This listing is for a custom 5x7" oil portrait on canvas panel painted from your photograph.

Let me turn your favorite snapshot into a treasured heirloom.

Painting people is my passion and I strive to create portraits full of personality and life (not exact copies of your photo in paint!)

I paint in the style of the old masters, beginning with carefully applied and sanded gesso to create a smooth surface perfect for capturing fine details. Next, I paint a detailed grisaille (rendering values in white and earth tones) then build up many layers of colored glazes. This creates a depth and glow like the warmth of skin.

The smaller format makes paintings easy and inexpensive to frame and hang in your home. Groupings look fantastic!

Procedure and Guarrantee

1. Convo me with any questions or to show me the photo you are considering so that I can determine if the quality is good enough for a painting reference.

2. Purchase the listing

3. E-mail me your photo (additional photos can be helpful to give me a better idea of the subject in general or to clarify details like eye, hair and skin color.

4. I will e-mail you a photo for approval upon completing the underpainting. If you are happy with the direction of the work, I will continue to add color.(allow 2-3 weeks)

5. I will finish the painting and e-mail another photo for approval (another 2 weeks). If you are happy with the results, I will send the painting in a padded and secure envelope. If you are unsatisfied with the painting for any reason, I will refund the full price and retain the painting.

*A commissioned portrait is often a once in a lifetime purchase and I am committed to your complete satisfaction!*
