For this, I was careful to try to grasp a magical feeling while not coming close to any copyright infringement. It was a piece that I really had a lot of fun with. Please take a moment to look through your photograph albums. Then, just take a snap or scan. I'll be sure to get back to you with any ideas.
My production time (with drying) usually is a week & a half. I usually offer my productions with a matte & a frame. This, along with the artistic media requirements, affect my completed charge. I have been known to actually do some searching for an image to meet a customer's description. Just let me know what you have in mind & when you need your painting by.
Then, let me loose...let's see what comes out of my paintbrush!

I have been most recently applying my artistic skills to converting photographs into paintings. I start with any image or painting of your choice. Then, I make an outline on my choice of canvas. Then, I usually start with acrylic paints. My use of media might seem confusing. I am comfortable using paints - acrylic or water color, markers, pastels, colored pencils, pastels...almost anything that will capture the image. I've even been known to add a special surprise with luminescent paints.
I have found my greatest successes when a customer supplies the photo, listen to my feedback; but, then, just lets me lose on it.
Below is a painting for a customer who allowed me to do just that. She explained that her daughter loves books, and had most recently truly enjoyed the Harry Potter series. This shows a few of the steps & what I came up with.
