Portrait Sketch Gift Certificates
Customized Gift Certificates are available for silent auctions for a variety of charities. The gift certificates are personalized to your event and can be redeemed for an 8x10 One Color Portrait Sketch (Including Mat and Free Shipping) or a $100 discount when commissioning a portrait through The Dominic White Studio, LLC at OilPastelPortraits.com.
On occasion I will work with a charitable organization to create artwork customized to a specific fund-raising event. The subject of the artwork is chosen in cooperation with the event and charity organizers to maximize the fundraising potential.
The artwork is then commissioned at a discounted price I reserve only for non-profit organizations.
Typically there will be a minimum bid set at the auction just above the commission price. If the artwork does not meet it's minimum bid it can be used in a later fundraising campaign such as an online raffle.
When commissioning an original piece of art for a fundraising event, the organizers should have an idea of what size artwork and what kind of subject matter performs best at their auctions and how much money that subject matter and size typically raises.
