Can I request a custom or commissioned painting?

Yes, absolutely. R Schoeffel eagerly accepts commission requests. The artist will work closely with the customer to create a painting that matches perfectly with their home or office décor.

How does buying a commission work?

First, contact Renae directly with a commission painting request.

I will then contact the collector and discuss flow, color preferences and size desired.

Based upon this information, I will then provide the collector with a price quote. This quote is for the painting only and does not include the price of shipping.

A 30% non-refundable deposit is required to begin the work.

After the painting is approximately 90% completed, the artist will then provide the collector with an image of the painting for their approval and comments. This is also a good time for customers to discuss any changes or additions desired.

Once the collector has approved the painting, the 70% balance will be required prior to final touches and shipment.

If, however, the collector does not like the painting result, there is no obligation on the customer’s part to purchase the remaining 70% of the balance due.
