Intimate portraits include several distinct portrait types. We are all so different and want a unique look. I have categorized them in a way which is designed only to give you some ideas. Your image will be custom created and unique for you. You don’t have to fit into any category.
Please view these images and then call me to schedule a complimentary consultation to discuss the services which are available to you. We will discuss in detail the process of creating your unique portrait, we will discuss your many options and the price for services.
Roses are beautiful but complex to paint. It’s been a few months now, that I focused on painting roses. I started by painting single roses which I enjoy, but I also wanted to paint rose bouquets and to paint roses abstractly without a visual reference. This required that I understand the flower structure and be able to visualize the petals/flowers and lighting as the flower is turned.
I love the vintage tray the vase is sitting on. I purchase most of my still life elements at Goodwill or at Poulsbo Antiques. On this one occasion, I walked into Goodwill and immediately spotted this tray – actually a removable table top. You can’t see much of the tray in this painting, but it really is beautiful. It was $175.00. I had no place to use it as a table and it was far too expensive to use as an occasional still life prop – so I walked away – reluctantly. The next time I was there it was $75.00. “WOW”, I thought, but I still walked away. The next time, I was there it was $15.00!!! This item had been in the floor so long that the cashier further reduced it to $11.00. We all love a good deal!! Hope you enjoy this painting. Next week I will post a very different style of painting – for me, and painted completely from imagination – no roses involved.
