Commission an Original and Unique Oil Painting


My name is Jon, and I have always been fascinated by the beauty and complexity of nature. As an artist, I draw my inspiration from Mother Nature's endless subject matter and the countless surprises she creates. Whether it's the vibrant colors of a sunset or the intricate patterns of a leaf, I strive to capture the essence of what makes nature so captivating.

In my artwork, I aim to create a sense of place that is both grounded in reality and yet somehow ethereal. By using a mix of traditional and modern painting techniques, I am able to bring my vision to life on canvas. My style is realistic, but with a touch of painterly flair that adds a sense of movement and texture to each piece.

One of my primary goals as an artist is to transport the viewer into the world I have created on canvas. I want them to feel as though they are standing within the scene, surrounded by the beauty and wonder of nature. To achieve this, I pay close attention to the details of each piece, from the way the light falls on a tree to the texture of a rock. By immersing the viewer in the painting, I hope to inspire a deeper appreciation for the natural world and all its wonders.


Vacation Landscape Commission Paintings

One of my most popular client requests is a painting of their favorite vacation destination. I have received requests for paintings of vacation destinations from all over the world. These vacation location paintings are perfect for your vacation home to match the local decor and inspire relaxation. Alternatively, you may want to preserve the memory of your favorite vacation spot year-round in your primary residence.

Childhood & Current Hometown Commission Paintings

Clients often have fond memories of their childhood homes and towns and want to create a painting that captures these nostalgic experiences. With high-quality photos of the childhood home, I can create a beautiful piece that will be treasured. Although these commissions may take a bit longer to plan and produce, the end result is always worth it.


Choosing art for your home is a highly personal decision. You want the art in your home to reflect your taste, your beliefs, and your inspirations. Even considering original artwork says something about you, as it shows that you care about originality and the unique expression that each piece brings.

My original artwork is painted on fine linen panels that I have personally prepared for each of my works, using professional-grade high-quality paint that will last a lifetime. Many of my original paintings are studies that have started from sketches, photographs, and/or paintings done "plein air" on location. Each painting is unique and captures my interpretation of the scene at that location and at that moment in time.

Thank you for considering my original artwork. I hope that you find the perfect work of art for your home. If you don't see what you're looking for, please do not hesitate to contact me about a commissioned painting just for you, a one-of-a-kind piece of your favorite place.

The work quality was even better than the picture. Delivery was prompt and well packaged. Jon even included a frame with the painting. Couldnā€™t have asked for a better experience when ordering a piece of art online.

John S. - NY

This painting of the ocean, rocks, palm tree, and sunset is so amazing! Every paintĀ stroke shows so much detail including the leaves on the palmĀ tree, the green bushes, the mountains, the water coming over the rocks, and the clouds in the sky. I will cherish this forever!

Sharon W. - OH

I commissioned a painting by Jon Krider for my wife's birthday. The process was well-planned and allowed my vision to come to life. Jon is a perfectionist and knows how to bring a painting to life. When my wife opened her gift, she immediately cried as she understood the meaning behind the painting. Seeing the painting in person left me speechless. 5 stars.
