Art of the American West
Commissions

I would love to do a special custom created painting for you. I have over 6,000 amazing photographs to use as reference from 1800's Western reenactments, Native American powwow dances and regalia, Western roundup events, rodeos, ranch scenes, mountain men rendezvous, and wildlife nature scenes. These are important resources gathered over years of travel and research. I guarantee that you would see images that you have never dreamed of and they would spark some excitement for a painting in your home. For example, as a commission client, you might see a cowgirl photo that you like and prefer to have her in a mountain scene with a dramatic sky and add your dog. Perfect! I can combine images to create a final painting. If you have an idea that I don't have reference for, I would hire models and set it up. Of course you would allow me some artistic leeway, but all the elements would be there. It's always exciting to see the final product.

Original paintings and drawings, as well as giclée prints, by Randy Galloway are in private and corporate collections throughout the United States. Original paintings can be commissioned from as small as 5" x 7" to
as large as 6' x 10'. I am currently working on a seven foot wide commission.

Prices are determined by the size, the number of complex elements, whether you want a frame and the cost of the frame, and the time schedule. I usually accept half up front to begin a painting, but I am flexible on terms.

The Wind Master's Skill                                (commission)  oil on canvas, 48" x 48"
    
This is an example of a large commission project. The client collected bird paintings and wanted something unique for their Scottsdale home that featured a bird but told a story and included some Native Americans in a high desert setting with saguaro cactus. I did some research and came up with this concept of a Harris' Hawk being released to catch prey. I used six different reference photos for this piece. It was a challenging, fun piece to work on.
   
Takers                                                             (commission)   oil on linen, 16" x 20"
    
This recent commission project was created for a gift. The client wished to have an original painting created for their grandson who was graduating UCLA in Film. He wrote, directed and produced a short Western film called Takers. I used a still from the movie and put his portrait in the sky as the director overseeing his film project. The grandparents surprised him with the finished painting at his graduation. A real keepsake!
