Information about Commissions


Clendaniel uses artist-grade oil paints that do not contain any toxic solvents. He paints on panel versus canvas, because canvas is less durable. If you prefer canvas, he would be glad to accommodate your request. The painting supports are primed with three coats of white primer, a layer of red, and a thin layer of gold paint. The red and gold paint shine through small gaps in the oil paint, making the paintings glow when light hits them at certain angles. This is Clendaniel's signature technique. A natural wood frame is included, with hanging hardware installed, so the painting will be ready to hang.


The following prices are for standard sizes. Custom sizes are available. A natural wood frame is included, with hanging hardware installed. Domestic shipping is free.

Payment Options

The artist accepts cash, credit cards, Venmo, PayPal and checks. Payment is due in advance.

Process and Timeline

After payment is complete, you can send the artist reference photos, and information about details you'd like in the painting. The artist will create a sketch for your approval. Once a sketch is approved, he will start painting. The painting will be completed in 1-2 weeks, based on workload. Please allow a week for the oil paint to dry. Then the painting will be coated with a protective varnish, and framed.
