The Painting Commission Order Process:

1: Submit Order and Payment: The painting(s) commissioned will be the subject of a painting produced by Laura Wilson, and the image will be the artist's interpretation of the subject based on the pictures and information provided by the customer. Upon acceptance of the commission, the customer is to pay 50% of the total cost of the commission prior to start. (This amount is not refundable except as outlined below in "Refund Policy" section below),

2: Submit Photo References: The customer will supply the photo(s) of the subject that will be used for the painting along with as much detail as possible about what they want their painting to look like. 

3: Confirm Order and Approve Painting: The artist (Laura Wilson) will create a rough drawing for the customer to review, suggest changes and approve. All design changes should be made at this point. When the painting is completed, the artist will send a digital proof of the final painting for the customer's approval. Reasonable alterations can be made at this point. 

4) Final Payment and Delivery/Pickup: Once the customer's final payment (including all shipping and handling costs)  is received and verified, the painting will be insured and shipped. Without limitation, Laura Wilson Art holds the full and complete copyright and reproduction right to copy, exhibit, publish, display or distribute copies of he painting. The customer will not use the image of the painting except for individual use without written permission from Laura Wilson Art. 

Payment:

Payments can be on line via visa/mastercard or paypal. If the balance of the amount owed is not paid upon completion of the painting, the painting will not be shipped and the payment will be retained by the artist to help recover costs incurred for supplies and time spent by the artist. 

Customer Supplied Photos: 

It is the responsibility of the customer to supply any photographs or other materials that will be used as reference for the painting. These reference materials can be sent to the artist by e-mail. The customer authorizes Laura Wilson Art all rights to the photography sent. 

Painting changes: 

Although it is possible to make changes to a painting at any time, and some changes are a normal part of the process, if a customer initiated change involves duplicating the efforts of the artist after the customer has already approved the artist to advance, there will be additional charges. These types of changes could include layout, size, canvas, theme, style, material, design and major color changes. In most cases these charges will be no less than $25.00 and no more than $100.00 depending on the extent of the change. 

Refund Policy: 

If at any time during the first phase of the painting, you decide, for any reason, that you are not happy with the results you are getting, you may request a full refund of all money paid, no questions asked. If at any time later in the painting process you decide that you are not happy with the results you are getting you may still request a refund, but some funds will be deducted from the refund to help recover costs incurred and time lost by the artist. Once you receive your finished painting, it is not returnable and you will not receive a refund of payment. 

Painting Completion Time Line:

The time line for the completion of the painting can vary greatly depending on several factors, such as size of painting, complexity of the painting, how many changes are quested by customer, time spent waiting on customer approvals and payments from customer, as well as schedule of artist. At the time of actually commissioning the painting the artist and customer will come together on a reasonable time frame and every effort will be made by the artist to complete at such a time. If for any reason the artist feels there could be an issue with meeting a pre-determined deadline, she will contact the customer to advise.
