we will send you a high resolution image of the work. If you accept it, we will charge your credit card the remaining 50% and ship the piece to you. If for some reason you are not entirely satisfied when you see the image, we can work with the artist to make small changes. There are no returns once you take possession of the art.

  • 19. When commissioning an artwork, can I have the artist work from a photo? What if i don't have a photo for them to work from?
    Photographs are great reference material and preferred for portrait works when commissioning an artwork. If you don't have a photograph, it's not a problem. You will have the opportunity to speak one-on-one with the artist to describe exactly what you are looking for.
  •  
  • 20. When commissioning an artwork, what kind of contact will I have with the artist?
    Before the artist begins working on your project, you will have a one on one consultation with the artist to explain exactly what you'd like. Once the artist begins working, we will update you as the piece progresses from initial sketch to finished masterpiece. The artist is always available to answer questions about your piece and the process, and we can arrange any meetings you'd like to have with the artist along the way.
