Exclusively for Moraway Guests
YOUR STORY TOLD IN OILS.
Commemorate your Moraway adventure with
a custom painting!
Just as Moraway Adventures is deeply committed to giving you the most unique experiences in the far corners of the world, I'm committed to helping you celebrate the highlights of your trip in a one-of-a-kind oil painting.
I specialize in turning your favorite photo into an expressive and completely unique fine art oil painting. I can even work from several photos to make a composite image that captures the essence of your trip.
What will I paint? From your heart-stopping encounter with a wild elephant in Zimbabwe, to the stunning peaks of Peru, or marine iguanas in the Galapagos, I will call upon all my creativity to create an oil painting that can become a joy for you and an heirloom to those who come after you.
Would you like a secret peek at your masterpiece being created? As an exclusive extra for Moraway Adventures guests, you will not only get the finished painting, but also a timelapse video like the one below of me painting it from start to finish in my studio gallery!
Contact me any time for a free consultation.
"We had admired Britt's work for her beautiful and vivid landscapes and reached out to see if she worked on commission. We had a particular scene and size in mind, and Britt was happy to work with us. We shared a few pictures with her and she advised on how best to bring them to life in a painting. She kept us in the loop throughout the process but we also could rely on her judgment. We couldn't be happier with the final result - it was just what we had in mind! She even helped us through the framing process and provided some in-process pictures of our painting. Thank you Britt!"

STARTING YOUR CUSTOM WORK
How do I start the custom painting process?
Contact me, below, or email me one or more photos. Include your size preference or your budget. Tell me what you like about the photo visually, and also some adjectives that describe how you felt in that moment.
I will get back to you with 2-3 possible composition options and other notes.
Once size and reference design is selected, you will receive a price quote for the painting, including sales tax as well as estimated shipping cost and a time estimate.
A 20% of price non-refundable deposit holds your place in the commission queue.
I keep you apprised of the progress of the painting throughout, and will send you photos and a video from different angles of your finished work for your approval.
Once approved, remaining balance is paid.
( If you don’t love it, I will either modify to your satisfaction or you are free to walk away. This hasn't happened yet-but I want you to know it's an option! The initial 20% deposit is non-refundable. )
Your artwork is carefully packed in a box designed for shipping large fine art paintings, and shipped as soon as possible after payment is received.
Once your painting arrives, you will love it or send it back within 2 weeks for a refund minus the 20% initial deposit and minus shipping costs both directions (this has never happened, but I want you to know it's an option!)
What About Framing?
Your masterpiece is painted on your choice of support from a thick-edged canvas with painted sides that doesn't need a frame to a board or flat canvas that you can take to your favorite local framer.
The base price for commissioned work is $4/square inch.
The minimum order for a commission is $1600 before tax and shipping.
Individual quotes will be given for more complex subject matter - such as human portraits.
Here is the base cost for some standard size artworks:
20x20 inch - $1600
18x24 inch - $1728
24x30 inch - $2880
30x40 inch - $4800
36x36 inch - $5184
36x48 inch - $6912
48x48 inch - $9216
I can't wait to see your "wonder moment" and get started.
Let’s Work Together
"I wanted to commemorate my husband’s first glacier climb. Britt helped me select a photo from the climb. She helped me to realize the ‘what’ that I was trying to capture in a painting. I selected a challenging scene of mostly glacier snow and ice. Britt was able to show the texture of the snow as well as capture the action of the climbers as they move up the glacier. I am absolutely thrilled with how the painting came out. I definitely recommend her as a painter of commissioned art!"
