Counting every person I’ve known, Lucas is the most dedicated to creative art and also the very most talented.
— John Janda, author of American Spirit, b. 1940
[Novak’s painting] ‘October’ is a lush, amber-toned, palette knife-swathed oil in which one might find a dusky landscape of a forest, cabin and lake, but will certainly find an abundance of skill with color and form.
— Stacy Davies, O.C. Weekly

Commissions on all subjects are available. Lucas has mastered his own unique styles, from abstract to figurative to hybrids of each, so whether you want an intellectual work or abstraction, or a portrait painting of someone special, contact lucas at for more free information.

NO COMMITMENT: Lucas will make every effort to create a work of art that will take your breath away. He is confident that this will be case, so after the initial nonrefundable deposit is made to cover preparation and materials, if you are unsatisfied with the finished product, you are not obligated to purchase it.

COMMISSION FEE: Generally, $350 per square foot. Example: a painting measuring 18” x 24” is 3 square feet = $1,050, which includes the deposit. *Deposits vary depending on each particular project; fees may vary with unique demands such as sizing, time deadlines, etc.


Renting art is the perfect alternative to purchasing it. You may be unsure about which piece will look best in a particular space. This rental program lets you try out different pieces without committing to the entire purchase price. It is a perfect way for people on a budget to enjoy the art while also refreshing the appearance of their space with new pieces at the end of each term. 

NO COMMITMENT: Rent any available artwork for three months. Renew if you wish or return the work at the end of the term. 

TRY BEFORE YOU BUY: If at any point during the term of the rental you wish to purchase the artwork outright, 50% of the total rental fees already paid for the piece will be credited to the purchase price.  

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA RENTALS ONLY: While Lucas Novak loves and appreciates all of his domestic and international collectors, artwork rentals are available to businesses and residents in southern California only.
