The Commission Project is launching today for the holiday season! The Commission Project is an affordable way to get a commissioned painting for your family. We do this around the holidays because it makes the perfect gift. The way it works is you purchase a commission right here and choose a frame color, next send a photo by September 9th to firstname.lastname@example.org for approval, then wait by your mailbox for your painting. All paintings will be shipped framed and ready to hang no later than December 1st. You can check out more sample pictures and see more information right here.
This is the fourth year but it all started out because Paul would get so many inquiries in commissioned paintings. But because of all the time spent going back and forth the price ended up being more than people could pay. We started thinking about it and realized if we could streamline all the details like size and frame type then we could offer a commissioned painting at half it’s normal cost. And that is how the Commission Project was born. This usually sells out quickly so act soon!
I always hear people say they would love to purchase a painting but it is out of their price range. So a few years ago Paul and I discussed different ideas and we came up with the idea of The Commission Project. For a flat price of $240 you can commission your own custom portrait. There are a limited amount of spots available at this discounted rate (they are normally $450) and in the past it has sold out in just a few days. The process is really simple, just purchase a painting right here and then email your photo in–then wait by your mailbox for your finished painting. They will be shipped no later than December 1st. These make great little presents, just in time for the holidays!
So if you need a portrait of your dog or baby or lover…or a painting of your childhood home, your family car, or your wedding shoes, now is your chance. Click here for more details, photo submission requirements, more sample paintings and to purchase.
PS: A lot of people have asked for it, so this is the first year a bigger size is being offered in addition to the standard size.
Paul painted this small series of Paris storefronts last year. I love how they look close up. They are available for another few days online before he sends them off to a gallery, so get ‘em while they’re hot.
Paul painted this series of little Paris paintings over the summer and just offered them for sale today. They come framed and ready to hang (and make beautiful presents!) A lot of these are from our neighborhood so they make me nostalgic. PS: For Christmas delivery they must be purchased by December 14th.
Today is a fun day. For those who don’t know my husband is an oil painter. His new site launched today and it is beautiful. He was an Art Director the first ten years of his career and I’m so proud of him and the transition the last year or two to be a full time painter. Really, I am his biggest fan. Go here to see more.
