The Commission Project

Most of you know my husband is an oil painter. Last year we started The Commission Project as a way to make art a little more accessible. We’ve decided to offer it again this year. If you don’t know about it here is how it works. First, you purchase a painting right here for $240. That price includes a 5×7 commissioned painting, with a frame (you choose the color), and includes the price of shipping. Next you email the photo you’d like painted to Paul for approval. Last, you sit tight next to your mailbox and early December you’ll receive your painting. All paintings will be shipped by December 1st, just in time for the Holidays! These paintings usually sell for $450 in a gallery, by offering it like this we are able to cut the usual costs so you get an excellent deal on an original piece of art. Space is very limited and last year we sold out in just a few days so if you are thinking about it don’t wait!

    I commissioned a portrait of my husband’s late dog for Father’s Day and it was amazing! He was very touched and the painting is really beautiful. I definitely recommend doing this!
