Cinque Terre Italy 2016 Commissioned Painting by Jason Oliva
Cinque Terre Italy 2016 is 54 x 36 acrylic on canvas and a great example of one of the many commissioned paintings that I have created through out my career. In this instance the commissioning couple had a great time visiting Cinque Terre and reached out to me to create a painting to commemorate all the great memories they created while visiting Italy. I am fortunate enough to have the time to take on 10 or 12 commissions a year…the process is simple for those interested: let me know your idea and if it has not conflicted with something I have already painted then I work on a paper study which later will be made into a painter for the purchasing collector.
What I like most about commissioned paintings is how all the energy that I normally put into thinking abut what to paint goes into how to paint something…its truly a collaboration between myself and the commissioner and the results have been some of my favorite and best paintings.
I put a ton of effort into Cinque Terre and my hope is to be able to reproduce it as a hand painted work on paper…if anyone is interested please let me know. In addition if you would like to discuss commissioning a painting feel free to drop by the studio or email me at Jason@jasonoliva.com
Hope everyone is well
