I work from your favorite photos to create an original work of art in acrylics on stretched canvas.
I begin by lightly sketching the subject of your painting on a smooth canvas. This makes it easier to get the likeness initially. When the likeness is ready, I begin applying thin layers of paint to eventually build up to the desired colors of the finished work.
Each painting is as unique as the photo it is taken from! If you're less than thrilled with the background in your photo, as was the case with the photo above, we can discuss changes before I start work on your painting. Working together, we can always use artistic license to paint in different surroundings. The only limits are your imagination!
When you are satisfied with your painting, I will then apply 2 coats of a protective sealant. This will visually enhance the colors as well as protect the painting from dust and debris. Be sure not to hang it in direct sunlight! Harsh lights will adversely affect any work of art.
In the end, an original painting is a thing of beauty, to be enjoyed by you and your family for generations to come!
Come see me at the Athens Schoolhouse Antiques Show on the second Saturday/Sunday of every month!
I will be working on a painting at Booth #316, located in the Gymnasium.
The remainder of the month you'll find me working out of my home in Waco, KY.
