Representational oil painting, specializing in heirloom portraits
A commissioned portrait is a timeless heirloom. It can catch the fleeting moments of youth, honor a family member, or acknowledge a career achievement.
The process of creating a portrait is relaxed and fun. Photos are taken and preliminaries are done to capture the essence of the sitter. A photo/painting session takes approximately one hour. Several poses are presented and a favorite is chosen by you. Creating likeness is a passion. The finished piece is a combination of your original vision and the artist's technique.
Fees are determined by size and the number of people in the painting. High quality portrait linen is used for commissions. Portraits take approximately 3 to 5 months to finish. Framing is also available.
