"The Time Out Chair" Before and After

This original image was captured as an out-take during a studio portrait session. Although quite imperfect, Mom felt this display of attitude was so representative of her daughter at this age.

The distraction of the bright white chair is reduced, the unflattering upper arm is eliminated, suggesting it's simply tucked in under the dress. Distortion of the facial features is corrected. Her beautiful curls are enhanced and pulled forward over the chair using a portion of a different image from the session, and the tulle skirt is neatened up. Tears were added to embellish the story already present, resulting in an exquisite portrait.

LEARN MORE ABOUT WALL ART

Where do we start?

The best route to heirloom art is to begin with a studio portrait session styled with the end in mind. Sometimes circumstance makes this impractical. Have no fear, I can also create beautiful pieces from your own images as long as you are the original creator, or can provide proof of permission to use.

How It Works

Your artwork is designed to beautifully compliment your home and style. Each stroke is hand rendered and deliberately placed in the final artwork based on reference images. Expression and personality are carried into the final piece while distractions are eliminated, allowing the subject to shine. 

The End Result

Fine Art Commissions are sold as completed pieces of wall art. Most clients prefer to enjoy their art as framed canvas prints. Frames from minimalist to traditional are sure to suit any aesthetic. Upgrade to a handmade Museum frame for a show-stopping installation.

Low Resolution Cell Phone Images Provided by The Client

Even if your original images are low quality, they can become cherished pieces of art for your home. These four dogs were part of their humans' lives over different periods of time. The client wanted to surprise her husband by commissioning a single, large piece of wall art featuring all of them. 

Poor backgrounds and distracting elements from the original images are eliminated, leaving the subjects to shine in the finished piece.

"Baby Blues" Transformation

Little sister was jealous of big sister getting the camera and spotlight for a bit, so we let her pose with the sun hat and small bouquet. Two years old is a tough age for perfect posing, but this one stole Mom's heart. 

A great expression is often the only baseline requirement for a piece of precious art that tugs at the heartstrings. The color of the hat and dress were adjusted to match, some of the details are simplified, and everything is painted together for a soft cohesive finished piece.

Handcrafted From Start To Finish

After your hand rendered commission is completed in the studio, it is meticulously finished by master craftsmen. There is no detail overlooked in creating your museum quality heirloom art. The canvas is selected, stretched and cut by hand. The artwork is bonded to the canvas and stretched over solid wood. Additional brushwork is applied to the sealed canvas, elevating the textural qualities of each stroke. Finally the canvas is mounted in a frame specifically curated to enhance the beauty of the artwork, as well as to compliment your home and decor. 

 

Traditional Oil Painting vs Hand Rendered Mixed Media Art

 

A hand painted portrait is a true work of art. In today's world of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and software that gets more and more powerful, it can be hard to understand how art is created. For the highest quality results, a hand rendered fine art commission is the best investment.

Traditional oil paintings speak of exclusivity and refinement. They are beautiful to behold, with a classic and timeless style. But the process of painting a portrait in oil is time consuming. The painting is built up in layers, each one requiring time to dry and cure before the next can be added. The final piece is then allowed to dry completely - this process can take weeks, and even months. In today's world of instant download, and same day deliveries, this can seem like an eternity. While it is well worth the wait, sometimes that wait is not practical. 

Hand rendered mixed media art can be created in a fraction of the time, but with no less beauty and grace. Each stroke in my mixed media painting is placed with purpose, one at a time. The creation process mimics that of traditional painting styles using a digital tablet and art pen. There are no filters or automation used to create these one of a kind pieces of art. The painting is created in layers, each one building upon the next, to produce a depth and dimension that rivals traditional works. 

Each Fine Art Commission is then finished on the highest quality materials, by master craftsman with over 50 years experience. The hand rendered strokes in the original image are overlaid with individually applied brushstrokes to add texture and the tactile impression of oil paint. Frames are chosen from a carefully curated collection ranging from simple to ornate. Museum Classic frames, antiqued and subtly embellished with gold leaf imported from Germany and Italy, continue to elevate the timeless beauty of these prestigious pieces. 

Throughout the commission process, we will work together to pair your artwork with the finishing presentation that will be most complimentary for the subject matter and your home. There is something to enhance every decor. 

Commissions of people, pets, and places can be created from your own photographs, or images created in the studio. All commissions include a design consultation, one approval checkpoint, and complimentary installation.
