Commissions & FAQs

COMMISSIONS

I love your paintings! Do you take commissions? 

Absolutely! It's a joy for me to work on custom pieces. I am accepting a limited number of commissions per month, on a first-come first-served basis. Commission size minimum is 12x12", and the starting price point is $200. Send a message to hello (at) michelleboydstudio.com for more information! Please include any design ideas or desires you already have in your inquiry.

How long do commissions take to be completed?

Anywhere from 2-4 months. This includes drying time for both oil paints and varnish, so that shipping will be safe for your painting. 

What supplies do you use? 

I use oil paints as my primary medium, with the occasional acrylic base. Most paintings are done on stretched canvas pieces, with the occasional solid birch panels. (These will be marked and explained in each item's description.)  

How are your paintings finished?

All paintings are finished using an essential-oil based, semi-gloss varnish.

SHIPPING

What is the shipping process? 

All pieces are shipped USPS Priority Mail, carefully and lovingly packed in a box. You will receive a tracking number and will be notified once your painting has been shipped. 

I live in Austin, TX, can I pick up my painting?

Yes! My Austin, TX customers can use the code "ATXPickUp" to let me know you'll come pick it up instead of waiting for it to ship out. I will contact you after your order is placed to arrange a time for you to come pick up your painting.
