Portraits

The human face is one of the most beautiful and inspiring subjects to paint. A portrait of a loved one for the home – children, a spouse, or family members – is creative beauty of a person in a special moment in time. Portraits continue the celebration of life’s milestones with occasions like Graduations, Weddings, and Anniversaries. Corporate Portraits for a business or institution honor a person in their occupation and achievements. Portraits can be painted from a live sitting combined with study sketches and photographs to base the portrait on. The portrait can also be painted from photographs that are supplied by the client.
