Book a Personalized Commission

Scroll down this page to see examples of some of the pet commissions I have painted.  I would enjoy painting a personalized commission of someone or something that is special to you.  Pets, houses, old trucks, landscapes -- just about anything. All I need is a photograph (better yet, multiple photographs!) to work with.  Photographs should be clear and show details. 

This is the process:

1)  First you contact me via the Book a Commission button below, which will take you to a form to fill out. 

2)  In addition to filling out the Commission form, you will need to send me a separate email (bethowenwatercolors@gmail.com) with at least one photograph of what you would like painted (more photographs is even better!)  The photographs should be clear and detailed.

3)  I will then contact you to discuss the painting that you are considering commissioning me to paint along with a price quote.

4)  My fee is $2 per square inch with a minimum fee of $225.  US Ground shipping is free.  I don't require deposits or payment until the last step of the process when I am ready to mail your painting.

5)  If you decide to proceed,  we will discuss the style and colors you would like and I will email you an initial sketch for your approval.

6)  Once the painting is finished, I will send final photos for your approval.

7)  Prior to your painting being mailed, full payment is due.

8)  I will mail you your original watercolor -- congratulations!  I hope it brings you joy!

9)  I retain ownership of the digital image of that watercolor, and you must get my permission to make any reproductions from that.  Also note that I retain the right to make reproductions of  my commissioned watercolors for resale to the general public.

10)  Currently, I am booked out on commissions for about six months.

Here are a few recent watercolor commissions I painted with the original photos next to them:
