The Commission Process

Rose follows a series of well-defined steps to create a successful commissioned piece;
to fulfill the expectations of the client, follow a realistic timetable, and meet the agreed-upon price.


MEETINGS:  The first step is to meet with the client and/or the client’s agent to discuss the commission, and determine the scope of the project. Whether you have a clear idea of what you want, or if you want Rose to create a piece to complement a particular theme or setting, Rose will work with the your ideas and desires. She will present you with sketches, renderings or maquettes (small model for a 3-dimensional work) for you to review, change and approve.

ENVIRONMENT / SPACE:  The consideration of space is very important in the commission process: the specific niche in a home or business, the palette of the room’s décor, and the available lighting. A visit to the proposed site is recommended if possible for Rose to get a true feeling for the setting.

SCHEDULE / COST:  Once the final design is approved, the production schedule and final cost is agreed-upon, a contract is signed and the work can begin. Rose requires 50% of the commission in advance, to cover costs & materials. The client and Rose should agree on who will be responsible for the framing and / or installation. Rose does not have the time to work on commissions less than $1,000.

PROGRESS REPORTS:  While the work is underway, Rose will present the client with “in-progress” reports and photographs, either in person or by e-mail. This will encourage client feedback and facilitate any requested changes or alterations. When the commission is completed, Rose will set-up a schedule for installation.
