The Commission Deposit is required for the commission process to proceed.
In the event that the Collector does not wish to purchase the commissioned artwork, the Collector may refuse. In that case, the Artist will retain the refused artwork and the non-refundable deposit. You are under no obligation to purchase the painting if you aren't happy with the end result. The invoice originally paid (50% of the total cost) can count towards store credit in my shop, but is nonrefundable. Once the FINAL invoice (the last 50% of the total cost) is paid, no refunds, shop credit, or exchanges are given.
