Many people dream of owning a piece of art that reminds them of something or someplace special that they can enjoy forever!
Below are some frequently asked questions about the commission process:
Do you paint scenes or subjects upon request?
Yes! I do commissioned work - paintings in oil, acrylic or pastel of subjects you chose. These subjects would be completed to your specifications and painted in my personal style. I have painted many subjects including landscapes, seascapes, houses, animals, pets, scenes which include generic figures but I do not paint portraits.
Can you paint from pictures or photos?
Yes! Digital photos are preferred with a resolution of at least 300dpi and in .jpeg format. (We can discuss this if you have other formats). A photograph must be at least 4 " x 6". All pictures must be clear, in focus and show trues colors of the subject. Multiple photos is desired to help with composition and clarifying detail. Photos taken on a sunny day when the sun is low in the sky and shadows are long (early morning and late afternoon/evening) typically are best (depending on the subject).
What is the Commission Process?
The commissioning process is simple. Here's an overview of the process:
What is the price of a commissioned painting?
Pricing is based on the complexity of the request, size and painting medium. But here are some examples: 36" x 18" Landscape painting - $2500, 24" x 18" Seascape painting - $1500, 14" x 11" Wildlife painting - $600 (These do not include framing).

Do you have any comments from previous customers?
Yes....please see below:
"This painting was an idea my husband had been dreaming about for years, it is a picture of his home city with the forefront being a well known landmark of the city. We were shown Mark’s other pieces and were blown away by his talent. Thankfully Mark was willing to accept the challenge of recreating a photo my husband loved which involved many details and different scaling. Mark captures every detail perfectly, it is a truly breathtaking painting that will be displayed in our home forever." - Chrissy Gudak Charlton, NY
"I remember the exact moment when my boyfriend and I took the picture of my dad’s tractor in the snow at Thanksgiving. At the time we just thought it would be a cool picture to send to my dad so he could use it for his phones wallpaper or something. But then we got to thinking how amazing it would be if we could make this into something other than a picture, and we knew just the person to ask. Mark turned this regular old picture of a tractor into an amazing, beautiful, one of a kind painting. The details were perfect. It was like you were looking at it in real life. Giving it to my parents on Christmas Day and seeing their faces recognize what the painting was will be one of my best memories". - Samantha Grippo - Cascade, Iowa
