Portraits painted in oil on linen. Capture an age and keep it for ages to come! 3 to 5 is an optimal age for a child's portrait, but I will work with any age, child or adult.
Kids give the greatest expressions sometimes, even "once in a lifetime" expressions. That is just one reason why I use photography as an intermediate step toward the finished piece. It is impossible to get the little guy to repeat an expression, let alone "hold that smile" for even a short period. That's when the camera comes to the rescue!
A 16x20, which is an excellent size for a child's head and shoulders portrait, is currently $1400.
