Featured Artist: Paul Ferney Commission Project

ORIGINAL ART
When I first laid my eyes on a landscape by painter, Paul Ferney, click here, I bookmarked his site and made a mental note: plan a trip to California. When I returned, I found the "Let Them Eat Cake," exhibit, click here and wanted to fill our new kitchen with these paintings of chocolate and yellow cakes.





Peillon, France
Last, serendipitously, the timing was perfect as I dropped in, and found that he had just announced spots in a commission project. I knew exactly what to commission: a landscape of a village in southern France, where we had had our second wedding (or "benediction" wedding, as we like to refer to this second European celebration).

Sometimes it's well worth planning ahead. We're now in the US on our summer vacation. One thing on my summer to-do list: take a photo of our first wedding location, (US) in order to commission this missing pair. Is original art something you value, too? What do you think about when you're decorating? I'd love to hear from you.

  1. Paul Ferney is a real gem, so talented and reasonably priced for high-quality, personal art. He painted two pictures of my children at our country house in the Swedish archipelago, which we gave to their father for Christmas. He captured very special moments in the summer based on the photos I emailed him and I am so happy to have done it. They had real personal charm to our wall and are something we will have forever. I highly recommend The Commission Project as well!

  2. Jennifer, your insightful comments are always welcome and I shouldn't be surprised that you've discovered this gem of an artist, too. What a perfect present! I genuinely agree with your comments on Paul's work.
