Abstract Drawing Commissions
Thanks for your interest in my commissioned artwork. It's such a pleasure to create pieces specifically for my clients.
I make a total of 3 drawings for one commissioned order from one image/photo. I’ll show it to you every time I make a new drawing and ask for your suggestions. Since I don’t use an eraser, I have to make a new one each time. Then, you can choose the one best drawing you like from the 3 drawings I have made.
If, for any reason you are not satisfied the commissioned artwork, you can use your 50% deposit as store credit for any available artwork in my shop within 10 days.
To start, please visit my Etsy shop, AnnAdamsArt.Etsy.com, and let me know any examples of my work that especially resonated with you. This helps me to understand your preferences.

Do you fix the artwork until I am satisfied with it?
I make a total of 3 drawings for one commissioned order. I’ll show it to you every time I make a new drawing, and ask for your suggestions. You will choose the one you like best of the three.
Is it possible to purchase all 3 drawings you make?
Yes. The price will be an additional 20% for 3 drawings. For example, if your commission order was $500, then it will be total $600 ($500 + 20% = $600) for 3 drawings. You must purchase all 3 at the same time.
5x7” --- $500 for 1 drawing (Total $600 for 3 drawings)
8x10” --- $560 for 1 drawing (Total $672 for 3 drawings)

and so on.
What if I’m not satisfied with the artwork?
If, for any reason you are not satisfied the commissioned artwork, you don’t receive any of the commission drawings, although you can use your non-refundable deposit as store credit for any available artwork in my shop, provided you do so within 10 days of completion of the commission.
Does the artwork come framed?
No. I recommend hiring a professional for mats and frames that suit your personal style.
What to expect.
I work from photography which clients provide to me. As you see from my artwork, I change the image for the composition, minimize the lines, and abstract the form. Your artwork will be completed in my artistic abstract style as represented in my shop. I will capture the beauty, power, and/or grace of the image you provide, in skilled controlled, and minimal strokes. This commission will provide enjoyment for many years to come.
How long does it take to complete a commissioned work?
Commissions typically take 2 - 4 weeks. Depending on how communications work with clients.
Can you make only the face look like me?
Every part of the artwork will be an abstract as you see my other drawings.
Do you draw in different colors?
Due to the considerable difference between actual color on paper and seeing it on a computer monitor, I only use black.
Can you draw larger than 18x24 inches?
I don’t, because I can’t find larger smooth paper that works well with the mediums I use.
Can I choose a different paper?
No. I use only smooth thick acid free white paper that works very well with the mediums I use.
Can I return the artwork for a refund?
There are no returns or exchanges on commissioned artwork. If there are any issues with shipping damage they must be documented and verified by the shipping company, and you must contact me immediately.
