COMMISSION FAQ

WHAT IS A COMMISSION?

A commission is a custom work of art created specifically for the client.

 

WHAT SUBJECTS CAN BE COMMISSIONED?

Schumacher only accepts landscape and abstract commissions. The commission can be inspired by an existing painting or a client’s photograph.

 

ARE COMMISSIONS FRAMED?

Commission prices include our exclusive warm silver leaf floater frame. Other frame options (black, white, natural wood, etc.) are possible for an additional fee. Frames typically add 2 inches to the canvas size.

 

WHAT IS THE PRICE FOR A CUSTOM COMMISSION?

Prices are around $3.25 per square inch.

 

HOW MUCH WILL SHIPPING/DELIVERY COST?

Shipping costs vary depending on the size of the painting. For petite work, shipping is included. For medium sized paintings (720 to 1,296 sq. in.) shipping is $350. For large sized paintings (1,297 sq. in. or above) shipping is $750. 

Our team also offers delivery options for collectors in the Southern California area. For clients in San Diego County, the delivery and installation is included. For clients in the Los Angeles / Palm Desert area, the delivery is $650. 

IS THERE A DEPOSIT?

There is a 50% refundable deposit. The deposit is refundable at any point of the commission process, and can either be canceled by Schumacher or the client. The remaining half shall be paid upon completion of the painting. Krista Schumacher will send an invoice electronically, which can be paid with a credit card, check, and/or cash. Paypal and Venmo are also accepted forms of payment.

 

WHAT IS THE TIMELINE?

After the 50% deposit is received, the client is added to the commission wait list. Schumacher works on commissions in the order they are received. Currently, the commission turnaround time is 6 months.
