Open for Commissions
How do you envision your next custom piece of art?
This is your opportunity to choose the subject, size, materials, colors, and style. Send a message with your thoughts and ideas, and we will get back to you with pricing and options to make your dream a reality.
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.
What do clients have to say?

"Tim, it's INCREDIBLE! I'll send a picture once we get it properly mounted, but it fits perfectly and is the most amazing feature piece 😍"
"Hello! The painting arrived tonight. I absolutely love it! Thank you so much! The colors are perfect and you really captured his face and eyes well. It is exactly what I was hoping for!!"

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.
