Please remember... When an artist works for you, it is not only their time you are paying for. They have years of study, experience and investment. The materials and supplies cost money too. Sometimes they work with a team on large projects. All of this takes resources and money. Take time to see the true value and make a wise, thoughtful and considerate investment. Art is at the core of all we do. Creativity at it's purest.
Do you agree? Are you an artist? do you have a story to share? What precautions do you take?
Any discounts we give should only be for unique situations, charity and loyal clients. Get paid in advance and put all expectations on the table and in writing. It's not worth it putting hundreds of dollars and many hours in a project, if the client does not pay in the end or tries to talk you down to bread crumbs. There are too many that have done us right and we don't want them to suffer because of what someone else has done or neglected to do. Photos take time, paintings
