Thanks for considering me for commissioning a special piece of artwork! Here’s how it all works…
The Raven & The Sunflower
“To this day, your painting is my wife’s favorite anniversary gift.”
Chevy SS Nova
“He loved it, and has it hanging in our living room.”
What is a commision?
An original piece of artwork that didn’t exist until I was asked to create it for you.
Commissioning artwork is a great way to give a gift of a special memory: a pet, first car, favorite flower, a vacation, a favorite place…the possibilities are endless. A commissioned watercolor would be your original idea we would collaborate on. Together we can create something completely unique for a special occasion, a special person (including you!), or that special wall in your home or office.
How do we start?
WITH A CHAT. Either in person, on the phone, electronically… We’ll talk so I understand your specific needs and your preferences. That said, any piece of work will still reflect my style which is not Realism (just in case you hadn’t already figured that out…LOL). These initial consultations are free even if I think another artist’s work better suits your needs.
Can I see some past commissions?
I want to do it, what’s next?
DEPOSIT. Make a non-refundable deposit toward your commission to get on my wait list. You can make your deposit online here, or send it via PayPal to chris(at)chrisblevinswatercolors(dot)com. Until I receive your deposit, I won’t begin your commissioned artwork. The remainder is due when I complete the painting.
How long does it take?
IT DEPENDS. I’ve had some take as little as few days, and others up to several months. If you have a hard due date (like a birthday or anniversary), let’s be sure to talk about this so I have a firm deadline to work towards.
What about cost?
- 8 x 10 $175 (Deposit – $50)
- 11 x 14 $350 (Deposit – $100)
- 16 x 20 $450 (Deposit – $125)
- 22x30 $800 (Deposit – $250)
Other sizes available; ask me for a quote. More than one pet in a portrait, add $25. Plus sales tax and shipping, if applicable.

Oh, boy. What happens if I don’t like it?
You can choose to not purchase the commissioned artwork. In that case, I keep refused artwork and the non-refundable deposit and you don’t owe any additional fees to me. So far, this has never happened.
