Do you have a gorgeous photograph with an ugly background? It happens, I can help.
Sometimes photos don’t capture a memory quite the way I want; the pose is perfect! …but the lighting is off.
My son looked so cute in this photo, but it was early Spring and our yard was dead. (Seriously dead, the only time I have a green thumb is if I smear paint on it.) 2/3 of this sweet moment was ugly brown patches of grass and I was pretty bummed.
Summer came, the grass was green, and I kept trying to figure out how to get a 2 year old to stop destroying the dandelions.
Waiting to take another picture seemed silly, anyway. How was I supposed to set up a cute picture of a toddler and get perfect results? How was I supposed to stop him from destroying the nice green grass and dandelions with his toy truck? Mission: Impossible.
Thankfully I am an artist, and I love painting portraits!
Have you had the same problem? Have a great picture you would like painted but the background is you at the grocery store? No worries- I can work with you to create a great work of art you’ll love.
I’ve been painting portraits professionally (say that 3 times fast!) since 2007. 5 years and almost 100 portraits later and I have the process perfected.
After checking out through Etsy you e-mail or message me a great, high resolution photo of the people for your painting, or a couple if you’d like me to combine portraits from separate photographs. I can add a beautiful painterly, classic, background to your painting or a solid color of your choice. I use professional quality acrylic on 140lb, cold pressed, Fabriano brand archival watercolor paper.
If you don’t speak artist this means it is a high quality, thick paper with a great texture. It looks gorgeous and is easy to display: pop your portrait into any frame with an 8 x 10 opening and you are set!
It takes only takes about a week to sketch, paint, seal, and mail your original painting.
I stay connected with you through out the process. I email you photos of the sketch, the work in progress, and the finished piece so you can be sure your custom painting is perfect.
Not to brag, but I have awesome customers who leave glowing feedback!
Kat is amazingly talented. She did an unbelievable portrait for me, was so quick to communicate, and sent it out in a fast timeline with no extra fees. I will DEFINITELY be ordering portraits from her in the future!!! Best deal on etsy!
