You will get an invoice confirming information discussed about the commission and requesting a 50% deposit. Once your deposit is received your commission is official and the painting begins. Turnaround time is usually within two months but could be longer. If desired, you can see a photo of the piece in process at the mid-way or three-quarter point to completion, with discussion about next steps. Upon completion, you get a photo of your finished painting and one round of changes to be made if needed. If everyone is happy, the remaining 50% is due and the painting will be yours.
Framing is available for an additional cost. I often use wood floater frames, which subtly highlight the painting as if it is floating within the frame. (Painting pictured here is in a silver floater frame).

"I purchased a painting from Stefanie that is hanging in my family room. She is a very talented artist. I love looking at the brushstrokes and layers as well as bright colors that compliment our home. Stefanie is extremely professional and she and I ended up developing a friendship as a result of working together. I can't recommend her enough!"

"Stefanie, I love the painting! It came out so well. Exactly what I had in mind (actually even better than I was picturing). Definitely no changes needed. I know my wife will love it. It was great to work with you on this. Thank you."

"As a longtime fan of Stefanie’s work, I was so excited to commission a small piece for a friend who had just lost her mother. Stefanie listened to my thoughts and created a special painting which was exactly what I was hoping for: a little floral work that lifted my friend’s spirits. Thank you, Stefanie!"
