Portraits and "Love at First Sight" Baby Portraits
"Love at First Sight" is what comes to mind when it comes to babies. These portraits are rendered in dry pastel from a photo that you provide. I include a custom 8x8 or 8x10 frame suitable for the artwork . What a perfect way to gift a new mother or grandmother and in that light I have kept them small and priced for gift-giving. I am not limited to newborns or babies and will work with photos of children and adults as well.
Faces have always intrigued me and I have a special interest in rendering an eye or a nose until I am pleased with a likeness to the subject. The medium varies. Depending on the face and the tone to be set - I might choose between soft pastel, oil pastel or acrylics.
Portraits are primarily commissions with photos as reference though I also paint from live modeling sessions and sell figure paintings as well as portraiture.
