Mike has been asked to paint all manner of commissions over the years: from stunning vistas that immortalize special moments to portraits of beloved family and friends to works that memorialize pets who have crossed the rainbow bridge. Commissions create a special bond between the client, the artist and the subject and Mike is honored to share in these one-of-a-kind memories.
If you'd like an original piece, here is how to commission a painting by Mike in six easy steps:
Email your photos and thoughts to Mike Carroll. If it’s a treasured spot on Lana'i, Mike will take a reference photo for you. Mike's email address will be provided after an initial contact through his website.
You decide on the size of the painting and pay a 50% deposit.
Mike drafts a "photosketch" to get your OK on the planned composition.
Mike completes the painting and you approve it, paying the remaining 50%.
Mike carefully packs and ships your painting anywhere in the world.
Unwrap and enjoy your very own commissioned art!
