Yes, please: The Commission Project

August 23, 2011

I saw this over on Oh Joy! yesterday and completely flipped. The Commission Project is the brainchild of husband and wife team Jordan (of Oh Happy Day) and Paul Ferney, oil paint artist. You send in a photo and a several weeks later you’ll get this…

from this….

Several months ago, I set out to do a similar project with one of my favorite pictures from our wedding last year. It was taken by Evan’s iPhone, post wedding in our hotel room. We were standing in front of the bathroom mirror reflecting on the fact that we were married when he snapped this

I loved it so much that I wanted to see it as a painting so I started this photoshop painting but, in true Paola fashion, never had the time to finish.

I’d love to see it in oil. The Commission Project accepts a limited amount of commissions per session so I’m hoping I can get it in on time. If you’d like a custom oil painting of your own photo, check out The Commission Project website, space sells out fast! xoxo!

    That is a neat idea. I love that picture of you and your husband–it is so charming. You should really finish it, it is so adorable.

    I love what you were able to get done with the photoshop painting! A sweet photo especially with your explanation of what you guys were thinking about when Evan took the pic!
