I have just finished the above portrait commission and it was such a wonderful experience all around. It was really fun to get to know this family through the process of making the painting. I feel like I did an important service for this family in capturing their boys in a time they will soon pass through. The making of this painting became an important event for the family, one I suspect they will never forget.
Having a portrait painted is both archaic and totally cutting edge at the same time
Having a portrait painted is in some ways like stepping back in time. When you have a photo taken it is over quite quickly but painting a portrait takes me about three weeks to complete and includes one or two drawing sessions. This gives me an opportunity to get to know the person I am painting which is an important part of the process.
The cost of a 20x24 inch painting is $1000.00
This may seem expensive at first but you must remember that this is an investment. Art does not depreciate in value like most everything else you spend your money on. Art also makes our homes and place of business more beautiful and more livable.
