All things Comissioned.

“State of the Art Set Sail”. 36″ X 24″. Comissioned. Sold.

A large part of my business is commissioned paintings. Someone has an idea or a concept and wants me to capture it. What is challenging about this sometimes is the details left out and that’s when I get to play twenty questions  before beginning these paintings. The most helpful components of commissioned paintings are photos of the idea or concept, that way I can get a much better feel for what is wanted. Everyone has different tastes and likes and that is my job; to learn about them and capture them in art. I absolutely LOVE doing commissioned paintings and finding the purpose and meaning behind the idea/concept.  What makes people smile and what inspires people are all so interesting and unique. Occasionally I will get an idea or photo to replicate that I have to pass on and even though I don’t enjoy passing the opportunity up, sometimes I know the challenge maybe is too much for me at the time. Please email me at Amarie700@gmail.com if you are ever interested in having a commissioned piece done, my prices are reasonable and based mainly on estimated time spent and materials. I am also active on Instagram and Facebook ( Amy Kulseth or Amy Marie Art).

Old techniques revisited.

“State of the Art Northwoods Sunrise”. 48″ X 24″ X 1.5″. Textured palette knife with flat brush painting. Available.

As an artist I have to be open to change and trying new things. It is truly one area of my life where I deal with change the best. I enjoy experimenting with new techniques and also revisiting old techniques as it is all helps me to grow as an artist. In my painting classes back in my college years we were told what techniques to use and what to paint, it wasn’t ideal but it allowed me to find out what works and what doesnt and also what I need practice and work on. I have most recently gotten back into using texture in my paintings and using palette knifes in conjunction with my brushes. In my most recent painting I added texture to the foreground which has a really neat effect and makes it almost a 3D effect.
