Painter / Artist needed for art project (Manassas)

compensation: compensation to be discussed

Looking to commission a painter with some very specific skills, and creative enough to suggest ways to apply those skills to our mixed media art project. This will not be a free-range piece as we have a very specific effect we are looking to achieve.

The artwork is in the form of a collage/mural on wood, large, 6x8’. That part is already being drafted.. The painting is to highlight / show growth and connection between items on the mural, which are books, quotes, and ideas relating to the artist’s intellectual development over time

Our thought is to use some sort of metallic flake in paint or clearcoat to show the growth of an idea. Starting with less flakes or metallic then a gradient towards more. Like an idea flourishing. Also using it in a way to connect different items on the mural as if they were part of a tree of thoughts, one is related to another, etc. We may combine the painting with other media such as LED lights to achieve this effect, but we’ll welcome your thoughts on this process.

In general, we’re open to other ideas on how to accomplish this effect.

I do have a crude mock up of the mural in progress so you can get an idea of the arrangement of things, I can send upon request.

If you have any experience with abstract painting techniques or believe your skillset would be beneficial to this project please contact me with your phone number, email address, and a summary of your background in painting or a resume.

The process would be as follows:
1) You would come to our home where the project is being done to look at our draft mural and make suggestions as to how the above could be accomplished
2) We would agree on a price for your work
3) We would transition the draft into a final
4) You would come back to the house to perform the work on the final version
5) You would be paid your fee
6) This would be a Work For Hire arrangement, so you would not own any rights to the artwork
