WHAT IS A COMMISSION?
A commission is a custom work of art created specifically for the client.
WHAT SUBJECTS CAN BE COMMISSIONED?
Glaess is currently welcoming all subjects for commissions. Commissions can be inspired by a client's photograph or one of Glaess's existing paintings (see portfolio or previous commissions).
WHAT STYLE WILL THE COMMISSION BE IN?
All works will be painted using palette knives with oil paint.
WHAT IS THE PRICING FOR A COMMISSION?
Commission prices depend on size, style, and specifications of the individual work. Commission prices do not include Massachusetts Sales Tax or shipping. Prices start at $21.00 per linear inch. There is a commission price minimum of $250.
HOW DO I PAY?
Glaess will send an electronic invoice, which can be paid with credit card, check, and/or cash. PayPal and Venmo are also accepted forms of payment.
IS THERE A DEPOSIT?
A 50% deposit is needed in order to secure a slot in the commission waitlist.
WHAT IS YOUR CANCELLATION POLICY?
The deposit is 100% refundable at any point, and can either be cancelled by Glaess or the client.
HOW MUCH WILL SHIPPING COST?
Shipping costs vary depending on the size of the commission. Most larger commissions are custom crated, and shipping fees and can range between $500-800 within the continental USA.
IS DELIVERY AN OPTION?
I offer local delivery to clients in New England within a certain radius of my studio (MA, Northern CT, Southern NH, RI). Please contact me to see if you qualify.
ARE COMMISSIONS FRAMED?
Commission pricing includes an exclusive custom silver leaf floater frame. Other frame options (black, white, natural wood, etc.) are possible for an additional fee. Framing typically adds 2 inches to the entire perimeter of the work.
DO COMMISSIONS COME WITH A CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY?
All works come with a certificate of authenticity.
HOW LONG WILL IT BE BEFORE I RECEIVE MY COMMISSION?
After the 50% deposit is received, the client is added to the commission waitlist. Glaess works on commissions in the order that they are received. Currently the Commission turnaround time is 2-3 months.
