A sketch shall be produced for the fee of $500, payable upon signature of the contract.
The final work shall be produced for the fee of $2000.
If the physical work can be sold by the artist and accepted by an art gallery, the commissioned image does not need to be purchased as an original work by the person making the request.
If the physical work cannot be sold by the artist and is not likely to be accepted by an art gallery in the case of a pictorial style that differs too much from the artist's other works, the commissioned image must be purchased at market price as an original work by the person making the request. The original painting thus becomes the property of the person making the request.
