Let’s start with two very important clarifications – painting commissions, at least in my case, are not portraits of real people made from reference photo (I explicitly don’t do such things), and they are also not copies of other paintings, mine or anyone else’s (if you want a copy of some painting of mine – you can order a Limited Edition Print).The artworks I create for a specific occasion (anniversary, new home, birthday, etc.) or for a specific premise (home or office), as requested by a client, I call commissions.

They lost the shipment somewhere along the way.
