    Please feel free to contact Oksana and I will give you a preliminary quote with no obligation. When you commission your mural a non-refundable deposit of $500, fully applicable to the final balance, is required to place you on the artist's waiting list and to secure the agreed-upon price for one year. I will talk with you about your space, your design and your budget goals, and provide you with a firm price in writing. Fifty percent of the balance is due prior to commencement of the mural, with the remainder due in full upon satisfactory completion.  Since the time involved is partly based on site conditions, I will require photographs and details on the site prior to making her estimate. If upon her arrival the site is substantially different from its representation, the quote will be adjusted accordingly. If you request substantial changes or additions to the mural or portrait as designed and approved, additional work will be charged at the hourly rates shown below. For work performed at your site you'll be charged for travel expenses and reasonable accommodations.

Time is billed to the tenth of the hour. There is no charge for initial conference and preliminary quote. Acquisition of materials, subsequent conferences, and travel up to a maximum of eight hours per day are charged as administrative expenses. If upon the artist's arrival the site is not ready for commencement of work an hourly administrative rate will be charged, up to a maximum of eight hours per day, until work can be started. Materials, travel expenses, and shipping are passed on at cost. Where appropriate, sales tax is charged on materials, but not on time. Mileage is not charged. There is no charge for extra time spent at the artist's discretion on the design as approved. A fully itemized invoice is presented upon completion of work and is due upon receipt. In the event a commission is suspended or cancelled, the client will be billed for all work performed to that point.

Designs, sketches, and samples remain the property of the artist unless otherwise arranged. The artist retains the right to photograph and/or publish her work. The privacy of clients will be protected unless the client desires to be credited.

Murals can be created in various sizes and can accommodate all monetary budgets. I can paint murals directly on walls, floors, ceilings, buildings or anywhere your imagination desires. I can also create murals on canvas so the original work of art can be as mobile as its owner.

Newsflash 1 The still lifes and trompe-l'oeil artworks featured in "Feast the Eye, Fool the Eye" and "Visual Deceptions" could be thought of as the precursor to the concept of "virtual reality." Trompe-l'oeil paintings have been a European favorite since birds were tempted to fly through the painted windows of Pompeii. The genre became a highly-developed specialty in Rembrandt's time, when artists competed with each other to see who could fool viewers into thinking their depicted objects were real.

Newsflash 3 Oksana is a mural artist who has enjoyed painting murals in schools, offices, homes, restaurants, churches and many other institutions. In her 20 years of mural painting, Oksana has painted literally hundreds of murals. A long list of references is available upon request.

Newsflash 2 Painting murals is much different from painting smaller works. A person is completely overwhelmed and absorbed by the painting itself. Much like those who do large scale sculpture who I've talked with, the scale of the work makes me think of myself more as a illustionist than an artist. Painting murals is somewhere between fine art and house painting. It's hard to get too snooty when you're up several stories on a scaffold with the wind blowing twenty-five miles per hour, covered in paint and eating lunch out of a paper bag.
