Commission a painting by Joyce Burkholder of your home, cottage or special place — or a beloved pet or animal.
Commissions vary in price depending on the size and medium. I work in oils, acrylics, watercolours or pastels and art may be framed or unframed. I can work from your photos or take my own. As the work is in progress, I email you photos for comments and feedback.
Large or small, a commissioned painting captures a very meaningful time and place. It is something special that can be passed on through generations as an important memory of those who wanted it preserved, lovingly in paint.
Rave reviews of past commissions!
