MAX GOES TO CARNEGIE HALL!
UPDATE: Max made his goal! Thank you for your support. If you'd still like a print, we can make those for you. We are also both open for commissions.
I have some big news. My son Max found out that he won an American Vision Medal from the 2017 National Scholastic Art and Writing Competition for his painting "A Study On Norman Rockwell." With this comes national recognition, his artwork will be part of a touring exhibition for two years and he gets to be recognized in June in New York City at none other than Carnegie Hall!
This is huge news, to say the least. The problem is, we don't have the funds to fly NYC and stay for the ceremony in June.
That's where you come in! I am currently taking commissions to help raise enough money for us to buy three tickets to NYC (Max, myself and his mom) and also to cover the expenses of staying 3 nights in downtown Manhattan. Our goal is $3000.
If I can sell 28 full color D and D commissions, that should be enough to make our goal. Or if I can sell a combination of original sketches and other commissions, I should be able to do it. We would need to raise enough money by March 31 to reserve our tickets and our hotel. So time is a factor in this commission sale.
We are also selling high quality giclee prints of Max's award-winning work including "A Study On Norman Rockwell" that won the American Vision Medal.
Please consider commissioning me for some original art in the next few weeks so I can make this happen. I'm trying to show Max that you can make a living selling art and that he is well on a path to not only being recognized for his art, but also getting compensated for it.
Thanks so much for reading this and also thank you for supporting original art!
Please consider purchasing one of these original commissions to help us meet our goal. You can also contact me directly about doing a commission that is not on this list. Thank you so much!
