Designing Your Artwork
Once you've contacted Kim with an initial idea or request, she will schedule a consultation with you via phone or email to plan your artwork. Since each painting is a commissioned piece of art, you have the ability to personalize the design with any of the following:
- Favorite color(s)
- Favorite animal(s)
- Clothing selections
- Letter(s) of the alphabet shown
- Child's name, nickname, birth date, etc.
- And lots more... let your imagination go wild!
On the other hand, you may see something in the Kiddie Canvas Gallery that strikes your fancy. If a painting is still available, you may be able to purchase it immediately. Otherwise, Kim can work with you to create something similar in color, subject or style.
Each Kiddie Canvas painting is individually hand-drawn and colored by Kim. As this is a custom process that may require your input / feedback, time is an important factor. Typical turn-around time is usually 2 to 4 weeks, depending upon the size and complexity of your painting request. In addition, Kim's schedule may fill up quickly during certain times of the year (like before the holidays!), so please contact her as soon as you have a question or request so that she can reserve time for your painting(s).
Prices for each painting are typically based on canvas size and complexity. Other factors, like requesting a rushed order, may add to the total cost. Your painting's price will be set during the initial consultation.
For all custom painting projects, a 50% deposit is required after the initial consultation to begin the work. The remainder is due upon completion, when you receive the finished canvas.
If you are purchasing an existing painting displayed in the Gallery, full payment is due when you pick-up the canvas.
