I want to paint you into my next big artwork!

Would you like to have your portrait painted by a contemporary artist?  I need photos of people to paint for a big project I’m working on!  If you want to appear in my artwork, you can sign up on my Patreon page (a place where you can support artists you like on a monthly basis).  Even if you contribute less than it costs to buy a cup of coffee, I will paint your face into a big, surreal scene!  All patrons will get a digital photo of the finished artwork, and a close-up photo of the part that has your face in it.

This will be the inspiration for this artwork: Hieronymus Bosch, The Garden of Earthly Delights, oil on oak panels, 205.5 cm × 384.9 cm (81 in × 152 in), Museo del Prado, Madrid


[Still here?  Have some more details:]

This is a call for muses, and I hope you will all participate!

Would you like to be featured in a painting by a contemporary artist?  I’m searching for 200 faces to include in my next large-scale oil painting, and I need permission to use your face.  I have 21 faces so far, and I hope yours will soon be among them!

All participants get a digital photo close-up of the area where they’re featured.  You can use it as a social media profile photo, author photograph, or anything else you like.

If you would like me to paint you as a character in my next big painting, you can choose how much you want to contribute.  The average is $5, but it can even be as low as $1!  Every single dollar helps keep me in the studio, but the most important thing for me is that I have people involved in my creative practice.  All patrons at every level of support will be featured in this work of art!  I also send my patrons lots of digital gifts and inside the studio updates, as a thank you for being part of my process.

The next time you buy a friend a coffee or tip a waiter, imagine if a small part of that was a tip used to encourage an art project.  It’s the same thing, except that instead of preparing your food, I’ll spend time painting your picture into an epic, surreal, large-scale painting!  In this artwork, you’ll be on the side of the heroic defenders, beautifully protecting creativity in a surreal scene.  It will eventually be presented in a solo art show called “The War on Imagination”.

To get your face, or the face of a loved one into this painting, join the project HERE.
