How  do I place an order for a commission or order a painting?                                                           
Fill out the form on the Contact Page of this website.  You can also contact me directly at djbarlup@gmail.com                                                                                                         

What are my payment options?
You can pay with a check, money order or through PayPal.  If you are ordering a commissioned painting, 50% (nonrefundable) is due at the time of the commission.  I will send you a detailed pencil sketch and begin your painting when you have approved the sketch.  The balance is due on the completion of the painting plus shipping and handling and PA sales tax 6% if you are a PA resident.

How long will it take?
Please send high resolution photos by email for your painting.  More photos are better.  Make sure they are clear and easy to see.  The photos you send me effect the quality of the painting. After you send me your photos and deposit, I will begin a sketch.  I will send that to you via email.  You may make any changes at this point.  I will continue to work on the sketch until you are pleased.  With your approval, I will begin the painting. This process takes 4 to 6 weeks.  When you approve the final painting, you can pay the balance due and I will ship you your watercolor.  Remember that this process can take longer if you are interested in a special painting around a holiday.  

Can photographs be combine?
Definitely!  Please give me any detail instructions you want in your painting.  I will show you the sketch before I begin the actual painting.  That way you can make any changes so you have exactly what you want. You can always contact me by email with questions and comments.  I want you to be pleased with your painting.

How will my painting be shipped?
All paintings will be carefully wrapped and shipped.  Shipping is included in the price of the painting.  All paintings are matted and backed unless you indicate another preference. 

What is the price for a painting?
There are many factors included in pricing:  size, number of subjects in the painting, choice of framing if you desire it.   Contact me so we can discuss the options and the cost.  Paintings begin at $150 for a 7"x10" with one subject and a simple background.  The price includes a mat and backing board and shipping.
