Angela Nesbit enjoys working on commissions as a fun break in the business of producing paintings for shows and galleries. “I enjoy getting to know the family and working together to produce a painting they will love,” she says.
Angela accepts up to two commissions per month and each takes 2-4 months to complete. The majority of her commissions are of families and children, though she frequently works with interior designers on still lifes and landscape projects. The process includes several consultations with the client to understand their needs, determine appropriate size and colors, and select photos, finish and framing. See below for additional information about the commission process.
“If you are looking for an artist that can capture moments in life on canvas in a vivid and realistic way, Angela Nesbit shows time after time through her paintings lifes simple treasures...the journey!”
