Having command over a variety of visual languages, RAS. specializes in Commissions, both private and corporate, which is the way Kings and Queens do it. So should you... the most rewarding and exciting way to create and purchase artwork. We do it together.
Because work is commissioned beforehand, you get to choose your palette, size, subject, budget range and essentially be involved as much as you desire.
HOW TO COMMISSION
Easy. Just give us a ping via email or social media, tell us what you're thinking and we can have a creative session together about it.
Pricing is simple. We work off of a baseline figure that gives RAS. enough time per sq.ft to, as Ray Charles used to say, Make It Do What It Do.

TYPES OF COMMISSIONS
The Most Simple
"Hey RAS., I'm looking for This kind of painting to fit This space for This price range... you have anything?" So simple. If you're able to send a photo of your space, we'll superimpose some samples on it, and volley back and forth until we find the winner.
Commissions from Photograph
RAS. paints from photo more than any other way, finding great joy in reinterpretting an existing image. It can be a landscape, still-life or person... the subject doesn't matter so much. The magic is in the work.
16x20 inch. A perfect spot to start collecting. We suggest a simple landscape from photo, or perhaps and abstract portrait.
If you have blank wall or space you need the perfect work for, send us a photo of it. Include some of the surrounding decor so we can get a good sense of things and we'll volley back samples.
Whole Home or Office
There aren't many Artists available who can fill and entire complex with professional work diverse enough to feel like it's multiple creators. For some odd reason RAS. is one of them.
Corporate works are not supposed to say anything, but they can and do, emote. The can create, foster or support any intended atmosphere. Power. Creativity. Globality. Elegance. Sophistication. Revolution. Rebellion. Integrity. Innovation. Perhaps something different for different spaces. We had one CEO that wanted everyone who came into his office to feel uncomfortable. Done.
'When someone walks into this room, what do you want them to feel?' That's essentially where this one begins and ends, yet we still have to wade through inifinty to find the right work. Well studied in how visual languages affect the psyche, this type of commission is always enjoyed.
If you're going to live or work in a space for large portions of your life, it would seem intelligent to honor that space. Because of it's infinite nature, in order to move efficiently within the decorative processes, it's good to know your budget ranges beforehand here.
