Have you ever wondered what it would be like to time travel back a 150 years or more? Have you ever fantasized about wearing top hats or corsets and frilly dresses? Well, you don't have to wonder about it anymore. You can get your fantasy self portrait painted here! I'll make you look dapper and comely in all the clothing and accoutrements of the Victorian and Edwardian era.
I take your stories; like the moments you're most proud of, or the trips you've taken, or your favorite pet and combine them into a special painting that celebrates your life and your accomplishments.
I do this for anyone, but right now, I'm donating one custom portrait to the NW Dance Project for their silent auction. They are one of my favorite dance troupes so I am happy to help them raise money to keep up their amazing performance art. If you win this portrait painting, here's what you'll get:
- You or up 2 people of your choice painted on an oval 16x20" canvas.
- Your stories, accomplishments and/or dreams illustrated in this portrait.
- A favorite animal or pet in this portrait with you.
- An in-depth interview so I can get to know who you are and what you want in this custom portrait.
- You painted in subdued vintage colors and clothing.
- A one-of-a-kind piece of artwork, valued at $650.00.
Below are a couple examples of portraits I've been commissioned to paint before. Make sure you go to the NW Dance Project's Golden Gala and put in your bid to win this luxurious fantasy portrait. It's May 12th, 2018!
