The Creation Process & Pricing
Creating a work of commissioned art is a highly custom process where we work with you to understand your vision and what you would like for your personal masterpiece. It's a a unique art form created in a digital medium that is painted one brush stroke at a time using a stylus on a graphics tablet by our staff artist Karen Sperling.
You'll schedule a time with Karen during which we'll have an online meeting to discuss your needs, look over any reference images you have and learn about the special meaning behind the moment you would like preserved. Based on this meeting we'll be able to establish which tier your image will fall within for your budgeting needs. From there you can use our Quote Builder Tool to complete your custom designed TV Art Cover.
Once you have placed the order for your TV Art Cover, Karen will be begin creating your masterpiece and within a few weeks it will be completed for your review and approval. From there the image will be transferred to canvas to be built into your motorized TV Art Cover. The overall process from the time the order is placed until the shipping of your completed frame is approximately 6 weeks.
