Custom Work

I love custom work.
Normally when I paint, I paint for myself. I create what I want, for me. I hope people like it... but if not, that's okay. Because it's for me.

Custom paintings are challenging... I am painting something for someone else. If they don't like it, then I have failed.

I think that's why I like it so much, because I like a challenge.

Another reason I LOVE custom paintings is because they have meaning to the person requesting it. I have done paintings for weddings, children's portraits, pet portraits. Even favorite animal paintings. These types of paintings are very fun and meaningful for me to do. It lets me be a part of someone's life for a little while... and leave them with a work of art that means something to them.

Here are some custom paintings I have done in the last few months.
 


I am hoping to start accepting more custom work this July.
I currently working on a very large custom piece for a gallery in New York.
