Commissioned Oil Paintings created from photographs…

On this page you can find information on how to have an oil painting handpainted from your photo. As I said on my home page, your painting will be hand done in oil paint on canvas, and it will take me approximately 3 weeks to finish once I get started on it. The quality of your photograph, will to a certain extent; affect the outcome of your painting when it is finished. Using several photographs can help to fill in the ‘missing’ details to a degree…and I can tell you exactly what you can expect in your painting’s outcome before I get started. More information is available about this by clicking on this link to… How To Choose The Right Photo For Your Commissioned Oil Painting.

I consider it a true honor to be trusted with re-creating a special memory on canvas…one that will hopefully make you feel as though you are seeing it just as you remember it when the photo was taken, or as if you are right there in that place at that moment, experiencing it in person for yourself.  I welcome the opportunity to talk with you about your commissioned painting!

You can view a list of the available sizes for your painting, as well as a price list, when you click on the button below.
