Custom Map Paintings

Let me create a map painting designed just for you with a map from a specific location and imagery of your choice! Also makes a sweet gift for meaningful occasions such as weddings, anniversaries and welcoming a new baby.  

THE HOW TO:

Let me know the LOCATION of the map including any special spots you do not want painted over. I am happy to email you a sample map to make sure it's just the right spot and to make sure you like it before I start - just let me know you want to preview the map in your email. I usually use maps from the USGS site and can zoom in on areas to make it more interesting. The maps tend to be more general and won't list all the roads or might be older, but are very pretty. Only one map per painting. International locations can take me a little longer to find, but I'll be in touch if I think there will be a delay. 

Tell me what DESIGN you like. Be as specific or vague as you'd like. Check out images in my paintings, prints and card sections and let me know the names of some you are drawn too. I like to work from designs I currently do, but if you have a specific design or image in mind send me a message and we can chat about it.  

To see examples of some of my past commissions view my Custom Map Painting Examples page.

Email me at rachelaustinart@gmail.com to start and let me know SIZE, LOCATION, and DESIGN. Sizes and prices below. 

THE THEN WHAT:

I'll send an email to say hello and go over the details to make sure I am creating a painting you are going to love. Payment can be made once the painting is finished or prepay on Etsy. The painting will then take me 4-6 weeks with an image being emailed to you once I'm finished. Your painting will be framed on a simple wood box frame that I make and will be ready to hang. The painting is titled from a location on the map, signed and dated.  

Painting ships USPS Priority Mail or UPS and can be gift wrapped for no extra fee. Prices below do not include shipping. 

If for whatever reason you don't like the painting then I will make it right by adjusting what I can or with a refund, but I think you are going to really love it. 

Please note the painting will be textured - it is on purpose and not a wrinkle in the map. I create this look by layering over the map a thick clear acrylic with a painters knife to give the painting depth and to seal in the map.  Then that layer is coated with a layer of oil paint to soften up the map in the background but still make it somewhat readable. After that layer is dry I am ready to paint the design in ink and oil paint. I love the way the layers build up and hope you do too.  

Looking forward to painting for you!

Rachel
