A commission is a collaborative process between the client and the artist.
The painter's task is to visualize the story that the client wants to tell.

Thematic painting

Thematic portraits

Athena, the virgin goddess of wisdom and intelligence, or Apollo, the god of music and medicine. You might have a character you imagined with the characteristics you admire. You will be represented as a character of your choosing in the painting, to be reminded and remembered.

"Joanna", a commission completed in 2013, as an anniversary gift from husband to wife. With his geometric design and her favorite violin.

A person's face tells a story of his or her life. The artist will paint you or your loved ones in a setting of your choosing. Adding memorable items, the painting will tell the personal life story for generations to come.

Other projects

There are many other possibilities. Please feel free to suggest projects you have in mind.

 

The painting will start with a discussion about the theme. Once there is an understanding of the theme, the artist will create a sketch. Depending on the size, a small color study will also be made, before moving onto the real painting. This approval process will ensure a clear communication between the client and the artist.

For more detailed size and pricing information, please send an e-mail to info@chieyoshii.com with a subject line, “commission”. The artist will send you the basic guideline information as a pdf file. If you already have some ideas or specific questions, please mention it in the mail, so that the artist can reply with the answers.
