*** Commission schedule is full through 2023, I am not taking on new commissions. ***

Thank you so much for your interest in my work.

Commissioning a painting is like working collaboratively.

The more information I have from you, the better chance I have of realizing your dream painting.

I look forward to working with you!

Frequently Asked Questions:

The painting I like has sold. Can you repaint it?

I'm happy to capture the feel of your favorite painting while also making it uniquely yours. Now you can own it in the perfect size for home.

Can you do it without fabric?

Yes. 

Can I commission a painting by you through your gallery?

Absolutely! In fact, that is one of the first questions I ask. If you found me through one of my galleries, I want to make sure that they get credit. The galleries keep me in business when I keep them in business. 

Can you work from my photo?

Possibly, maybe. Email it to me, I'll take a look and let you know. Do keep in mind that I paint scenes loosely and in an expressionistic way. To allow for fabric layering, I will not use a photo with detail in the foreground, or a scene with buildings or people.

What if the commissioned painting is not a good fit or I change my mind? 

No worries. I can tweak it, make changes, paint over, remove or add fabric, etc. Or I'm happy to start again. 

Or we can press pause and you can reach out when you want to start the process again. I won't send the invoice until you approve it.​

How soon can you make it? 

Delivery is in typically 6 - 12 months. Sometimes my schedule is backed up with commissions or preparing for a exhibition, but I will do my best to meet your deadline. Or... 25% rush charge for delivery in 4 - 6 weeks.

How much is the deposit?

$200 is needed to secure your spot on my calendar and to cover materials.​ Payable by check or credit card online. Partial refund if you change your mind.

Can you ship this? 

Yes, most paintings ship for $40 - 200 in the United States. Email me your size and zip code for a shipping estimate.

Can I see photos of the work in process?​

I'll share photos when your painting is ready. Then I'll ask for your feedback and will make changes as needed. 

Do you have more questions? 

Email me at karinolah@gmail, Call me at 843-259-8321, schedule a studio visit, or ask for a Art Consultation in your Charleston home. 

Large Scale, To the trade, Multiples, and Wholesale Pricing  is $1 - $2 per square inch. 

Designers, please email me for an accurate price and turn around time for your project.
