Painting in progress

I have been working on this painting and its just about done.  Just adding some final touches now.

A few paintings with some details part 1

Here are a few paintings I am working on.  Some of these canvas's are more muted in their colors and some are a bit more vibrant in their color tones.  I am using brushes and pallet knives to get the look I am looking for............enjoy!

Wall portraits on display

Many times our clients ask us the where is the best place to display their family portrait.  Some times the best place is not the most obvious place.  So here are some examples.  From the most popular spots like a fire place or over the couch to entrance ways and more.

It's all in the details

I'm going to post some commissioned portraits and new studio samples for our next couple of posts.  Here is a painting we were commissioned to create of a mom with her son and their dog in a local park.  We painted in many of the flowers afterwards to add more details and warmth to the portrait.
