I have to admit I have totally fallen behind in announcing the names of my wonderful newsletter subscribers. My mom passed away in late November and to be honest after dealing with tons of Christmas portrait orders, I just needed to mourn and collect myself again. So please forgive - you have not been forgotten and I really appreciate all of you who continue to read my newsletter.
It's time for a new portrait raffle winner announcement. Our February portrait raffle winner will receive an 8x10 in Digital portrait of a loved one.
Please submit one or two photos of a loved one (pet or person - 1 figure only) via the Contact link . I will use the colors in the background of your photo to create a loosely painted, semi-solid colored background. If you prefer a different color for the background let me know. I will show you a photo of the painting in progress.
When the painting is finished you will receive a high-resolution JPG file via email, which can be uploaded to any print on demand center to be printed on paper, canvas, wood, metal or other available surfaces of your choice.
Your free portrait offer is valid for one month from the date this announcement is made and will expire if I have not received your photo submission by the end of the month. However, your name will be entered again in future raffles as long as you remain a subscriber.
What is a Digital Portrait?
A digital portrait is a portrait that is created using a stylus and tablet on a computer. I have access to countless paint mediums, like oils, watercolors, acrylics, pen, and ink, etc. and can merge these different mediums to create truly unique pieces of art. Every portrait is entirely hand painted by me and years of experience as a traditional oil painter allow me to create paintings that are truly special. Digital portraits can be made to look just like an oil portrait, however, they also allow for a lot of experimentation that can result in paintings with very interesting backgrounds for your portraits. Once the painting is finished it is uploaded as a high-resolution JPG file and send to you. All you need to do then is upload it to any print on demand center to get it printed on canvas or paper.
GREAT NEWS FOR EXISTING SUBSCRIBERS
Your name is automatically entered once a month in the Portrait Giveaway. All you have to do is open your weekly newsletter and see if you have won.
HOW OFTEN CAN I ENTER IN THE GIVEAWAY?
Once you are a subscriber and remain a subscriber to my weekly newsletter, you are automatically entered into the monthly giveaway. Of course, you can invite friends and family members to enter as well. However, only one email address will count towards the random drawing.
Throughout the year all my readers will get to see the new portraits being painted via my blog posts that are sent out in the weekly newsletter. I would love it if you pop in and leave a comment on the blog to let me know what you think. Since a portrait can be painted in many styles and finishes, this is a great way for you to see what is possible with a custom painted portrait.
Thank you all for subscribing and following my work. I am looking forward to seeing who I get to paint next. Person or pet?!
