Client Testimonial: “What a beautiful painting!!! I absolutely love it! Thank you so much!!! Thank you!   I know that I really love the final portrait. It is amazing and gorgeous. I hope my hubby likes it too."

by Hannah Hill (portrait owner of Cherry Blossoms)

If you need some ideas on a portrait concept, here are some samples of portrait commissions previously completed.  I offer three different kinds of portraits to fit your budget.  The deluxe quality portrait is an oil on canvas at the standard head and shoulder and the midrange portrait is a sepia colored oil portrait on canvas. The third option is a black and white charcoal portrait on paper. 

Harper's Family (Sepia)

11" x 14" - 20" X 16"  This is an example of a sepia colored portrait on canvas and they are less expensive than the deluxe full color portrait. This was the couple's very first baby and baby Harper had her own way of controlling  sleep time for the household.  This small  portrait with three  people and no background starts at $1050. 

Keith (Black & White)

11" x 14" - 16" X 20"  This is an example of a black and white/charcoal on paper portrait.  We got an opportunity to meet this gentleman and he had an interesting face.  He wasn't confident that he wanted to be in a portrait, but I had to paint it.  

A painting like this would start at  $950.
