The cost of a piece depends on a variety of factors – size, subject matter (meaning the particular sport, how many figures in the painting,) materials, etc. You do not see a "buy link" on the images as I prefer to work directly with the client for a personal experience. Almost all of my work is large-scale generally starting as 5 feet by 6 feet, acrylic on unstretched canvas. (that means no stretcher bars or frames.) The paintings generally hang much like a tapestry or banner. Some clients do have them framed. The sizes go up to 8 feet by 15 feet with a variety of sizes in-between depending on the space allocated for it’s hanging.
I can create paintings to fit specific needs, including smaller work. The smaller work I create is generally using old sports magazines and newspaper, attaching the material to gallery wrapped stretched canvas and creating a figure on the applied material. The piece is then lacquered for both the aesthetics and protection of the surface.
