    Well, the time has come.

    I'm opening my list again, for anyone who would like me to paint something for them. The list will open on Saturday 18th June at 12:00 noon BST (GMT+1) and remain open until Saturday 25th June at 12:00 noon BST. I will be at Glastonbury Festival then, working for Oxfam, and I won’t have any internet access. When I come home, I’ll then make a selection of paintings I’d like to paint from all the emails I receive between those two dates. Any that don’t make the cut, but I like anyway, will go onto a reserve list in case someone drops out. Don't email me before, I'll ignore it!

    It’s going to be a bit different than last time, in that there are only 20 places available on my Oxfam painting list. This is so I don't get inundated with painting requests, and end up with a waiting list that took over 3 years to complete. I'm going to choose the paintings I do based on how much I like them.

    So, how do you get on the list?

    You email me at canvasandpaints@gmail.com with the following information:

    • Label the subject heading “Oxfam painting”
    • Your name and address.
    • How you found out about my paintings.
    • A link to at least one hi-res image of what you want me to paint, and if possible, a you tube link if it’s from a game (the picture to be in line with the "I won't paint anything violent, exploitative or offensive, and I get to decide that, not you." rule. If in doubt, pick another image.)
    • A commitment from you to donate a minimum of £50 to Oxfam. I will send you a link to the Oxfam Virgin Money Giving website once I have decided to paint you a picture. As soon as I tell you I am ready to start your painting, you will donate the money.
    • A commitment to make a payment into my Paypal account for the costs of canvas, postage and packing, before I start the painting for you. You will have a choice of postage costs, which as well as varying dependent on where you live, will depend on which postal service you opt for. We can talk about your options once I’ve chosen your painting.

    What you will get from me:

    • Once you have a place on the list, I will let you know when to expect your painting.
    • I will paint your picture on either stretched canvas, or canvas board, depending on the size of the image I paint. Most paintings I do are on 40 cm x 50 cm stretched canvas, but that depends on the ratio of height to width of your source image - sometimes I adjust the painting, sometimes I use longer or narrower canvas.
    • If you want a painting larger than 40cm x 50cm, postage and canvas costs will be significantly more, if you want a smaller painting, costs will be less, but I will always let you know costs before I start.
    • I will post regular updates of your painting's progress on canvas and paints, and on Twitter, @lewiepsmummy (of course!) so you can see how it’s getting on.
    • As soon as I have finished your painting, and it has thoroughly dried out, I will post it to you.


    Postage costs will vary; I will wrap each canvas in polystyrene, bubble wrap and brown paper.

    The reason I’m asking for payment up front is a) I can’t afford to have someone not pay me for the postage costs (thankfully, most people have) and b) I want to be sure people really do donate to Oxfam (thankfully, again, most people have). The reason I’ll be sending you the link to make payments to Oxfam is that they’ve not sent me the link yet, and once I have it, I will be able to see if you’ve made a donation before I start your picture.

    Any questions, PM me here.

    Another way to obtain a painting from me is through a paid commission - there's a page about that on canvas and paints.

    So, slight derailment of my thread:

    You'll know if you read stuff here that LewieP's Daddy has lost his job. We're doing OK financially, but something wonderful happened over the weekend - our best friends were going on an amazing holiday with two other friends, but one of the other couple is ill, and they've had to withdraw from the holiday, and have offered it to us, the only cost being flights. Its a 5* villa in Kancal, Turkey. My mum gave us holiday vouchers at Christmas, we didn't know when we'd be able to use them, as we knew about the job situation then. The vouchers almost cover the flight costs. We couldn't pay for the holiday, so I'm painting this picture as a thank you - our BF's friends are very well off, and any thank you gift we bought them they could buy a dozen, but they've not got one of my paintings. They love the place we're going to, so i've found an image to paint, and I'll be doing that over the next couple of weeks. I'll post it in here, just so you can see what I'm doing.
    Normal service will be resumed after then.

    And the painting has arrived! In one piece and looking fantastic. Thank you so much! I'll take a picture once my camera battery isn't dead.

    And I'll donate some money to Oxfam and/or Child's Play quite soon. :)

    I'm really excited to see how that villa painting turns out, LPM. I don't think we've seen you do anything from life, have we?

    Also, major kudos on the interpretation of the Bioshock imagery. In particular I love the face of the Little Sister - it's got a nice embellished feel to it, without being overly cartoony. I don't know if any of that counts as actual art-lingo, but I like what I like.

    Major thumbs up on the last few images, of course.

    Well, I'm back from Glastonbury Festival, it was amazing! Radiohead were special Guests at The Park on Friday night - ended with Fade Out, made it to the last half of U2's set (much prefer Radiohead), then Coldplay on Saturday, and Beyonce last night! It was brilliant! Coldplay are my favourite band, I managed to get to the front of Pyramid stage to watch them - I had to stand for 8 hours, danced for 1 1/2 hours, and not surprisingly, couldn't walk very well, and took 2 hours to walk back to my tent, instead of the normal 45 minutes. It hurt like mad, but was so worth it.
    Anyway, I'm off to Turkey tomorrow afternoon, I'll be taking a painting with me, and if I can work out my friend's I-pad, I'll post an update.

    So, I'm now back from Kalkan - amazing, beautiful, hot, delicious food, wonderful beaches, challenging hills the town is on - and I did some painting while I was there. I'm about to paint for a couple of hours now, so thought I'd better post what I've done already.
    I've been painting the walls, they're still not white enough, so I'm going to paint them a bit more, then I'll start on the brickwork.

    So, I've also got a commission on the go - I've just started it. Its my first ever painting for money for me, I'm slightly stressed by it, but also looking forward to starting it. I'm doing it concurrently with MegaMan001's. I've also realised that I've not posted the new list - I've had a couple of people drop out, so i still have some spaces left if anyone is interested. If so, email me at canvasandpaints@gmail.com.

    Commissions you say! About damn time, if you ask me. You're going to do great, LPM and make some bank while you are doing such amazing work. Win win, I say.

    FF7 is looking absolutely delightful. No worries about spending more time on your commissions over me, I absolutely understand.

    Of course, this plays into my nefarious plot as we inch ever closer to my graduation when I will have an income again and will be able to throw money at you for more paintings.

    I've been back up to Whitehaven again - my auntie with the brain tumour is hanging on, so i took my mum up to see her again. The nursing home is horrid, I glared lots on the first day, things improved by the second day we were there. Its made me very determined about what will happen when my mum eventually starts to die.

    Anyway, I've done some more on the guild Wars painting - I've fixed the sand dunes I wasn't happy with, and have painted the dragon and the bones. Just Kitten and Snake left to paint.

    I painted Aerith's boots in exactly as they appeared on the source image, but they looked dreadful - far too clunky, so I'm going to paint them realistically instead. I'm very tired today, so I'm probably not going to paint today, I'm just going to rest and catch up with CSI instead.

    Take your time, LPM. No rush. Don't want you to burn out over the painting. Hope all is well in the family and enjoy your CSI.

    I am in the business of saving lives.

    I really like the way that sky looks so far. Looks very realistic!

    Let's look death in the face and say, "Whatever, man!"
