Thank you for your interest in commissioning me to do a painting for you. Your painting options are endless. Choose a traditional individual or family portrait, a montage of your last family vacation or even your husband and his favorite car or motorcycle. My goal is to work with you to produce a wonderful piece of art that will be enjoyed for generations.
I use photography as reference in my paintings. Providing more than one photo gives me the opportunity to study the subject from many different perspectives. High resolution digital images may be emailed or sent on a CD. Please do not send one-of-a-kind or irreplaceable original photographs. Have them scanned and saved as a high resolution .jpg file that can simply be emailed works best.
Photo Selection/Photo Session
Please contact me if you would like help selecting from your personal photographs or if you are interested in a personalized photo session. My photo sessions can really add to the overall composition by posing subjects for a painting rather than a typical photograph. If providing your own photos for a painting that include multiple items such as a classic car combined with the portrait of the owner, it is best to photograph them separately. Make sure to pay special attention to each photograph’s subject to capture the best composition.
Each painting is produced on museum quality fine art archival paper or canvas and hand signed and dated. Our fine art papers are a matte finish 100% cotton rag and are not only acid-free, lignin, and chlorine free, they are also pH buffered with calcium carbonate for a true archival sheet. We print with a 12 ink printer using HP’s Vivera inks for museum quality reproductions. The HP 12 ink technology incorporates the new Vivera color pigments, including a new four-level black technology so that you receive a final print of uncompromising quality.
