Commissioned Paintings

Although many clients purchase existing work, Kathy often collaborates with her collectors to create that very special one-of-a-kind piece of art. Inspiration for these commissions can be from the client’s own photo or from her existing portfolio and archived works.

If you reside in the San Diego area, we can come to your home or business, view your walls and make recommendations of the size and subject that would best optimize your space.  If distance is a factor, clients can send an image and dimensions of their space and suggested ideas can be photoshopped to best fit the space and design of the room. 

Any size painting, small to very large, will be painted with oil paints in her impressionistic palette knife style. Pricing varies upon size and subject.  Generally, a floater style frame will be included and custom cypress frames can be designed upon request.  Commissions can be shipped worldwide.  Shipping prices vary depending on size and location shipped.  Custom wooden crates will be made for larger works for extra protection. 

The turnaround time for commission work varies, but typically is approximately four months.  A 50% deposit is required to be on the commission wait list.  Deposits can be refundable at any point, either by Schumacher or the customer.  The remaining balance is due upon completion and delivery.
