Do you take commissions? Can you paint a picture I have?


Sometimes. I only accept requests I feel confident I can replicate well. You can reach out via my contact form if you have a specific request. I have taken on requests in the past that involve similar scenes to my style or other state shapes. I only paint landscape scenes- no animals, houses, or portraits are accepted.

Can you paint a different state shape?


Yes! If you have a request for a state, let me know via my contact form or email me at summerkerrart@gmail.com There is a $15 setup charge for a new shape.




When are new paintings added?


I try to add one new painting to the shop a week. However, sometimes that does not happen due to filling requests for customers, gallery shows, or my schedule is overbooked.




What takes so long? What's the process?


It takes 4-6 weeks for a state painting from start to finish. It takes two weeks to prep the wood. Additionally, oil paints are known for their slow dry time. It typically takes 2-4 weeks for the painting to dry and be ready for varnish. However, I have had paintings take up to two months to dry!
