to commission a painting
To commission a painting is special. Whereas most of us will buy a generic artwork in the form of a print or card at some point in our lives, a commission is a unique, never-to-be-repeated creation. It is deeply personal, created through the interaction between client and artist.
At Abundare a commission will be based around the combination of Anglo-Celtic knotwork, words and painting. You may want to illuminate a favourite verse, prayer or saying; a geneaology or the name of your family or a person, for example, a child. It may be as a gift for a baptism, birthday, marriage, graduation, housewarming or any of the many ways we have to celebrate the different stages in our lives.
If this idea resonates with you, the steps below outline the process of commissioning such an artwork.
