The portrait begins with a meeting of the artist and customer at which time the size, price and mood of the painting are decided. Some elements to take into consideration are:

·       where will the portrait hang
·       size
·       overall color scheme of clothing and background
·       theme of the painting, i.e.:  a casual, relaxed setting, or a more formal look.

All portraits are created from photos, especially where children are concerned. You do not need to have professional photos, but your snapshots must be clear and large enough to work from. Individual shots of two or more people can be combined into one painting.

‘Sweet Dreams’ are monochromatic drawings of your baby or young child, with or without a favourite toy, while they are sleeping. These drawings are done from your photos, which can be emailed to me. They are typically rendered on grey Ingres paper and may have one light touch of color as seen in the blue tint of the eye of the toy in the sample.

They are unframed and offered for a special price of only $500. Price is for one child.

Size is approximately 14″ x 18″.
