The Commission Project

VW bug convertible painting Paul Ferney

Great news! Paul Ferney, my brother-in-law, is doing a another round of The Commission Project just in time for Mother’s Day. You send him a photo and he’ll make a painting of it, frame it, and ship it to you. One flat fee. Extra fun: he’ll be doing all the painting in Paris!

Such a perfect gift for Mom or Grandma. You could send any image you like — a favorite home, a sentimental object, the beloved family beagle — anything. I hear there are less than 15 commissions left, so if you want one, I’d suggest reserving it right away.

that’s so cool! My friend Angela ( does the same thing, but she prefers to paint crazy funny pictures of people! She painted our guinea pigs, who were sitting in a cocktail glass (!
