 Adopt a Painting "Peaceful Afternoon" by Santoleri
“Peaceful Afternoon” by N. Santoleri

Adopt a painting: is a unique idea that I founded for my unfinished pieces.  These pieces have beautiful potential.  They are often cast aside due to commissions, prior commitments or other needs that arise.  This is where you, the inspiration, comes in.

Usually when an idea comes to mind, I draw a sketch.  When times are favorable I am able to create a finished drawing. With some of them I aspire to create a finished painting, but due to time and financial restraints, that is not always the case.  Their potential is what encouraged me to start the idea of adopting a painting.

When you adopt a painting, this masterpiece becomes yours.  You will be able to watch an orphaned piece come to life in the painting in progress section.  As I would usually charge a gallery commission fee, this would be waived in the case of adoption.  You would be discounted approximately 1/3 off the usual price of my pieces.

Photos  Here are some dormant pieces with an imaginable final product.  You could be the reason they come to life.  Adopting a painting is quite fulfilling.  I hope you will consider this unique concept.  You pick the adoption date within reason and the painting is yours.  In addition, if you envision a sketch that I have done and would love to see if flourish into a painting, let me know. 

These are examples of drawings that I already painted in this manner:
