The Commission Project of Paul Ferney

About a year ago I came across an artist by the name of Paul Ferney and his Commission Project through the blog of his wife at Oh Happy Day.  I really love his style and the way he handles the oil on a canvas so when his next available Commission Project came up, I knew I wanted to commission a painting of my late father.

The process is simple.  Make the payment his website and then email (or mail) him the photograph you’d like him to render.  In my mind this painting will become a family heirloom.  I chose something that I would ultimately love to have but I had intended from the get go to give to my mother as a gift.  The photograph I used is one of my dad in the 70’s, newly married to my mom and perhaps before I was born or when I was still just a year or two old.

This is the photo I emailed to Mr. Ferney:

And here is the amazing final painting that Paul Ferney created:

Here is a close-up so you can see the texture of the paint:

As you can imagine, I am beyond happy with how this turned out.  If you are interested, I beleive he has another Commission Project going right now with just a few spots left that’s due to ship in time for Mother’s Day.
