Commissioned Painting Questions 

I love working on commissioned paintings because it allows me the chance to create something while holding open a direct line of connection to the space the painting will occupy and to the people I am creating it for. This particular facet of the creative process is very dear to me and I appreciate the experience and opportunity to create in this way. 

The process of commissioning a painting goes way beyond the practical demands and aesthetic sensibilities. The energy of the painting will resonate throughout the space it occupies and should ultimately contribute to the overall well-being of the people who live among it. So, I've listed some questions below that will help us start the process of making your painting.

*These questions are mostly aimed at the commission process as it pertains to the invented landscape paintings that are most prevalent on my site. If you're interested in commissioning a painting of a particular place or one done en plein-air, please make sure to fill out the last section of the form.     

Thank you!

Feel free to describe and list particular colors or even sections from my paintings where the color resonated with you the most
Before the process officially begins, you’ll be sent a contract with all the details about your project including price, timeline, deposit and final payment schedule, separate shipping and handling fees, as well as any other details that might be unique to your project. Electronic/online transactions are preferred but traditional checks can also be accepted. If you are using a credit card, you’ll be sent a link to an personalized icon in the ‘Commission Store’ section of my website which will prompt you to make a purchase the same way all online purchases are made. A 2.75% processing fee is added to all credit card purchases. I’ve also set up a Venmo account which allows you to safely make payments without processing fees. It’s basically like sending a check, but way quicker. There are no fees if you use it with your checking account, debit card, or U.S. bank account. Just download the Venmo app and find me by entering my email address (adriano@adrianofarinella.com) or phone number (610-739-1247). Select your payment method below
