A fine quality portrait is perhaps the most treasured gift a family can give itself. It will command a place of honor in your home and in the homes of future generations. I can create that treasured heirloom for you. I enjoy celebrating the uniqueness of each individual I paint.
The portrait process begins with the artist working closely with families in a relaxed photo session to capture the best expression, lighting and setting for the portrait. If a photo session is not possible because of distance, I can work from your photos through mail or e-mail correspondence. Paintings can also be created from old family photos.
Using the finest art materials, I bring color, patterns of light, and expressions together to create a captivating likeness of your loved one in a beautiful, unique work of art. You will be given the opportunity to offer suggestions to fully capture the likeness of the individual.
The images are close to life-size to enhance the life-like quality of the portrait. Each painting varies according to the composition of the painting and the needs of the client.
A typical portrait may be completed in 4 to 6 weeks. Consideration is given for special occasion needs. Prices are very reasonable and vary according to size, media, number of subjects, and background. A deposit is due at the signing of the contract. The balance is paid upon completion of the portrait. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
