A commission by Krista Schumacher is not only a unique process but an exquisite adventure. During a commission, Krista concentrates on infusing the client's vision with hers; creating a truly one-of-a-kind piece of art. This opportunity incorporates one-on-one collaboration and direct communication with artist Krista Schumacher to create exclusive work.
STYLE + SUBJECT
Inspiration for commissions generally comes from previous works completed by Schumacher, or inspired by the client's own photographs. Schumacher only accepts landscape or abstract commissions. All commissions will be painted in Schumacher’s signature palette knife style with oil paints.
Typically, Schumacher begins the commission process by viewing the home or commercial space in person or virtually. Then, she will make recommendations for the space, taking into consideration sizing, color, and subject. Photoshop is routinely used to virtually stage ideas for clients considering commissions and a “prototype” painting may be drafted before attempting the final piece. The final design is a bedazzlement to both the artist and client.
PRICING + SIZE
Commission sizes are customizable to accommodate your space, design, and vision. The table below lists some of our most popular sizes, but commissions can be smaller or larger.
Prices include our exclusive warm silver leaf floater frame.
A frame will add approximately 2 inches to the total width and height.
