To the left is a bronze sculpture I did for a collector of fine art in California. It looks three dimensional, but is actually a bas relief, about 4″ in depth from front to back.
It’s curved, and is set against a stone pillar looking over one end of his swimming pool. It was $35,000.

4. PLACEMENT and CARE of YOUR ARTWORK
Your new piece of art needs a safe installation location
You’ll need to prepare for its care (easy)
It needs a weather-safe location, or a weather-safe finish
Will it be placed inside or outside? This will determine what materials to use to ensure the longevity of your new artwork.
Will it be exposed or protected from weather, wear and vandalism? This determines the finish I use in order to keep it from winter or weather harm.
Do you have an idea for a piece of art that might be like something you see on this site?
Something that might be like a piece of art or photo you have seen elsewhere? If so, you can provide photos or pictures for reference.
If you don’t have a specific idea for what you want, we can discuss further until we get to the point that I can make sketches so we can come up with something I can do for you.
WHEN DO I START CREATING?
I start carving or painting once I have a concrete agreement with you about what you want, and know that I can fulfill that.
This is a painting I did for my chiropractor in Honolulu. He has it in his office now, for his own and his clients’ pleasure. It was $7500
MATERIALS I WORK WITH
oils on canvas
oils on archival paper
oils on archival board
gouaches on archival board

I suggest you be very specific as to your budget requirements so you avoid either over-spending or inability to meet payments.
A piece of art can take anywhere from one week to months to complete, depending on the materials used, the complexity of design or installation, and any number of other factors.
I strive to meet schedules as timely as possible, and if I cannot, always communicate with you and make new arrangements suitable to us both.
We make a written agreement that stipulates:
the idea of the piece
approximate time for completion
You make a NON-REFUNDABLE deposit of one-third of the final, total agreed-upon price
I commence creating the piece
I SEND YOU PIX
As soon as I think it’s at an appropriate stage for you to see the progress made, I send you pictures of the piece for your approval or if you are nearby, call you to come take a look
You approve progress so far – or not –
Continuation of project
Upon approval of progress so far, you send a check for one-third final price
COMPLETION & PIX

Call for re-approval
Packing and shipping costs determined
You send check for final one-third price plus shipping and handling
