Commissioning your own Original Painting
Commissioning a painting is one of those things that many people would love to do, but shy away from, as there is a mistaken perception that it’s a difficult process. Nothing could be further from the truth. For those that do go ahead, it’s usually a really enjoyable experience, as there’s always a unique and personal work of art to show as a result of the exercise. It could be a portrait or favourite landscape for yourself, or a surprise gift for a loved one on a special occasion. As a corporate or sporting retirement present for example, a unique and thoughtfully commissioned painting is always greatly appreciated by the recipient, and would be a treasured keepsake in any club, home or place of work. A commissioned painting is always a good idea as an auction item for your favourite charity or sports club fundraiser also.
The process gets underway by simply emailing me at info@irishsportsart or calling me at 087 – 416 55 27 for a personal response without obligation. Together we can then discuss ideas to produce a treasured conversation piece and work of art. Costs vary, and depend on many factors, such as the level of detail, size, level of preparation required etc. A commission can be negotiated to match the amount a client may wish to spend, and in this mass-produced age, few gifts possess the enduring value and prestige of a thoughtfully commissioned original painting that will last a lifetime and beyond.
Please note, that while much of my work is sports related, it’s not exclusively so, and I enjoy painting all types of subject matter. It’s my job to make the process easy and enjoyable for anyone considering a commission.
