Thank you for your interest in the West of Lincoln Project. Only one person is chosen per year to be painted for a featured portrait.  If you submit someone then you will receive an email as confirmation within 5 days. I keep all submissions for future consideration. I am currently looking for funding to continue this work, so I am hoping to begin this next painting by the end of 2018.

You can follow this project on the Facebook Group page to see weekly updates. I am also on Instagram, Twitter and have a monthly newsletter.

Here is another location to submit your VENICE story.
