This year is going so fast. It is hard to believe Christmas will be here in just three short months! It is a great time to think about that special gift for a friend or loved one. I have been getting commissions already for portraits and landscape paintings,etc. I had a call the other day asking me if I could do a portrait from a photo that was taken long ago of their grandparent. I told him, "Yes I can". I actually did portraits for someone last Christmas of wedding portraits and then had prints made for him printed on canvas that he could keep. He gave the original portraits to his children for their Christmas presents. Maybe you would like to have someone in your family made into an oil portrait. Please feel free to contact me if you would like information. You can contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org Below is an example of a portrait I completed from a vintage photograph.
