How to get started?
Before you approach the artist you may want to answer these questions yourself so you are able to clearly convey your expectations.
What size would you like your painting to be? Determine where this painting will be on the wall.
Do you feel strongly that certain colors or shades of color should be included in the painting? If so be sure to let the artist know.
What is your budget? Be honest with yourself and the artist. If your budget is tight let the artist know. Sandy might be able to work with you to let you know how to decrease your costs.
