I am a storyteller. When I approach a project, I contemplate the story, memories, emotions and sentiments that I want to convey. I want my work to be meaningful, and to start awareness -- whether the artwork is about honoring someone's loved one, a family's togetherness, special events, or a humanitarian cause... Art has the power to steer people toward the truth or to an individual's redemptive identity. 

I accept commissioned (custom) art projects so if you would like something custom made for your space or your client's, please initiate your interest by selecting the 50% deposit option for this item. This project is not accepted by me until we have a fully signed contract.

PLEASE READ: PLACING A "50% Deposit for 1 Custom 24" X 30" Original Acrylic Mixed Media on Canvas" here is considered a "Pre-Order" for a commission -- for a new original Acrylic Mixed Media painting in the same size -- with a total cost (before shipping/packaging charges) of $6,000.00.

Once you pay a 50% deposit for a new custom 24" x 30" Original Acrylic Mixed Media artwork, here are the next steps that you can expect: 

  • I will review your pre-order and will contact you, within 2 business days, to arrange for a 10-minute phone call appointment, so we may discuss your project. If the project is not a good fit, or if I'm currently not available to take your commission project as per your desired timeline, I will process your refund immediately -- before or within 5 business days of placing your pre-order -- to inform you that the order has been cancelled.

  • If the commission project seems like it's a great fit, I will confirm that I will send you a contract to review, sign and return to me. 
    • The most important things in our custom or commission artwork contract are as follows:
          1. The 50% deposit is required and non-refundable after we both have signed the contract. The remaining 50%, plus cost of packaging/shipping (if any) are due upon completion. You will receive an invoice via email for the remaining balance.

          2. After we have signed the contract, the commission process is collaborative (ie., we will have approx 2-3 meetings online to discuss your custom artwork project, we will use a shared document to track all related information, as well as the design concept ). However, I need the creative freedom to follow my intuition to produce a well-composed mixed-media artwork for you or your client.

          3. A commissioned/personalized artwork can take approximately 1 week to 6 months to complete -- depending on our schedules, what you would like done, and if you have provided all of the original materials -- that you would like me to incorporate (such as personal mementos). We will note in the contract the estimated (and mutually agreed upon) target date of completion We will revise the contract regarding any date extensions -- as needed. All revisions to the original contract must be signed by all parties.

          4. Fine Art Paper Prints, Canvas Prints, Stationery such as Greeting Cards, Invitation Cards, and Postcards, Notebooks, Apparel, Home Goods,  and Accessories -- printed with your custom artwork will require additional fees. Please inquire for cost estimates and volume discounts.

          5. Projects that requires me to travel outside of the South Bay Area California will require an additional fee.

          6. Please note that unless I expressly sign over copyright to the buyer who's commissioned the painting or it was done as work for hire, copyright remains with the Artist (me/Jocelyn Cruz). Owning the actual original painting is not the same as owning copyright and reproduction rights in the painting.

          7. A "Licensing Commission" will require a different contract and policy on a case by case basis.

        I look forward to collaborating with you! I am blessed to create the custom artwork for your space or your client's. Thank you so much!


        With gratitude,

        Jocelyn

        Title: "Los Gatos Christian's 2016 Boys Volleyball Champions, 24" H x 30" W x 1.5" D

        Please Note: The image of the commissioned artwork shown for this item is to only provide you with a general idea of the look (composition and color palette) and feel (depth, layers and detail) for my painting style. It also serves as an illustration example as to how much detail I can fit in to the size of the canvas.

        Description:

        For the The Los Gatos Christian's 2016 Boys Volleyball Awards Night, the team's parents commissioned me to create this Mixed Media painting team in honor of the Coaches: Miss Nadine Ruhe, Mrs. Virginia Holden and Mr. Doug Rigg. This art piece celebrate the team's 1st Place win in the League in the South Division, as well as their BACSAL Tournament as CHAMPIONS! Congratulations LGCS Lions!

        Details:
        - I was inspired by the team's cheer, so I had used it as the quote for the typography: "LIONS on Me, LIONS ON 3, 1-2-3 LIONS!"
        Notice that the words "On Me" is placed above Head Coach Rue's image :)

        - On the top left, I placed the Final Score 22-25 on the Scoreboard as an underpainting behind the team's victory image

        - I also cut-up, stitched and used the players' original gym clothes and jerseys throughout the piece as an underpainting, with the intention of showing through the original typography on the fabric underneath my own hand-painted lettering ("Property of Class 2016 Los Gatos Christian School" from one of the boy's gym uniform is shown underneath the word "LIONS" near the center; the school's "LION mascot and LGCS Athletics' LOGO" also from another old gym uniform is behind the VOLLEYBALL NET.

        -The image of the team's captain spiking the ball in front of the net is shown at the left center. His image has inspired me to place an actual net on this piece... I had a lot of fun integrating the volleyball net to depict that the net is "attempting" to hold both the LION logo and the team, but I "burned holes" in the net to symbolize that it's "impossible to hold-back" the LIONS' courage, resilience, skills, and team spirit!

        Materials: Acrylic paints, gels and Mediums, photographs, original clippings from LGCS 2014, 2013 & 2016 yearbook and 2016 Sports Award Night, tissue paper, volleyball net, rusted nails, original fabric from the team's old P.E. t-shirts and jerseys.

        I will review your pre-order and will contact you, within 2 business days, to arrange for a 10-minute phone call appointment, so we may discuss your project. If the project is not a good fit, or if I'm currently not available to take your commission project as per your desired timeline, I will process your refund immediately -- before or within 5 business days of placing your pre-order -- to inform you that the order has been cancelled.

        The 50% deposit is required and non-refundable after we both have have signed the contract. The remaining 50%, plus cost of packaging/shipping (if any) are due upon completion. You will receive an invoice via email for the remaining balance.

        Working on another ART COMMISSION PROJECT: I will integrate all of these SPORTS JERSEYS & Original School Yearbook materials into my MIXED MEDIA PAINTING!! The real skill here is not just throwing everything and the kitchen sink together, but making sure and listening to my creative intuition on the proper composition of the overall piece--because it adds GREAT VALUE to the STORY OF THE THEME AND SUBJECT MATTER, and then also ELEVATING THE ARTWORK WITH LAYERS AND LAYERS OF UNEXPECTED EXCITING TRANSPARENT PAINTS, a variety of STITCHED TEXTURES and TYPOGRAPHY from THE RELEVANT ARTIFACTS!! it's getting really serious down here in My Art Studio, folks!! If you are looking for uniqueness, a high-level of personalization, and a truly extraordinary customized artwork which expressed authentic human experience and emotional connections, or captures the deep history of the subject matter, contact me for a commissioned painting. To All Ships at Sea, Friends, Family & Strangers: Please kindly repost to help me get the word out that I accept commission work orders!! MANY THANKS!! 🎨👊🌻✨✨✨✨✨ Go to http://www.lighthouseartdesign.com/#/commissioned-art/ to learn more about my art commission process and examples!
