My Scene

In late July, I was approached by a friend of mine who wanted to get a portrait painted. The portrait was for her sister and brother-in-law--also friends of mine--who were moving to another state. My client/friend wanted this picture to be a great conversation piece and something that they'd love. Another criteria was that she wanted it to be big!

I was just too excited! The photo she provided was of the couple during their engagement. It featured them gazing into each other's eyes. The picture was slightly faded, but my graphics program quickly fixed that, and the true reference picture was ready. My client/friend also requested a scenic background, which was also featured as a framed picture behind the couple in the original photograph.

To the right you'll see the finished product -- an original 22x28 portrait of my friends. I really enjoyed during this for them. Feel free to click the image for a more detailed view.
