How to commission an oil painting with Ona:

I often paint solely from good reference photos provided by the client. I can suggest desirable adjustments to the composition, appropriate painting size, price, and time frame. Upon your approval of a preliminary sketch, a standard contract is executed and a 50% nonrefundable deposit paid. The painting process then begins, and we communicate at a few key intervals of the painting’s development.  When the painting is complete (allow about 6 weeks), a final varnish is applied and allowed to dry. The remaining 50% is then paid and the painting is ready for you to frame and enjoy!

Feel free to email me with any questions:

Commission client testimonials:

“From the beginning of the project, Ona’s communications with us were more than we expected.  She was friendly, forthright, and understanding. She sent us a copy of various stages of the painting and asked for our feedback, taking pains to address our concerns.  She did not stop until we were pleased with the final excellent product. If we wanted another custom painting, we would not hesitate to contact Ona.” B & E F

"Mrs. Ona's artwork is amazing and her skill in these artwork is very impressive. In addition to the finished product, it was such a pleasure to work with Mrs. Ona. She is such a pleasure and is very open with her communication of the process of the piece. From the idea, to the initial sketch to the finished painting, she communicated very well and allowed me to make changes and adjust the painting throughout the entire process to get the exact custom piece I desired, and she did so with no problem at all. Mrs. Ona was a pleasure to work with and her finished piece is an amazing painting. She was able to capture the exact scene I was hoping for and now it is a staple piece in my home." J B

“We love our most recent painting of the Presque Isle Lighthouse.  Ona has the unique ability to blend art with technical authenticity.  Her pursuit of capturing the essence of the subject is evident. She uses photographs and actual visitation of the subject. You can see and feel the artist’s touch.  Ona’s presentation of her art is accented by framing that is truly unique.  Although talent of this caliber cannot be rushed she has served us with timely delivery.   We now have four of Ona’s works in our house and all receive attention and wonderful comments from our guests. Surely an asset in any home or office.    R & V M
