Commissions are cool!!


I painted this commission for a client in St. Louis named katie, and I love how it looks over her sofa. She also decided to go with a floating frame from Franken Frames, my favorite source for very affordable, great quality wooden floating frames for paintings. She chose model number 2008 btw.

  1. So this is really really lovely … I’m curious, though, what was the design spec on this one? What did the client ask for? How did this differ from one of your regular paintings?

  6. Thank you so much for the floating frame source. I think I'm going to frame your painting in a pale birch. Love this piece, Michelle!

    I was also wondering what this customer asked for, did she give you a list of favorite colors, images, a 'mood' for her painting? I am also thinking about a comission and would like to know more. My painting would be about 5'x6', so it will be a focas point too... please share!

  10. Hi Anon,
    Yes, exactly. This client sent me fabric swatches, photos of her home, and showed me the paintings of mine that she liked best in terms of composition and color. I took all of this information and let it sit in my brain for a little while, then I painted this for her; an original piece that features the shapes and colors she likes best!
