There may come a time when you want an artist to create something for your own personal interest. This art is produced as a commission. Commissioned art involves the hiring of an artist to create a personalized piece on behalf of another. Artwork may be commissioned by private individuals, businesses or the government. Examples of commissioned artwork can include gifts for loved ones, memorial paintings, wedding guest books, murals, recreations of classical works (Reimpressions) and more. Commissions cultivate relationships between the artist and the community
The process of acquiring a commissioned artwork begins by speaking with the artist about your idea of the type of artwork you want and characteristics of the artist’s work that you enjoy. If the artist knows what you like about his or her work they can better create a work of art that you will enjoy for years to come. Sizing, pricing and other details are discussed at this stage. Once an idea of the desired artwork is established the artist can begin to create renderings for approval before any artwork is completed. A rendering is draft or sketch of the work to be completed.
