Commission an Original Representational Canadian Landscape Oil Painting by Roger D. Arndt – Painter of the Canadian West

A commissioned painting is a timeless and personalized gift unlike any other you could ever give, or receive. The final result is a work of art combing your vision with the artist’s unique language and style.

The Process for Commissioning an Original Landscape Oil Painting with Roger D. Arndt

COMMISSION PROCESS: After initial discussion with the client over the phone, by video conference, or in person; Arndt compiles notes and begins with creating a series of sketches, followed by coloured oil studies. These studies are then photographed and submitted to the client for approval before commencing with the original commissioned painting.

FEES: Current pricing for an original commissioned work painted by Roger D. Arndt are the same as pricing for existing original landscape paintings, which are priced by size.

LOCATION ASSESSMENT: if the original custom landscape painting you wish to have created requires the artist to fly into a remote location for creation of life studies, this would be an additional cost, paid by the client.

DEPOSIT UPON BEGINNING WORK: A 25% deposit is required upon agreement and approval of studies and before beginning work. Commissions can take between six to eight months depending on the complexity and size of the work. A commissioned painting is a lovingly crafted original creation and a collaboration between you and the artist, therefore it requires time and patience ensuring a one-of-a-kind, beautifully finished piece that will hold up and be enjoyed for generations.
