Traditionally, commissions are ways of creating portraits of various things, objects, or non-representational interpretations of what a visual artist may create for the patron.
Sometimes, objects or items that are meaningful and important for the patron are often the theme or subject matter or the work being commissioned.
Historically, commissions are what most artists made a living on. Artist rely on patrons to give them the opportunity to create a work or works of art for them so that the art can be a keepsake for a lifetime. The portrait created by Amy Sherald of the former First Lady of the United States of America, Michelle Obama, was a commission. The abstract expressionistic / figurative expressionist portrait by Elaine de Koonin of former President, John F. Kennedy was a commission. Throughout history and to this very day, artist continue to earn a living creating their interpretations of various topics and thematic concepts from patrons. My commissions range from interpretive portraits, festival posters to my patron’s personal stories. There is no commission that is not worthy of creating. Large or small and of course a range in price.
Range in price from:
1k - 5k
5k - 10k
10k - 20k
20k - 30k
30k - 40k
40k - 50k

As an artist, it is always good to give back. As a wedding gift to my friends in this picture, I painted a portrait of the two lovely couple using the Fauvist style during their wedding reception way back in 2010. That was the first time in the last time I actually did that for anyone. This was truly a special gift. Afterwards, I gave them the painting as a gift! #painting #fauvism #friends #artist #friendship #wedding #love #fauvism #caring #excited #lovely #lovers #tampafl #tampaflorida #ligel #2010 #badmofo
