Modern Master Painted Portrait on Canvas

Is there anything more worthwhile than a portrait that is classic, timeless? I have loved this image of Emi in her christening gown since the moment I clicked the shutter. It was toward the end of our session, and she was beginning to tire. However, with her mother and me continuing to talk with her, she shared this sweet look with me.

Emi's Christening Gown

Over the years, I have often looked at painted portraits as the ultimate heirloom. However, the cost of an original handpainted oil portrait is completely out of reach for the majority of us. An alternative is a painted photograph; however, I have seen lots of poorly done painted portraits and was becoming discouraged. However, after months of searching, I have located the very best portrait painter! Unfortunately, you will not be able to enjoy the full complexities of this portrait on your computer screen, but I’m sure you will see the difference between a portrait out of the camera and a portrait enhanced by a painting artist. (How I envy her skills!)

If you are interested in seeing this portrait in person, I welcome you to schedule an appointment to come by my studio. I would love creating an heirloom portrait for your family!
