Commission Your Painting

“I just want to let you know that I got my painting and I’m so in love with it.  My horse is my best friend and it captures his personality so well. I’m literally in tears and so grateful.  Thank you for  taking time out of your life to share your talent with me through my pony!  Take care and I’ll definitely be ordering more!” – Astraia D.

Choose From 4 Styles of Custom Wood Paintings: 

  1. Rectangular (Largest options)
  2. Single Plank (Very popular)
  3. Live Edge Oval (New!)
  4. Bridle Rack (Horseshoe hooks)

Note: Samples posted are horses. However, any animal, wildlife, or landscape can be commissioned on these sizes (or a custom size of your choice). Thank you.


1. Rectangular:

These come in 4 sizes.  These are assembled by hand using multiple planks of wood.  We carefully plane, cut, and assemble using high end pocket joints & non-visible screws (these canvases are furniture quality and will not separate and show virtually no seams).

We then continue the process with sanding, staining & Tung oiling for a beautiful finish.  Your painting is then created in fine oils, signed, and sealed with lacquer. It does include a hanger on the back & comes with a thank you letter & care instructions from me.

Choose from 4 sizes:

X-Large: 36″ x 27.5″ | $950
Large: 30″ x 22″ | $750
Medium: 24″ x 15.5″ | $550
Small: 18″ x 11″ | $350

Reserve any size with a $199 deposit. (We’ll confirm size & subject via email):

2. Single Planks:

These come in 8 sizes and are really beautiful for interesting perspectives like the very popular half horse face.

We use high quality wood, then cut, sand, stain & Tung oil your plank. Your painting is then created in fine oils, signed, and sealed with lacquer. It does include a hanger on the back & comes with a thank you letter & care instructions from me.

4. Bridle Racks:

Your bridle rack painting is assembled using several planks of wood. We hand choose the wood, plane each board for straightness, join them with a special technique (virtually no seams), sand, stain & Tung oil them.

The horse shoe hooks are hand welded here in house, and I create the painting using oils and a finishing coat of lacquer. A hanger is included on the back so it’s ready to hang when it arrives home with you.

Choose from 3 sizes:

Large: 30″ x 22″ | 3 hooks: $850
Medium: 24″ x 15.5″ | 2 hooks: $650
Small: 18″ x 11″ | 1 hook: $450

Notes & Info:

I do offer bulk discounts, monthly installments & sizes & shapes not listed here. Please email me at artist@alpha-mare.com.

After you reserve:
You will get an email from me (artist@alpha-mare.com) to confirm your order. We will discuss your piece, and I will give you an estimated completion date, and you will get photos of your finished piece to make sure you love it before the remaining balance is due, minus your deposit.


Common Questions:

Do you paint other animals?  Yes. You may choose from any of the sizes above and simply request a different animal when you receive my confirmation email.

Do I need the perfect photo?  Absolutely not.  Most people typically send me several photos for reference, and I create a unique painting.  As long as I can see your horse’s features, coloring, and unique markings over multiple photos, I can use those to create a wonderful, unique painting for you.  The horse does not even have to be posed in the position he’ll be in for the painting, although if he is, that’s certainly nice!

What if I’d like to have multiple subjects in one painting?  I am happy to do that.  Please add an additional $100 per animal, or $200 per human, in each painting, regardless of size.  This will be added to your final balance.

Get in Touch with Me:

I am happy to chat with you before & during the painting process.  The best 3 ways to reach me are email, Facebook, and texting/calling.  I am usually available all day and in the evenings, but it may take me a bit to respond, as I’m usually painting. Thank you!
