Another in a series of commissioned oil paintings, on canvas, 45 x 82 inches for a home in Truro, MA. The project was a collaboration between customer and myself, so it was process as well as a lovely and much appreciated end product. To work this large, my studio had to have a few accommodations and since i prefer to work in daylight, had to schedule carefully to paint around the same time each day. It was a very opening experience to work large again, as I have for a long time kept my paintings to 40 inches square since exhibits often limit size. And for a painter who usually paints in private, I was pleased to collaborate and have direct customer input - which is the requirement of any commissioned work.
Your personal collection has more than aesthetic value when you are part of the planning and design. If you are in search of a piece of artwork that truly represents your personal taste and style, you can commission me to paint it for you. I have been painting Cape landscapes and waterscapes for many years and I specialize in oysters shells and historic oyster shacks, vintage doorways, pet portraits and painted furniture, including jelly cabinets and flat screen TV covers.
By commissioning, you acquire something completely unique that fits that special spot in your home or office. Time and trust are the two necessary ingredients - your ideas and my experience can produce customer satisfaction.
To commission a piece of artwork, contact me by phone or email to discuss your project. Please include medium, size and subject and we will set up an appointment to meet in my studio or your home to discuss the details. Many customer testimonials and referrals available.
Art Commission 36 x 48 oil on panel for new home in North Truro. Painting of historic scene, Captain Everett Higgins' Shellfish Company in Wellfleet, later called the 'Spit and Chatter Club' with dragger and rowboats and the 'Lemon Pie ' Cottages on Milton's Hill, which blew down in a hurricane.
The client saw a small version of this painting at Burdick Gallery and requested a similar and larger one for a special wall in his new home.
Orders taken for historic and current Wellfleet and Outer Cape scenes, marshes and wetlands or perhaps a special and personal view of your own choosing.
