A chance to win your own commissioned painting by Ryan J. Flynn

Becoming a professional artist is a very expensive and time consuming process. Ryan Flynn is striving to produce works that will help him meet that goal of being a full time artist, but needs a helping hand with materials and equipment.

This raffle is intended to help Ryan raise money to pay for a variety of things that will allow him to push past the limitations of what he can do in his current studio. As of right now, Ryan is limited to smaller canvases, and does not have a set up to do still-lifes or hire models.

Items this will help buy are: A new large studio easel, a used Terrero Taboret, oil paints, canvases, brushes and a small studio lighting set so that he can hire models and set up still lifes.

Ryan will also be donating 10% of the raffle earnings to the Charity Endowment Fund of Ancient York Lodge No.89 in Nashua, NH to assist the lodge in helping out the community.

"I'm not the type of person who just asks for hand outs, I want to at least give someone the chance to win something. So I came up with the idea to auction off 2 commissions. One large framed oil painting and a smaller watercolor painting. I figured that this would be a more personal prize for the winner.

Imagine your wedding photo as an oil painting, or a photo of your children, mother or grandparents, or a landscape painting of your favorite place in the world.... the possibilities are endless, and it will be such a personal gift for you or someone else."

Thank you all for helping me out with this, I am getting so close to being able to really start producing the art I want to create.

Thank you all again, and good luck!"
