Custom Acrylic, Pastel, or Watercolor
What I need from you to do a custom Acrylic, Pastel or Watercolor painting?
•If you would like a personal painting of a person, place or thing, I will need good photographs of the subject.
•The photos can be the standard “jpg” format from your digit camera.
•More than one photo is better because the information from one photo can be deceiving and incomplete. The true color of the subject and other important details can be unclear in just one photo. If you send more than one photo, your input as to which photo is the key photo to use for the painting and which photo is to use for checking the true color of the subject. If other photos are included, showing important details please let me know why you included them.
Other information that is needed include:
• What medium do you want used? Acrylic, Pastel or Watercolor?
• What size do you want the painting? There are standard sizes of canvas and frames but your painting can be any size or shape you want.
• Will the painting be horizontal, vertical, square or other?
• What style do you want me to use for the painting? If you have other paintings, sometimes I can tighten or loosen up the rendering a little to “fit” with other works.
• Framing the painting. I usually do not frame the paintings. I have found that most clients would rather choose their own frame. This way they can add their own touch of creativity to the final presentation.

Custom Drawings and Illustrations
What I need from you to do a custom Drawing & Illustration?
• A single custom drawing of a single subject will require a good photo and, if possible, more than one photo to make sure of the color and details of the subject are clear.
• The photos can be the standard “jpg” format from your digital camera
• Projects needing custom drawings or illustrations for patent applications, instruction manuals, books or “Powerpoint” presentations, I will need good photographs of the subjects.
• The true color of a subject, if applicable, and other important details can be unclear in just one photo. So multiple photos of complex subjects is advised. If you send more than one photo, I will need your input explaining the important details that they show. Many of these kinds of projects will require either a consultation by phone or extensive detailed communication by email.
Other information that is needed include:
• What is the deadline for the project?
• What is the budget for the project?
• In what medium do you want the final illustrations?
For example, Computer files like “Illustrator” or a physical medium like ink or watercolor.

Custom Painted Rocks
The rocks are primed with an acrylic coating (Gesso). The medium I use is acrylic paint. I protect the finished work with an acrylic varnish. Most of the rocks are spaperweight size, but I have done a few that were about the size of a large domestic cat and weighted about 45 pounds. The total price will include the shipping charges.
If you want to order a custom painted rock please send your request to George@GeorgeWithamArt.com
What I need from you to do a custom Painted Rock?
• A good photograph of the subject is very important. The standard “jpg” format from your digital camera is fine.
• More than one photo is better because the information from one photo can be deceiving and incomplete. The true color of the subject and other important details can be obscure in just one photo. If you supply more than one photo please number them and describe what detail each photo supplies.
I usually paint all the sides of the rock. Sometimes I even paint the bottom of the rock.
Because of this I need reference photos of all the sides of the subject being painted on the rock. For example, If I am painting a portrait of a dog and all I have is a side view of the left side of it’s head, I will not know if the other side might have a distinctive marking that, if missing, would not be a true likeness of the animal. This is even more important if the subject has a lot of details.
Custom 3D Recycled Material Sculptures
Custom 3D sculptures made from recycled materials
I believe it is kind of exciting for the donor of the recycled material to be part of the creative process. I know it is exciting for me because I am under pressure to do something creative with this stuff that was destined for the dumpster.
Some of the materials and creations are shown in this gallery.
1. A Star made from scrap lumber from a steeple clock construction site.
2. Empty CD “jewel” cases. Melted into random organic like shapes and placed inside different shaped enclosures.
3. Tile samples from tile store arranged on a shield.
4. Pottery artist’s rejects arranged to look like an animal.s
5. Wood from a chicken coup cut to make an Indian welcome sign.
6. Computer diskettes and hair curlers arranged on different boards.
7. Construction site 2x4’s cut into Stars.
8. Broken pieces of pottery from Arizona Indian territory attached together on a shadow box painting.
9. Old tennis rackets arranged on a board.
10. Parts from an old elliptical exercise machine arranged to look like a steer’s skull.
11. Old hand saws with scenes and emotional statements painted on them.
