Commission FAQ

How much is it to commission an original?

Pricing is based on the cost of materials and the amount of time put into a project.

Things that affect how long a painting takes include the size, color pallete, level of detail, and sometimes, the species. I work with each client to discuss options and come up with a future piece of art that everyone loves.

Current commission rates range from $250 - $5,000+ with additional costs for travel, live-painting, speaking, and video/content creation.

What do you paint with?

I primarily paint with oils.

But I also like to use charcoal, ink, watercolors, and acrylics.

Can you paint from my picture?

I prefer to work from my library of photography if possible.

Sometimes, I work from a client's photos if I can't get a reference photo. (e.g... a once-in-a-lifetime moment or an animal that is no longer alive.)

Do you only paint animals?

I can paint other things, but I prefer to paint wildlife related subjects.

I love telling a good story through painting. I'm happy to customize your commission with details to help tell that story.

Does it come with a frame?

I like to frame my work with reclaimed hardwoods and driftwood.

Framing can be included in the project budget. Artwork can also be shipped ready-to-hang without a frame on a gallery-wrapped canvas or cradled wood panel. If shipping is a hassle, a painting on un-stretched canvas can be shipped to you or your local frame shop.

Art is more than a thing that hangs on the wall, it's a powerful tool for change. It can evoke emotions in a way few things can. Just read what collectors have to say when they receive something from the Davison Art Company in the mail.
