Painting the Scenes You Love
Dennis specializes in custom paintings in both watercolor and oil paints.
The fun of custom painting is sharing the painting process with the patron, from start to completion. Every painting, not unlike a fine sculpture, has a life of its own. From the patron's original conceptual ideas for the scene the patron loves and the creative process the painting reveals itself in the emotional response which transcends the original idea. Sometimes photos are essential, however a painting goes well beyond the click of a camera. It is not unusual to do a Custom "in open air" painting which of course would be subject to the Patron's acceptance.
Communication is always important in the creative process. The size, location, lighting and colors of the home or business envioronment are critical when thinking about the overall design of the space and the emotional response desired. Progress Photos from conception through the painting process can be emailed between the Patron and the artist. It is not unusual for the artist to go thru hundreds of reference photos or subject photos taken by the Artist in his travels or on site that could be beneficial. The cost of the Custom Paintings shown vary between $300 for a 11x14 framed watercolor or oil painting of a landscape or cabin, to $7500 for a large gallery wrapped canvas oil painting. Most fall somewhere in between and are somewhat dependant on subject matter. But just to give you an idea, a typical 16x20 framed painting would be about $700 and a 36x48 or similar custom size around $4600.

Here is how it works:
The artist agreement is simple.
- Completion time will be determined along with a price and payment schedule.
- The artist will paint the subject matter in his best way. The artist will only agree to paint what is esthetically and morally suitable to the artist.
- The artist will email and get client participation and approvals thru the painting process.
Patron references and testimonials are available.
Feel free to contact the artist for a preliminary price estimate. Look forward to hearing from you.
