Kyle, thank you again for reaching out with what I have to say is the most complete, accurate and well thought out commission input I have every received. I love working with clients that have this degree of insight into what they are looking for and that so fully embrace the idea of co-creating custom artworks. 

This page serves as a detailed overview of the scope of a possible commission engagement, the associated pricing and project timeline. In addition, this page is arranged so that if you agree with the scope as outlined you can use this secure site to execute the deposit. 

PROJECT OVERVIEW

Artist John Kraft will engage with Kyle Sugamele (Client) to create three custom 52 in. x 28 in. x 1.5 in. mixed media and resin on wood original artworks. General characteristics of each piece, as originally described by the client are as follows:

I. "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds"

a. Based on John Kraft's original artwork, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds
b. No changes to original work colors or design, other than:
+ Design to accommodate custom size and aspect ratio
+ Advance color test and confirmation of background via video preview
+ Custom deep border coloring per further discovery/discussion, alternatively at the discretion of the client, finished with the natural wood sides of the custom birch wood panels, coated with clear sealant (vs. color border)
c. Wired and ready to hang

II. "Daydream Believer"

a. Based on John Kraft's original artwork, Daydream Believer
b. No changes to original work colors or design other than:
+ Design to accommodate custom size and aspect ratio

+ Custom deep border coloring per further discovery/discussion, alternatively at the discretion of the client, finished with the natural wood sides of the custom birch wood panels, coated with clear sealant (vs. color border)
c. Wired and ready to hang

III. "Mix and Match"

a. Based on John Kraft's original artwork, Good Day Sunshine
b. Detailed flower design guidance from client: (reference Daydream Believer) - purple being the “tulip” shape, the yellow/orange sunflower being the largest round shape, the orange, yellow and maroon being the small round shapes, and the orange and maroon for the leaf colors.
c. Detailed background guidance from client: (reference Top - When the Sun Hits and Bottom - Daydream Believer) 
d. Vase shape/color based on Already Home

Other considerations:
