THINK NOW ABOUT ARRANGING FOR A SPECIAL FAMILY PORTRAIT - OIL ON CANVAS - FOR A SPECTACULAR CHRISTMAS GIFT. SEND ME A GROUP PHOTO OF THE FAMILY (SNAPSHOT OR CHURCH DIRECTORY PICTURE OR PROFESSIONAL PORTRAIT) . PREFFERED FACIAL SHOTS CAN BE SUBSTITUTED INTO THE GROUP FOR ANY 'NOT YOUR BEST LOOK' PEOPLE WITHIN THE GROUP. CLOTHING COLOR CAN BE CHANGED TO HOLIDAY COLORS OR TO HARMONIZE WITH THE ROOM WHERE THE PORTRAIT WILL RESIDE. BACKGROUNDS ARE 'BRUSHED/BLENDED' IVORY - THE MOST FLATTERING - OR CAN BE A DIFFERENT PASTEL BY ARRANGEMENT.
OTHER FREQUENT SUBJECTS ARE WHOLE BODY DOGS AND CATS, (PETS OF ALL KINDS) . THIS $99 AD IS FOR A BASE CHARGE ON UP TO A 30' X 48' CANVAS WITH A SINGLE FACE. ADDITIONAL FACES ARE $50 EACH, (HUMAN OR PET) AND BODIES OR PARTIAL BODIES ARE ALSO $50. (NECK, COLLAR AND PARTIAL SHOULDER ARE INCLUDED WITH THE FACE AT NO CHARGE) .
GUIDELINE: ONE FACE ON 24X36 SIZE CANVAS IS LARGER THAN LIFE AND HAS PLENTY OF IVORY SPACE AROUND IT. (SEE THE SILVER-HAIRED MAN WITH BEARD. ) TWO FACES ARE PERFECT ON THIS SIZE CANVAS (SEE THE EXAMPLES OF THE COUPLE WEARING BLUE OR THE SMALL CHILDREN WEARING AQUA IN BEACHSAND) . THERE IS ROOM FOR FAMILY PORTRAITS ON THIS SIZE, BUT BE AWARE THAT, AS WITH A PHOTO, THE MORE PEOPLE IN THE PORTRAIT, THE SMALLER EACH BECOMES WITHIN THE COMPOSITION. (MORE THAN 3 FACES SHOULD PERHAPS GO TO 30X48. ) YOU CAN EMAIL ME ABOUT THE DETAILS AND IDEAS FOR YOUR PROPOSED PROJECT; I AM OPEN TO DISCUSSING FEASIBLITIES BACK AND FORTH.
EMAIL FOR QUOTES ON SMALLER OR LARGER SIZES (UP TO 4'X8') OR WITH ANY QUESTIONS. PRODUCTION TIME (THIS TIME OF YEAR) FOR THIS SIZE PAINTING (30'X48') IS USUALLY A COUPLE MONTHS. I ACCEPT A LIMITED AMOUNT OF ORDERS AT ONE TIME TO CONTROL PROMPTNESS.
The larger canvases are shipped rolled into a large diameter tube for safety and economy of shipping. Any art supply, craft chain or frame shop can place the portrait on wooden stretcher bars for you. Or you can do it yourself ---- ask me how.
