Nellie Windmill is Now Taking Commissions!

Oftentimes as an artist I get a lot of people telling me how much they love my work and that they really want to buy a piece but they don’t or haven’t yet. Most times the price point is inaccessible for them. But I also believe it’s because I haven’t created their painting yet. They might love my cluster balloon paintings but wish I’d paint a REALLY BIG one. Or maybe they’d like a constellation piece in a particular colour scheme. Or a smaller more affordable $50 painting!

I’ve given this a lot of thought. For all these reasons and because I genuinely think it will be fun, I am now accepting commissions!

There will be three ways in which you can customise your Nellie Windmill painting:

1. Subject

With most artists, when you commission a painting you know what you’ll be getting. They have a consistent subject matter – landscape, portraiture, still-life etc. The challenge for me (and you) is that I tend to paint something different each time. For this reason, I’ve chosen 6 subjects that I’ve painted before and am happy to paint again and again… and again.

Think of them as suggestions rather than limitations. If you don’t find what you’re looking for amongst them by all means, let me know what you’ve got in mind!

2. Colour

Choosing the colours is the best bit, right? Although I think for some having an infinite rainbow of choice could be overwhelming so I’ve taken the liberty of making some suggestions. If you have your own colour scheme in mind however, I would be thrilled to hear about it.

3. Size

This is where you can let your hip pocket decide or finally make me paint something BIG.
