Default Custom commission oil painting (not soliciting)

Hey all,

A couple of weeks ago I came across this post on Reddit. I started following the artist on Instagram and noticed that her commission rates are actually quite reasonable.


Long story short, she's just getting started on a commission of my 914. I'm not sure how much she'll share of the work-in-progress, but wanted to share it here in case anyone wants to follow. It looks like she's done a number of P-cars before, but never a 914.

EDIT: Mine will be much smaller than the one shown above.

I'm giddy! And had to share somewhere, since I haven't told the wife yet...

I like the SL. You might think twice about letting your wife meet the artist, though...

Pretty sure most women are okay seeing/ meeting other women.
