COMMISSIONED ART FEES
Missy Reno Smith is a professional artist. Many hours go into each painting and sculpture she creates. We are including some info about Missy’s base fees here so that you are aware of the approximate investment before signing up for her Art Commission Wait List.
We know that collecting fine art is not something everyone can easily do. To make this easier, Missy offers several payment plans and she also offers PayPal as a payment processor option which offers additional payment plan options.
Art Commission Fees
During this 45 minute video consultation, you and Missy will create a plan for the artwork (or jewelry item). You will discuss the art medium, subject, style, size, and other factors that will help determine the total cost of the artwork. After this consultation, a quote will be drawn up based on your choices.
The consultation fee covers Missy’s time and is non-refundable. However, the full amount will be put towards the cost of the artwork if you sign the contract and pay the required 50% down payment within one year of your consultation date.
Painting Base Fees*
Painting fees are determined by the Art Medium, Style, Complexity, and Size. The base fee is $1,800 for a Watercolor or Digital Painting, $2,500 for an Acrylic or Mixed-Media Painting, and $3,000 for an Oil Painting. These base fees represent the smallest painting size offered (25 linear inches, 11″ x 14″ for example) with a simple background.
