  4. Desired painting size (specify orientation: horizontal, vertical, or square)

  9. Sign the commission contract that Christi sends you via email.
  10. Pay the commission price and shipping fees:
  11. The commission price is listed below and is in addition to the reservation fee.
  12. Shipping is approximately $120 within the U.S. (shipping costs may be higher for larger paintings or for shipping to Canada; customs fees are the responsibility of the collector).  We will send you a shipping estimate once we know the size.
  13. Christi will send you an invoice, which allows you to securely pay by PayPal or with credit card.
  14. Once the commission agreement is signed and paid for, there are no refunds.
  15. Christi will start painting your piece, which typically takes 2-4 weeks to complete.  Drying times may vary.
  16. Christi will send you update photos approximately halfway through the painting process and a final photo upon completion. You can give your approval or request minor edits. Any extensive edits (as judged by the artist) beyond that are subject to a 15% additional fee.
  17. Lastly, your painting will be shipped to you!
