STEVE RUDE COMMISSIONS ANNOUNCEMENT
The Dude is pleased to announce that the much sought after commission list is finally reopened for orders after finishing up the current list. Orders can be placed at www.steverude.com/commissions.
But wait....what's that?...OMG, the prices have increased!?!?!
WHAT'S UP WITH THAT?
Fellow Rude fans, after several years of doing commissions for pennies on the dollars and being able to commission a custom watercolor for drastically less than the price of the finished paintings, the Dude and Gino have made the hard decision to finally increase the prices.
After taking nearly 2 weeks to complete a $500 watercolor while putting aside pressing new Nexus pages, it was determined that something had to give and it was not to be buying groceries, gas, or the Sillies dental check-ups.
FEAR NOT--PENNY AUCTIONS ARE BACK!
Can't afford a custom commission piece?? No problemo! While you're saving up your dollars for that special piece we are once again offering EBAY PENNY ACTIONS! Original pieces by Steve starting at only 1 penny with no reserve. Look for these starting on Tuesday's and ending on Sunday's.
MARY JANE WATSON AS THE HARVEST QUEEN...
Shown above is a Mary Jane Watson watercolor painting as some kind of goddess of the harvest. That’s right. That’s what the guy wanted me to paint for his commission. He said the idea for this piece was based on a vintage poster from his hometown in Ohio that seemed to get too little exposure for the fine piece of mural art that it is, and if I, the humble Dude, could do my “take” on it. Well, as you can see from the reference of the actual mural, I did my usual “way-different” version from the actual painting he supplied me with. Typical.
ABOVE AND BEYOND
I think everyone who has received commissions from Steve in the past will agree that Steve goes above and beyond with his commissions. If you're not completely satisfied then we'll give you a full refund or Steve will redo the piece. This gives him the artistic freedom to alter the request, and the customer the right to say he liked the original idea better.
