Commissions

“If you invest in beauty, it will remain with you all the days of your life.”
                      –Frank Lloyd Wright

painting commission completed by Mary Jane Volkmann*(Story of a Painting Commission)

Over the years I have received some interesting painting commissions: interior and exterior murals in representational and abstract designs, African taxi decorations, illustrations for textbooks and children’s books, greeting and postcard designs, postage stamps and coins, as well as a book of 30 paintings which I was later asked to author.  The most common commission request I now receive and which I enjoy tremendously is to capture in a painting a special person, pet, place or memory which can be handed down over the generations.

If you would like to have a special painting created for yourself or as a gift for someone important to you, please contact me several months in advance to discuss what you would like.  With this information I will be able to give you a price and discuss completion and delivery details with you. Here are a few examples:
